EIGHT Quick Rules

1.Roll All Eight Dice

2.Look for straights. Decide if you wish to use the straight. If so, straight dice are set aside. Scoring a straight requires that you roll again.

3.Next, pull out any Sets (X of a Kind) or Pairs. You must use all sets and pairs. Scoring any set or pair requires that you roll again.
•Point dice rolled in Pairs are scored normally (not negative), but still require another roll.
•Point dice rolled as Sets follow all Set rules and require another roll.

4.Pull out & set aside all point dice (5, 10, 20). You must use all point dice rolled.

•The WILD symbol can be used as any value in a straight. If not used in a straight, it must match the largest set or pair. Otherwise it may be 20 pts or a non scoring value.

5.If you scored any Straight, Set or Pair, you must roll the remaining dice again. If you scored and used all eight dice, you must roll all eight dice again.

6.Banking
If you rolled only point dice, did not roll any straight, pair or set, and did not use all eight dice, you may stop, bank accumulated points, & end your turn.

7.Fail
If you roll any amount of dice that result in no points being scored (No straight, Set, Pair, or Point Dice), you lose all accumulated points and your turn.

8.Play to 1000 points.
