Description

Those that know the game of Uckers need read no further, this is what you've been looking for. Six offs, mixiblobs and all bits in 8 piece-ings are here!

Select WAFU rules like suck backs and blow backs if you want to play with them. Everyone plays Uckers slightly differently so select your favourite rules!

If you're new to the game then learn in tutorial mode one of the most addictive board games ever made. You play with 2 colours each and aim to block your opponent from moving around the board by 'blobing up' whilst still getting your bits around the board first.

Enjoy the satisfaction of hacking off a maxi-mixi-blob and sending all your opponents bits home while you press on to victory.

• Tutorial mode teaches you how to play.
• Easily view game stats from the home screen

Getting Started

The Uckers app is a 2-player game played against a computer opponent. Each player plays with tokens or ‘bits’ of either red and yellow or green and blue. The aim is to move your bits clockwise around the board and onto the respective final squares before your opponent does.

You’ll need a 6 to get one of your bits out of the home squares and then you’re free to move them around the board using one or both of the dice you roll. Each time you roll the dice, you must use both dice to move your bits if you can.

Important things to remember

If you roll a 6 then you get another go. Rolling a double also gets another go if you have that rule turned on in settings. However, rolling a double 6 does not get 2 extra goes.

In the event that progression is not possible with the resultant of both dice, then the value of the highest scoring dice is to be used, unless progression is blocked. If bits cannot be moved with the value of either die, then that's the end of your turn.

Hacking off

If your bit lands on a square with one of your opponent’s bits on then you take (‘hack off’) their bit and send it back home.

Blobbing up

If you get 2 bits of the same colour on one square (a ‘blob’) then your opponent cannot get past or hack off these bits. This is the best way to slow down your opponent and stop them getting round the board. However, if you have 2 or more bits of differing colours on one square then this is known as a mixi-blob. Your opponent can hack off all the bits in a mixi blob if one of their bits lands on that square and your opponent can pass these squares with impunity.

Sixing-Off

You can get your bits past a blob by landing one of your bits on the square immediately behind the blob and rolling a six on the first roll of your turn. You can then elect to ‘six-off’ the blob by tapping the ‘6’ over the square in question. You’ll need to roll a number of sixes in succession greater than the number of bits in the blob (plus one extra six if your bit needs to get out of home as well). This will then allow you to send your opponent’s bits all back home whilst moving one of your bits forward onto the square.

Finishing

Once one of your bits gets towards the end of the board, when it is on those squares of its own colour, it is safe and cannot be hacked-off by your opponent.

The first player to get all their bits onto the final squares with an exact dice roll is the winner. If this is done before their opponent gets any bit round the board, it is known as an eight-piecing. If the winner gets all of their bits in before their opponent has got any bits out into play then it is known as an eight piece in the hole.

Special Rules

select form the settings screen some commonly used rules: roll again on a double; have all your bits sent home if 3 doubles are rolled; and have all your bits sent home if 6 sixes are rolled.

Well worth a quid

With free apps galore to choose from, you might miss this one without realising. For 99p though, you get NO ADS !! On top of that, it is the King of mess-deck games, Uckers. With the ability to toggle key rules on and off, the game can be as infuriating as you like. Main snag is that you’re playing against a computer, so you can’t challenge an old oppo yet. Minor snag is the lack of sound from rolling dice or tapping counters, but you can always choose your own background music and have whatever poncy drink you want - without the risk of acquiring a lifelong nickname. Sandy bottoms !

Thankful to get this Uckers App

Excellent to be able to play Uckers once more. Brought back very many happy memories playing down the mess on Beira Patrol in particular. As well as playing online being in the pipeline could we also be able to synchronise between our devices so that we can continue to play whenever? Once again a big thumbs up for creating this App.

Top Retro Game

Such a great game with no adverts and no rip off additions. Bravo to the developers especially during these lockdown times for creating a game to pass the time away. As a current serviceman in the RAF I have played this many times all over the world using different rules. Could the developers please consider blobs moving backwards with doubles. Also using a snake when playing with less than 4 players. The snake uses an unused colour and moves around the board one space at a time every time a 6 is thrown. The snake eats everything in its path and you have to role a large enough number to jump over it. Great game though.
