Product Description

What is Button Men? Only the most exciting, strategic, and unclassifiable game of 1999. It won two Origins Awards, including Best Abstract Board Game and Best Graphic Presentation of a Board Game of 1999. And it's spawned a dozen expansions with more than 150 characters.

Basically, both players have a fighter who's represented by a button. That fighter is represented by five polyhedral dice. The two players take turns rolling dice and capturing each other's dice, and whoever captures the most points wins.

Sound simple? Yes, it is. But the strategy is deep. Button Men has its own fan site, at You can zip over there to check out the rules, the variants, and plenty of strategy hints. And you can get the skinny on all the weird Button Men in the world, including characters from outside Cheapass Games.
