THE GAME,

Object:  To  have the highest score after 5000 points are  reached 
and every player has had their turn.

Play:  Each  player  rolls five dice in  turn.  The  players  turn 
continues  until that  player goes " bust " or ends  his  turn.  A 
player is not able to end his own turn until he is open.
The  computer  rolls the initial five dice at the  start  of  each 
turn.
     After  a roll the player can select which dice they will  put 
aside ( by clicking on that die )and then roll the remaining dice.
Dice  selected  must have a point value,  and you must  select  at 
least one , but you may select as many more as you wish.
Click  on  the roll box to roll the dice or the undo  box  if  you 
change your mind.
     A players turn is ended by clicking anywhere in the scorepad
( the left hand box ) after he is open.  To get open you must have 
500 points.  The points are figured out by adding the two boxes in 
the  lower  section  of  the playbox " Points  in  roll  "  and  " 
Temporary  points  "  these boxes are  automaticly  added  to  the 
players score.When a player goes "bust" ( has no dice that have  a 
point value ) they lose all temporary points they have obtained in 
that turn.

POINT VALUE:
ONES = 100     THREE ONES = 1000
TWOS = 0       THREE TWOS = 200
THREES = 0     THREE THREES = 300
FOURS = 0      THREE FOURS = 400
FIVES = 50     THREE FIVES =500
SIXES = 0      THREE SIXES = 600
STRAIGHT ( ONE, TWO , THREE, FOUR, FIVE ONLY  !!!) = 1500 POINTS






STARTING THE GAME:
     TITLE SCREEN,  click on the right mouse button or any key  to 
start  the game,  otherwise you'll have to wait for a rather  long 
time.
     DIALOG BOXES,  The first dialog box that greets you asks  for 
the number of players and if you want to play "Bob"( the  computer 
).  Note that you can only play against the computer if there  are 
less  than ten players.The next box(es) that come up allow you  to 
enter  your name if you want.After your done with these  the  game 
starts.  I reccomend that you play against the computer to get the 
feel of the game.      

QUITTING:
     To  quit the game during play press the escape button  during 
any players turn except the computers.You will bring up a varying
number of alert boxes depending on your actions.

ENJOY
     MICHAEL L. MORGAN
