5 Dice Screen Shots


The goal of 5 Dice is to get as many points as possible by rolling combinations of five dice. You can roll up to three times, possibly choosing to just roll some of the dice each time. After you roll, you choose which slot to score based on the combination rolled. Different combinations of dice earn points differently. If you don't meet the requirements for the combination you choose, you still have to score it on the score card. The game ends when you have filled in all the slots on the score card.

When the text on the [Roll] button is highlighted in red, it means rolls are active.
When the text on the [Roll] button is highlighted in black, you have completed three rolls.
When the text 'hold' is highlighted in Red, it means you can hold a combination of dice for your next roll.


*On the Upper part of the score card, you have ones and two's.  These combinations are not going to gain you many points, so try and achieve a higher scoring combination, if it fails you can select one's or two's to give you some leeway.

*On the Lower part of the score card, Five dice is also good as it's hard to achieve.
