Cubris

Game Information

Short Introduction: 
Reverse Jenga with ice.
Platform/System: 
non-digital (board game, card game, physical game, etc.)
Platform note: 
Ice, perfect because it freezes to other ice for utterly ridiculous stacks.
Brief Play Description: 

Setup:

Get a pair of ice cube trays (28 cubes) and a platform (4-inch diameter tupperware lid or napkin). Each player will also need a cup or plate to hold his or her Pile of Liability.

Phase 1: Growing Liability

Randomly choose a turn order.

On your turn, put one ice cube from the trays onto the platform, or onto ice that's on the platform. You may freely touch and rearrange ice on the platform on your turn. Whenever ice falls off the platform, put it into your personal Pile of Liability.

Phase 2: SUDDEN DEATH

On each turn, the player with the most ice in his Pile of Liability places a cube from his Pile onto the platform (or ice that's on the platform). If multiple players are tied, they go in clockwise order, starting with the player who most recently took a turn.

If you knock of any pieces during SUDDEN DEATH, you lose you're out of the game.
If you run out of pieces during SUDDEN DEATH, you win!
If you're the last player standing during SUDDEN DEATH, you win!

If you run out of ice cubes, no one loses! Try again with a smaller platform!

Regardless of phase, heckling is strongly encouraged.

Pro tip:

Milking: When placing a piece in a rough spot, “milk” it by squeezing it with your hand to make a wet surface in the target area. Then hold the piece in place, and the water will (hopefully) refreeze, (probably) making it stick.
