        • You can keep some of the dice and re-roll the rest.
        • When you roll a third time, you must place in a score or leave it 0.
      • Each time you roll, the scoreboard highlights the possible scores in red.
        • Select the box containing the score you want or leave it as 0.
        • The score includes the value of the dice you saved.

      • The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
    • Scoring
      • Each time you roll a dice, you gain a combination.
        • As much as you can, choose the combination of dice that yields you the most points.
        • You cannot use the same combination more than once.
      • The scoreboard divides the dice combinations into 2 sections.
        • The combinations in the upper section are multiples of the numbers 1 to 6:
          • Getting three dice with the number 5, for instance, yields you 15 points.
          • We recommend aiming for groups of 3 or more of a kind.
          • You receive a bonus of 35 points from collecting 63 points in this section.
        • The combination of the lower sections must fulfill specific categories:
          • 3-of-a-kind
            • This is any three identical numbers
            • Your score is the sum of those three numbers plus the other two dice.
          • 4-of-a-kind
            • This is four identical numbers.
            • Your score is the sum of those four numbers plus the remaining number.
          • Full house
            • This is three identical numbers and 2 identical numbers together.
            • You receive 25 points
          • Small straight
            • This is any 4 numbers in sequential order (e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4)
            • You receive 30 points.
          • Large straight
            • This is any 5 numbers in sequential order (e.g. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
            • You receive 40 points.
          • Chance
            • Your score in this category is the sum of the value of all the dice.
          • Yatzy
            • All five dice have the same number.
            • You receive 50 points.
            • Unlike in its more famous counterpart, there are no jokers or extra points when you repeat this combination in this game.
    • Tips
      • Always go for the highest values available whenever possible.
        • If you are forced to place a low value into a slot use one of the slots where you could not score many points no matter what, like the 1 or 2 slots at the top of the board.
      • Try to fill in most of the bottom half of the sheet as early as you can whenever you can.
        • If you earn a full house early on, lock it in.
        • Start saving for a Yatzy the moment you start getting three or more on the first roll.
        • If you get three or more identical numbers in a roll, consider placing them in under 3- or 4-of-a-kind. Their value will always be higher that their equivalent combinations in the upper section.
        • Save the chance for the middle or later in the game.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like competitive dice board games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
