# solo DICE

A different dice game. Each throw calls for a new decision. From an idea by **Sid Sackson**.

# Rules

### Two Combinations and One Reject

The 5 dice are thrown and the player the divides the 5 numbers into two "combinations" of two dice each and one "reject". The two combinations are marked in the top columns and the rejects is marked in the bottom.

**For example**

The player throws a 1, 1, 2, 4 and 5.

One of the many ways in which can be divided is by combining a 1 and the 2 to make a total of 3, combining the 4 and the 5 to make a total of 9 and leaving a 1 as the reject.

### Only 3 Rejects

The player continuing in this manner, throwing the 5 dice and dividing them as he choose. He, however, is limited to 3 different reject numbers, and the player must divide the dice so as to have one of those 3 numbers as the reject.

If, after the reject numbers have been set, the player make a throw containing none of the three numbers, he gets a "free ride". He can choose any two combinations he wishes and ignore the fifth die.

**For example**

1,2 and 5 have been marked as the rejects. A throw made 1, 4, 4, 4 and 6. The player has no choice but to divide the dice 4 and 4, 4 and 6, with 1 as the reject.

### The Game Over

The player continues throwing the dice until one of the three reject numbers has 8 marks placed next to it. Play is then completed and the game is scored.

This is incredible. I love it. Simple, but complex. I've been playing with pen, paper, and dice.
