Poker Dice

The complete rules for the dice game Poker Dice

By

Poker Dice is a simple, straight-forward -- and fun -- dice game.

Players

2 or more players, best with 2 to 5 players.

Equipment

Five standard six-sided dice.

Goal

To roll the best Poker hand.

Gameplay

Each player has three rolls. On the first roll, she rolls all five dice. She may then set aside any number of dice (including zero) and re-roll the remainder.

After the second roll, she may once again set aside any number of dice and re-roll the remainder.

Once dice are set aside, they may not be re-rolled. A player is not required to make a second or third roll.

Hand Ranks

The possible hands are ranked as follows:

  • Five of a kind, e.g. 4-4-4-4-4
  • Four of a kind, e.g. 2-2-2-2-6
  • Full house, e.g. 6-6-6-1-1
  • Three of a kind, e.g. 5-5-5-2-1
  • Two pairs, e.g. 3-3-2-2-4
  • One pair, e.g. 4-4-5-3-1
  • High card, e.g. 6-5-4-3-2

Straights do not count in this game.

If two players claim the same hand, ties are broken in the same manner as in Poker.

Winning

The player with the best Poker hand wins.

Sometimes, the game is played to see who will pick up the tab in a restaurant. In that case, the player with the worst hand pays the bill.
