A popular game is 421 which takes place mainly at the counter of pubs to know which is going to buy the next round of drinks.
This version of 421 allows to play several (up to 4 players) or against the computer.
Rules of the game:
The purpose of the game is to have no more tokens.
The game is played in 2 phases :
- Loading phase: There is 21 tokens to distribute. Each players rolls dice in one shot and the player who made the worst figure receives a number of tokens equal to points of best figure. When there are no more tokens to distribute, we go on second phase.
- Unloading phase: Each player can roll the dice up to 3 times. He can keep what dice he wants to make better figure. It's the first player of the round who force the number of rolls for the other players. If the first player decide to mark his figure before 3 rolls, the other players will roll dice many times as the first player.
