Game description

Basically, this dicing game works on the same principal as the better-known card game: The participants have to try to reach a number between 17 - 21. The one who comes closest to the number 21 wins the game. The participants can cast their dice as many times as they want and decide for themselves when to stop. However, who does not reach 17 or casts more than 21 points will be eliminated from the game. The main difference to the card game: With the dice, the entire group can participate in counting the number while the numbers are hidden in the card game until the very end.


To increase the excitement, the participants can play for symbolic values, rather than just for points.


The winner is who collected the most points. The winner of the tournament is the one who has won most of the games.
