A Dice Strategy Board Game - ROY G. BIV

ROYGBIV is a very simple to learn, quick to play, but extremely challenging Iphone , iPod, & iPad strategy board game. Think of it as "Chess With Numbers".

Using 49 7-sided dice and a 7x7 board, ROYGBIV is a iphone strategy board game that combines the logic of chess, the simplicity of Go, and the risk-reward elements of Poker. It requires players to be able to calculate a variety of possible moves quickly while planning several moves in advance.

ROYGBIV is a very simple game. It really has one rule.

A played die captures/scores any lower value die in the ROW or COLUMN it is played in. The Player scores the total value of all captured dice, and the captured dice change to the value of the played die.

100% Free 1 Player & 2 Player Gaming!

4 Game Variations:


Quick Rules

1. A Played Die captures & scores the total value of any dice of LOWER value in BOTH the ROW & COLUMN it is played in.

2. Captured dice are changed to the value of the played die but stay on the board. A Played die Does Not score any dice of Equal or Greater value.

3. Highest Score Wins.


The Value of the played Die is added to any scoring play. Non scoring plays recive no points.


ROYGBIV Dominos style. Die MUST be placed adjacent to a die on the board. Any of the 8 squares around a die on the board is a legal play.


Try scoring the LEAST amount of points. Same rules, just the completely opposite Goal! Extremely challenging.

Our unique 2 player game negotiation module sets the standard in 2 player gaming.

Players get two round to negotiate agreed settings. If diplomacy fails, the computer decides the setting randomly.

Unmatched game matching flexibility only in ROY G. BIV.


One Player Leaderboard - See who is best against the computer. Leaderboards for each variation and an Overall Leaderboard.

Two Player Leaderboard Ranking System

Both the winner and loser get leaderboard points in every game! How much they get is dependent upon how well they played.

Not only does ROY G. BIV has a two player leaderboard for every variation and an overall grand master leader, but also a unique leader point system that rewards great losing play more than easy victories.

Well played games are awarded more points to split between players. Close games split the point nearly evenly. Thus playing a hard fought, well played game that ends in defeat gives both the winner and loser more leader points than a winner in a poorly played blowout.

Finally a game leaderboard that recognizes that a well played loss deserves nearly as much recognition as a well played victory!

Only by quitting a match will you receive no leaderboard points. So do your best and even in defeat you will be rewarded!

Best of all, the basic dice game app is FREE for Iphone, Ipod & Ipad! Available in Single Player and Two Player via Gamecenter.

Black Ops's comments:

Hello All,

Just wanted to invite fellow gamers to try the new board game we developed called ROY G. BIV. It is currently available for iPhone & iPad. It is a bit of a hybrid of chess & go/reversi/othello with numbers and risk/reward scoring.

The one player game is free to play forever. We lowered the full version price, which includes 2 player and numerous variations, from $2.99 to $0.99 through the end of the year.

We would love the input of game players as to what they like & dislike about the app and what we could do to make it better. Additionally, we would love to hear what kind of game apps you would like to see/play in the future.

Feel free to contact us through PM or via our website which can be found from the iTunes app page.

Happy holidays to all and we'll see you on Game Center!

Color me confused but where are all of the leaderboards? I just see one listing for each game mode in GC and have no idea if it is for single or two player. Why not have local leaderboards as well since GC will really limit you on how many leaderboards a game can possess.
