Goal-A-Minute Soccer uses 6 dice (12 total included in the set) to determine the outcome of a play. On each die there are different results (i.e. goal, pass, dribble, etc.). The offensive player chooses one die from their red "strategy" dice (i.e. shot on goal, pass, dribble, kick deep) and places it in a cup (not supplied) with the 4 white "play" dice. The defensive player also chooses one die from their green "strategy" dice (i.e. block, intercept, steal, tackle) and places it in the cup. The dice are rolled and the common result of the dice is the result of the play. There are 40 total plays per half and once 80 plays are completed the match is over. There are additional offensive and defensive strategies the can affect the results of the plays as well as rules for breaking ties from the dice throws.
