The game requires at least two players and is recommended for ages 9 and up.

Each player starts their turn by turning over a Draw card, which should be shuffled and set in the middle of the play area prior to the start of the game. Draw cards have a variety of effects, from taking away the player's turn to allowing them to remove points from another player or multiplying any points they score.

If it is advantageous to the player, they may then roll the dice. Players get points for rolling ones, fives, any triples, or a 1-2-3-4-5-6 straight. Scoring dice are then set aside, and the player can choose to roll the remaining dice again for more points or end their turn with the points they have already won. If the player rolls without scoring, they have hit a bust and lose all points that they scored in that turn. Play then moves clockwise to the next player. The first player to reach the points total wins the game.
