How to play

Both players roll five dice keeping them concealed under their dice cups.

The first caller proposes a game from the chart below. The other player may accept or refuse .

If the player refuses the game the other player must propose a game of a different game type number. For example if the first game proposed was Two Ten for high score, the next game proposed could be liars dice.  The player could not propose Three Ten for high score as the replacement for the first game of Two Ten for high score because they are from the same game type( game type 8).

When the player accepts the game or  a second game is proposed, the player who proposed the game reveals his or her dice. They may re roll as many times as the game allows.

After the player who proposed the game has finished rolling, the other player reveals his or her dice and rolls. The other player may roll as many as the game allows to beat the score of the other player.

The winning player scores a point.

The players roll as they did in the begining  , and the losing player proposes the the next game.

The first player to score three points wins the game.
