Run for it! You will need six dice for this game. Roll dice and look for runs (sequences) starting with 1 (so 1, 1-2, 1-2-3 and so on). Each die that is part of a run scores five points. There can be more than one run in each roll. For example, say you rolled following combination: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 and 5. You would score 5 points for first 1. You would then score 15 points for sequence of 1, 2 and 3, for a total of 20 points for that roll. The first player to reach 100 points is winner.
Going to Boston Use three dice. Roll all three and keep highest. Roll remaining dice and again set aside highest. Roll last die, and add up your total. Write down your score. Play a number of rounds and then either total your points to find winner, or simply count how many rounds were won by each player.
