Our Version of PIG
(not sure why it is called that!)
An Easy Game of Dice - Best with 2,
but can be played with up to four players.
You will need... 2 Dice, Paper and pen for scoring.
Goal... Be the first player to reach 100 points.
How to Play... Each player in turn throws the two dice together. He has three throws. He adds his points together as he goes.
If a 1 is rolled, that player's turn ends and no points are earned. If after one or two throws he decides to "hold" (rather than risk a 1 on his next throw and losing all his points) he keeps his score and passes the dice onto the next player.
Example 1: Peter rolls a 3 and a 4 and decides to continue. He then rolls a 6 and a 1. Because he rolled a 1, Peter's turn ends and he earns 0 points.
Example 2: Jack rolls a 6 and a 2 and decides to continue. He then rolls a 6 and a 5 and decides to "hold". Jack scores 19 points.
