Also known as Tops and Bottoms.  An interesting game that requires some thought and judgement for players to work out their final hand.  This game requires five dice.


Players take their turn rolling the dice and try to build the best possible Poker/Indian Dice hand (see below for hand rankings).  Players do this by repeatedly rolling the dice and setting aside at least one die, after each roll, for their final hand.  1s (Aces) are wild and can be used to represent any value.  The catch with this game is that each time the dice are rolled and at least one is set aside, one of the dice set aside must be turned upside down.  Once any dice have been set aside they may not be re-rolled.  The player with the highest ranked hand, after everyone has had their turn, wins the game.
