Each player starts his/her/its turn by rolling all six dice. From this roll, any/all of the scoring possibilities may be 'held', and the remainder rolled again. If all six of the dice become 'held', then all six may be rolled again. This continues until the player decides to keep the points gathered so far and pass the dice to the next player, or until no scoring combinations are rolled. Any points for that turn when a player decides to stop rolling, with a scoring combination, are added to the score. Any points for that turn when a player has no scoring combinations, however, are lost. At the beginning of play, each player must score 1000 points in order to get 'on the board'.
When a player finally does go over the 'game score' (10,000 points) and passes the dice to the next player, each of the other players gets a final chance to beat that score (or whichever one is currently the highest). Thus the first one done does not necessarily win, and you must judge how far over the 'game' score is safe to stop at.
Single 1 (1 2 2 3 4 6) 100 points.
Other singles - Not counted
When more than three of a set are held, and a matching fourth is rolled, the players total, up to that point in that round, is doubled. If a matching fifth is rolled the total is doubled again.
Therefor Six 2s (222222) would be 1600 points.
Six dice straight (123456) rolled simultaneous 1500 points.
All dice in a roll can be scored. Thus, a roll of (1 4 2 4 4 5) would score:
The player here could keep all but the 2 and roll again.
If he then would roll a1 it would add 100 points and he would continue to play.
If he then would roll a4, his score would double to 1,100 points and he would continue
If he rolled a5, he would add 50 points and continue to play.
If he rolled any other number, he would not have any scoring combination for that roll
and he would forfeit all points scored during that round. And the play would be passed
to the next player.
Of course, you could keep the one, or the five, or the three fours, or any combination. But you must keep something to be able to roll again
A roll of (1 5 1 5 5 1) would score:
and...you would be able to roll all of the dice again.
