In War of the Buttons, 2-4 players lead a "gang" of kids who try to build their own hut. To do this, they use both their own dice and "neutral" dice, while hoping for help from their "big brother" and for no one to tattle on them at school.
War of the Buttons uses themes of the 1912 novel La Guerre des Boutons by Louis Pergaud.
