Once you accumulate 1500 points you can add to your score in 50 point increments. You can roll the dice until you bust. You bust when you don't roll a 5, 1, three of a kind or more with every roll. You can stop rolling at anytime and take the points. If you roll 1500 points and keep rolling, and you don't get a 5,1, or three of a kind or more, you lose everything. The object is to roll until you don't think you will get a 5,1, or three of a kind or higher. Once you decide to stop rolling add your points up and let someone else have their go. The first one to 10,000 wins.
Here is what the dice are worth:
Only 5s, 1s, three of a kind or more or a 1,2,3,4,5,6 sequence score.
- Ones are worth 100 pts.
- Fives are worth 50 pts.
- If you roll three of a kind, add 2 zeros to what you rolled. i.e. three sixes = 600 points, three fours is 400 points. The exception is with ones. Three ones = 1100 points.
- If you roll a four of a kind you double it. So four fives is 1000 points, five fives is 2000 points, four ones is 2200 points, five ones is 4400 points.
- If you roll a 1,2,3,4,5,6 in one roll it is 1500 points.
A player may elect to roll until he/she busts.
The only time a player must keep rolling is when they haven't reached 1500 points.
When a player rolls, they must have a 5,1, or a three of a kind or higher to keep rolling.
To try to explain:
1-5 (50 points)
I keep the 5, then roll the other five dice.
3-4s (400 points)
1-1 (100 points)
1-5 (50 points)
If I have over 1500 points, I can quit at anytime.
My total so far would be 600 points.
If I decide to keep rolling, I would roll all six dice and hope that I got a 5,1, or a three of a kind or more. If I don't I bust and lose the 600 points I had.
Confused - not so bad once you get going!!!
