Since the advent of electronic versions of the game, more and more alternative rules have surfaced.
One of the common new rules is: if you roll 4 of a kind, your score doubles. So, it would break down like this if you were rolling Fives:
- 3 Fives = 500
- 4 Fives = 1000
- 5 Fives = 2000
- 6 Fives = 4000
Some people play that 3 pair = 750
Some people play that a straight = 1500
We are purists and play by the original rules, but many people like to break the rules now days. In fact, I’ve heard that some people don’t use 6 Wooden Dice or even eat Tostitos® Chips and salsa while they play. Can you believe that? Wow!
