Ultimately, I'd like to have a plastic board created with raised walls for each square. The board would be molded in a clear plastic so you can slip in your own board on the bottom. These boards can vary on number of Home spots, walls and other undetermined special blocks! A man can dream, can't he?
The answer is: yes.
Someone pointed out that the game is similar to Duell. It uses the same "top side of die to determine movement points" mechanic, but the difference is capturing your opponent's dice vs. occupying their Home spots.
