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
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
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
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.
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.
