Eight playing dice must be tipped to return them to the correct sequence, from 1 to 8, on the game board, having been mixed up at random. An interesting combination game for one or two players, with an infinite number of starting positions and various levels of difficulty.

TIP THE DICE wooden puzzle by publisher PHILOS, is about firstly spilling the wooden dice onto a soft, flat surface, then placing the wooden dice in a jumbled, scrambled way back onto the 3x3 tray, then tipping the dice back to solve position, which could take you forever if you play with all 8 dice, but you can choose smaller solveplay variations using only 4 or less dice, this wooden puzzle is challenging using only 2 or 3 dice, so playing smaller variations of this wooden puzzle is what makes it level 8, but using all 8 dice would make TIP THE DICE more like a level 10; also you'll need to use a small blowtorch or lighter flame to carefully blacken one of the 3x3 tray's edges for easier re-orientation in case after you have to pause in the middle of solveplay, this wooden puzzle makes lots of clacking sounds, if solveplaying noisy wooden puzzles are okay with you, and the dice don't fit snugly into the tray, so you frequently might keep accidentally flipping the dice wrong; overall, PHILOS's TIP THE DICE wooden puzzle is worth collecting!
