How To Play

The yacht dice game can be played by one player but is more fun against at least one other player or against the computer.

It is played using five six-sided dice and the goal is to score a higher total number of points than your opponents.

You start your turn by rolling all the dice. You either bank a set of points (see below) or reroll as many of the dice as you wish. To only reroll some of your dice click on the dice that you wish to keep so that the anchor appears and then click the Roll button. You can roll up to three times per turn.

If a player is not able to bank a set of points they must bank a set of zero points.

After 13 turns the player with the highest score wins.
