Threes

Also known as Tripps.  This is a simple gambling game, played with five dice.  A popular street game played makeshift in alleyways or living rooms.

Play:

Each player antes one betting unit (usually a dollar, pound, euro, etc) into the pot and they then take it in turn throwing the dice.  The object of the game is to score the lowest total amount by adding up the spot values of all five set aside dice but counting 3s as zeroes.

Each player has up to five rolls of the dice, but must set at least one aside after each throw.   Once a dice is set aside, it may not be rolled again.

The best possible score after all the dice have been set aside is 0 (3-3-3-3-3), but should any player roll 6-6-6-6-6 ("Shooting the Moon"), they win instantly with no further play

In the event of equally low scores, tied players ante an additional unit into the pot and play again.

The winner takes the pot and rolls first in the next game.
