# 5,000

We call this "Five Thousand" because that's the score that wins the game.

TO PLAY
You roll 5 dice, and then see if you score any points:

- ones are worth 100 pts.
- fives are worth 50 pts.
- three of any number (in the same roll) is times 100 (i.e. three twos would be 200 pts.)
- three ones is 1,000 pts.
- if you roll five consecutive numbers in one roll (i.e. 1,2,3,4,5 or 2,3,4,5,6) that's an automatic 500 pts.

You keep rolling as long as you keep rolling scoring dice, and can stop at any time.
After you roll the dice, you take out the scoring dice and either take that score and stop, or roll the remaining non-scoring dice to try to get more points.

If all five dice score, you can pick up all five of them and continue the turn.
If at any time during the turn, the dice do not score..... ZILCH! You are awarded zero points and must pass the dice to the next player.

Have fun!

when i played with my sister and her boyfriend we played these exact rules lacking the '12345 or 23456' rule, but we also added in when someone gets to 5000 everyone else has one turn to get to 5000 to beat them. or something like that.....that rule never came into play my sis' boyfriend won by far too much.

I've played this game. We called it Farkle. We ruled though that you could get 3 ZILCH rolls before you passed on to the next player and you still got your points. Just makes it a lil easier to get points.

we also have this rule: When you reach 4000pts you subtract the pts that you lose in a "ZILCH" hand. More fun!
