How to set-up

1. Everybody takes 1 dice cup and a set of 5 dice, all the same colour. Determine who starts by rolling one die.

2. Highest roll calls first, then proceed clockwise around the table.

How to play

1. All players simultaneously shake their dice then up end their cups on the table with the cup covering all their dice.

2. Each player then secretly looks at the dice they have rolled, using the cup to conceal them from other players.

3. Then, the first player says how many dice are showing - at a minimum - a certain number.

4. For example, "five threes", meaning there are at least 5 dice showing a three, which can be true or fiction.

5. Then the player tells the next player to raise, call or spot on the announcment.

6. Raise: If the player wants to increase, he or she increases the number of dice (e.g. from "five threes" to "six threes") or the die number.

7. Call: If the player calls, it means that they do not buy or believe the correctness of the previous bid.

8. The dice are shown and, if the guess is not correct, the previous player loses a die.

9. If it is correct, the player who doubted loses a die. A player with no dice remaining is eliminated from the game.

10. Spot On: If the number is higher or lower, the player loses to the previous bidder, but if they are correct, they win.

How to win

1. A player with no dice remaining is eliminated from the game.

2. The game continues until one player remains with dice.
