Karuba’s game insert even speeds up play

Insert Here Karuba game insert

It’s time to put another game insert from Insert Here to the test.

It’s even better when the game insert itself helps the game function more smoothly.

Well, that’s what Rob Searing (Insert Here) has done with the custom game insert for Karuba!

Running with the Bulls = Dice Plinko

Running with the Bulls board game

As you might imagine, the theme of Running with the Bulls hearkens to the annual Running of the Bulls festival in Pamplona, Spain where bulls are let loose to run through the town streets.

In the game Running with the Bulls, players have a team of Runners (dice) that scramble through the streets of El Toro trying not to get trampled by the Bulls (big red dice) and trying to end up in favorable locations at the end of town.

The game is played over 3 “Days” (rounds) and the same process is followed each round. The player with the most points after 3 rounds is the winner.
