Instructions

Getting started

Whoever starts a a new game can determine the number of players and the stakes. The numbers rolled with the dice will be entered into the chart located on the left side of the table. Every player has his own column, which is marked by a special dice colour. The sums of equal points will be entered in the upper section of the chart. Below are those dice combinations for which you can score additional points.

Gameplay

The game is controlled with the help of the mouse. The dice will be shaken by clicking the button "Roll the dice". Every player has 3 trials (throws) per game round. Every player can decide whether they want to enter the number rolled at the lower edge of the playing field or roll the dice again. You don't have to make use of all trials.

To move a dice to another location, select the dice by clicking the left mouse button and keep it pressed until you have moved the dice to the desired location.

At the end of your move you decide in which row you want your points to be entered. Note: Points can only be entered where you haven't noted any points yet. If you cannot achieve a matching result during a game move you have to cross out the field with a mouse click. No more points can be entered there for the remainder of the game.

End of the game

The chart is full after 14 rounds and the game is over. Whoever has collected the most points is the winner.

Scoring

Different dice combinations as well as matching numbers of points will be awarded with extra points after every round:
