Takes a bit to catch onto, but once understood, quite a competitive game. Requires people, beer and dice. Mid buzz factor.
Someone arbitrarily goes first by rolling the dice. The score for the dice is as follows:
The starter has the choice of one, two of three rolls to obtain the best score they can. The starter's score is the score of their last throw i.e., if you throw a 61 then 63 with your first two throws and elect to take a third throw, you must count the third throw even if it's lower. Every other player in the game has the choice of throwing up to as many times as the starter i.e., if the starter takes one throw, all other players have only one throw.
Holding a dice - if a player has more than one throw available, they may hold a 1 or a 2 (if thrown) for subsequent throws i.e., if you have 2 or 3 throws and you throw a 4:1 on your first go, you may, if you wish, only pick up the 4 and throw it as your next go. This tactic will increase your chance of a mexican, while also increasing your chance of a low score or scumbag. If you throw a scumbag you may not hold the 1.
The loser is the person who throws the lowest score. In the event of a tie, all players with the lowest score must roll one dice and the lowest number loses.
Play as many rounds as desired.
