To roll again, a player must set aside at least 1 scoring dice from their first roll. When they roll again they will lose any points they don’t set aside. Players may roll again as long as they put aside at least 1 scoring dice after each roll. If a player rolls and does not score any points, they lose all of their points for that turn, and their turn is over. Then, the player rolls to his left. Players keep rolling and rolling the dice until one player reaches 10,000 points first and wins! Read on to find out how each combination is scored!
