Be a winner in the game of dice

So there is not much to do here except

Snowboard.Eat.Sleep. Repeat.

However the couple that we sit next to at dinner introduced us to a funny little dice game. We have now played this game two nights in a row and it has certainly made the last part of the evening pass quickly. I have managed to win one game and lose two! But it is much fun.

A paltry score of 50

 

 

Some of the basic rules…

The aim is to get to 10 0000.

Any die that shows ‘1’ is worth 100 points

Any die that shows ‘5’ is worth 50 points

A Three-of-a-Kind is worth a hundred times the number on the dice, with the exception of three ‘1’s, which is worth 1000 points.

Any additional matching numbers past three of a kind double the point worth (i.e. 4+4+4=400 while 4+4+4+4=800).

Three pairs is worth 1000 points.

A five-dice straight (1+2+3+4+5 or 2+3+4+5+6) is worth 500 points.

A six-dice straight (1+2+3+4+5+6) is worth 1500 points.

A six-of-a-kind of 1’s automatically wins!

The rest of the rules are explained
