How to Play

1. Make a dance step

Dance of Muses Movements
  • Everytime a Muse performs a dance step, the value of the die on them increases.

  • You can move a single Muse or a group of Muses. If you make a "group move", raise the dice of all the Muses involved.

  • Muses must always hold hands! You cannot make a move that isolate one or more Muses.

2. Use the abilities of the Muses

Dance of Muses Abilities
  • Use the abilities of the Muses to control the value of the dice you need to win.

  • Some Muses can raise the value of an adjacent die, some others can lower it, some can swap the value of the die on them with another.

  • The abilities can only be applied on dice within the highlighted zones, before or after the dance step.

3. End of the game and scoring

  • The game ends as soon as the die on a Muse reaches the value 6.

  • The die on each Muse who has executed the Will of Apollo (keeping its die on the indicated value) automatically becomes a 6.

  • Compare your dice with other players and find out who did the best dance!

Game Previews

"Nice abstract game with a matching theme where you can assess the impact of your moves from the very opening. Love the art.
The designers did a great job and Space Otter nailed it on the editorial side. This is how this game was meant to be.
Looking forward to getting my copy!"

Leonardo Alese, Tablescope Games

"Dance of Muses is a really nice game. The cards really seems to dance while you play.
You will play with it many times during the same evening without getting bored."

Simone, a playtester

"It's a very strategic game where you have to focus on what you can do, and you have to play it several times before you can handle all the powers, all the strategies, all the things that you can do."

Livio, a playtester

"It is a simple game, but you need to develop a deep strategy to win the match!"

Marco, a playtester

"We’re talking about a decidedly abstract title that, depending on how it is played, can reach really remarkable levels of complexity. What made me sit at the table was the art... when I got up, however, I had the feeling that I just played a game that can really engage anyone, from families to chess players."

Alexander Quarella, GDT Live

From the Playtesters

"I tried the prototype and the game mechanics perfectly match the setting. Love it!"

Heris91 (on BoardgameGeek)

"This game offers a lot with so few components!"

Qualith (on BoardgameGeek)

"I like the design of the cards very much. The layout and icons are very clear, and the muses artwork is gorgeous."

Karin S. (on BoardgameGeek)

"There are enough variations and each game may feel a little bit different. As of this point of view, the game design is pretty good!"

Marek Kolcun (on BoardgameGeek)
