Par is a dice game.
What you need to play
- 5 dice
- Chips, tokens or coins.
Object of the game To score more then 24 with five dice and eventually collect everyones chips/tokens.
How to play the game A player rolls all five dice, if the score is above 24 everyone pays them a token for every point above 24. For example: if they roll 26 they would receive 2 tokens from each player.
If a player rolls less or equal to 24 he may put side one or more dice and rolla the remainder. The dice that he puts aside cannot be rolled again and you have to put at least one die aside to roll the remaining dice.
If a player rolls less then 25 after he has set sides all his dice, he pays the other player for every point below 24. For example: A player rolls 20 he pays 4 tokens to each player. If a player can not pay out everyone, he hands out one token at a time to everyone starting with the player on his right. If a player has no tokens he is out of the game.
