Cult of the Lamb Knucklebones: How To Win
The aim of the Cult of the Lamb Knuklebones mini-game is to get the highest score against your opponent when all die in one side of three columns is filled. This will be challenging as your opponent can remove any die on your side if it places down the same number in the corresponding column.
From the image above, you can see that there is a blue column of three and a yellow couple of die. If you're able to stack two or three dice together, you'll gain more points. If it's yellow, you'll gain four times the original number, while blue will offer you nine times the original number. There's a risk in doing this, however, especially if you match three as if the enemy hits a four on the opposite of your pile of fours, the die on your side will disappear.
While playing Knucklebones, we recommend you diversify your die lineup, so you don't overly rely on one column section. If Ratau in the picture above was able to pull a four instead of a two for the left side, the board would remove 36 from our overall number. Thankfully, the two sixes in the middle will back us up with a solid 24 points.
