Each time the dice are rolled, you may choose which dice
you'd like to keep, and which dice you'd like to re-roll. Clicking on
a die will lock it in place so when the roll button is pressed, it will
not be re-rolled. You may re-roll the dice up to two times before selecting
a category to place the dice in.
To place the dice in a category, just click in an unscored
box in one of the three score cards. When the score is placed, the dice
will be automatically re-rolled. Continue rolling the dice and filling
in the score cards until all of the categories are scored.
The scoring categories are:
|ONES - Total of all 1s
||3 Alike - Total of all dice (at least 3 dice must match)
|TWOS - Total of all 2s
||4 Alike - Total of all dice (at least 4 dice must match)
|THREES - Total of all 3s
||5 Alike (Dice Mania) - all 5 dice must match (50 points)
|FOURS - Total of all 4s
||Full House - 3 of one value, 2 of another (25 points)
|FIVES - Total of all 5s
||Small Straight - 4 dice in consecutive order (30 points)
|SIXES - Total of all 6s
||Large Straight - 5 dice in consecutive order (40 points)
||Free - No Requirements (Total of all dice)
If you place dice in a category where the requirements are
not met, you will receive a score of 0 for that category. A bonus of 35
points will be awarded if the total in the left hand column of a score
card is greater than 63. You will also recieve a 100 point Mania Bonus
for each additional 5 Alike you are able to place in another category
after having completed the 5 Alike category on each score card.
The first score card's points are multiplied by 100, the
second score card's by 200 and the third by 300. Therefore it is good
strategy to place your best rolls on the third score card.
