In Martian Dice you are Martians invading Earth to abduct humans, chickens, and cows. Rolling the 13 custom dice will yield a combination of pesky Tanks, sizzling Death Rays, and terrified fleeing Humans, Cows, and Chickens. The tanks will defend the earthlings unless you have set aside enough Death Rays to defeat the tanks.  On each roll you can abduct one type of earthling or claim death rays.  Only one type of earthling can be abducted per roll.  Continue rolling your remaining dice until you are satisfied with your haul or you run out of dice.   Claim a bonus at the end of your turn if you have abducted at least one of each type of earthling.  The game end is triggered when a Martian reaches a total score of 25 points or more.  Be the winning Martian by scoring the most points!
