Years ago, [no I'm not telling you how many years ago, can't a girl have any secrets?] I played this game with 6 dice and a puzzle box top to keep them together when we rolled...and a piece of paper and someone who could add and concentrate! Finally, it has come to my computer, and there is no need for anyone concentrating, adding or taking off their shoes!

You can play against 1 to 5 computer opponents, or you can play a Local game or host a game. You can also turn on or off the rule that 3 2's equals zero, and change the amount of the endgame from either 20,000, 10,000, or 5,000.

Scoring is 1's or 5's or 3 of a kind or a natural straight. You can roll as long as you want or quit whenever you want, but if you don't score something with each roll you not only lose your turn, but all you have rolled that turn. The only exception to this rule is in the very beginning, when you must have 500 points to start moving along. The game keeps track of more details than you probably want, which means don't be surprised if ya see the little ones playing.

This is a 30 day evaluation copy, the registered version enables Network Multi-Player support and removes the startup delay. Check it out-it's fun!
