Example game play
Player one rolls 6,1,2,4,5,5 and discards 6,1 = 7 and 5,2 = 7 and is left with 4,5 for a score of 9. He decides to roll again. Player one rolls the dice for a second time 6,6,6,1,2,5 and discards 6,1 = 7 and 2,5 = 7 and is left with 6,6 for a total of 12. He decides to keep this score.
Player two rolls 6,6,2,2,4,4 and discards nothing because he can not make any 7s with his roll. His score is 24. He decides to keep this score.
At the end of the first round player one has 12 and player two has a score of 24.
