**OBJECTIVE:**

The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible by rolling and re-rolling the dice to achieve specific combinations. In single player games, try and beat your previous score!

**HOW TO PLAY:**

1. Each player takes a scorecard.

2. Take it in turns to roll the 5 dice. The player with the highest cumulative number goes first and play continues clockwise.

3. On each turn, the player rolls all five dice. The player can then choose to keep some of the dice and re-roll the others up to two more times.

4. After the third roll, the player must fill in a box on the scorecard with a score based on the combination of dice rolled (see scoring section), or if that's not possible, a zero needs to be added to any box.

5. Once a category has been scored, it cannot be scored again for the rest of the game.

6. Play continues clockwise with each player taking turns rolling the dice and adding scores/zero every turn.

7. The game ends when all players have filled in all the categories on their scorecard.

8. The player with the highest total score at the end of the game wins.
