This is a bonus feature exclusive to the GBC and SNES versions.

Pachisi (a.k.a. Sugoroku in Japanese) is a board game where you move from a starting tile to one designated as the finish. On the way to the finish there are many obstacles and positive bonuses. You need a Pachisi Ticket to play.

Rules[edit]

At the start you will receive a set amount of dice on each track. For example you will get 10 dice for the first track and 70 for the fifth track.

When it is your turn, you can roll a die (if you haven't used them all yet), look around the map, check your attributes, or quit playing Pachisi.

Actions
  • Roll: use a die to move 1-6 tiles forward and land on a new tile.
  • Look around the board:
  • Check your status:
  • Quit:
Rewards

After you reach the goal you can receive a wonderful prize. Also note that the game board also has some treasure chests, cupboards, and pots that can be looted one time. There are five tracks that can be reached by finding their location in the overworld and in Alefgard. Each track is harder than the previous ones. If you get the Gold Pass by acquiring 100 TinyMedal/Small Medals, you can play the tracks an unlimited number of times.

Purple tiles[edit]

DQ3 Pachisi Questionfield.png What happens on this tile is random. You may receive money, fight a battle, lose experience, change a character's personality, etc.

DQ3 Pachisi Dangerfield.png A character's attribute will be adjusted, positively or negatively. First, roll the die to determine which attribute will be changed (1-Strength, 2-Agility, 3-Stamina, 4-Wisdom, 5-Luck or 6-HP). Then roll a second die that will determine how much you will receive or lose (a roll of 1-3 results in a reduction of that amount, but a roll of 4-6 results in an addition of that amount).

Yellow tiles[edit]
