EIGHT Free Dice Board Game

Quick Rules

1. Roll All Eight Dice

2. Look for straights. Decide if you wish to use the straight. If so, straight dice are set aside. Scoring a straight requires that you roll again.

3. Next, pull out any Sets (X of a Kind) or Pairs. You must use all sets and pairs. Scoring any set or pair requires that you roll again.
• Point dice rolled in Pairs are scored normally (not negative), but still require another roll.
• Point dice rolled as Sets follow all Set rules and require another roll.

4. Pull out & set aside all point dice (5, 10, 20). You must use all point dice rolled.

• The WILD symbol can be used as any value in a straight. If not used in a straight, it must match the largest set or pair. Otherwise it may be 20 pts or a non scoring value.

5. If you scored any Straight, Set or Pair, you must roll the remaining dice again. If you scored and used all eight dice, you must roll all eight dice again.

6. Banking
If you rolled only point dice, did not roll any straight, pair or set, and did not use all eight dice, you may stop, bank accumulated points, & end your turn.

7. Fail
If you roll any amount of dice that result in no points being scored (No straight, Set, Pair, or Point Dice), you lose all accumulated points and your turn.

8. Play to 1000 points.


Strategy:

- Recognize the percentages. When you have to roll only one die, there is only a 37.5% chance of rolling a point value (3 out of 8). 62.5% of the time you will fail.
- When rolling only one dice, even if you do roll a point value, you will have now used all eight dice and will have to continue rolling(Crazy Eight rule).
- When rolling two dice, you will only fail 31% of the time. 47% of the time you will roll one point die and one non scoring die allowing you the option to bank your points and stop or let it ride and keep rolling. 22% of the time you will roll a pair or 2 point dice requiring you to roll again (Crazy Eight rule).
- When rolling 3 dice, the chances of being able to stop are 61%, and failing is less than 12%. The remaining 27% of the time you will have to roll again.
- Clearly the is a huge advantage in having more dice to roll. The more dice you are rolling the smaller the chance you will fail and the greater the chance you will be able to stop and bank points.
- Chopping straights is one of the best ways to create more dice to roll. If you have a 5 or 6 straight, consider chopping off an end if possible to create a smaller straight but allowing more dice to be rolled. You lose some potential points but increase the chance you will be able to bank them.
- Another way to create more dice or to create a stopping point is to manipulate the WILD die. When rolling 2 dice or more dice and one is the WILD, remember that a WILD must match a pair or set, but if neither is present the WILD can be taken as 20 pts or changed to any value. If you rolled 2 dice any rolled a point die and the WILD, you may want to change the WILD into a non-scoring value. This now allows you to stop and bank points as opposed to having to roll again because you used all eight dice.

Is everything wrong with this game The rules of the game says that the symbols has no value so why they can score huh? And why the negative points are automaticly banked. And the annoying possible straight but there's no straight. And why I cannot select the possible straight when the dice is not in order! Could be the dice is not rolled in the bowl? But in slots you can arrange the dice in the real game you know. Please fix it.

Yahtzee meets Cant Stop in ancient China Eight is a nice Yahtzee variant with Can't Stop like baking and telling. The basic ruling is good enough to be enjoyable for any dice game fan, and the advanced features make this easy to recommend.

Droid x2 Works great on kindle fire;however, the game is poorly executed. The time limit continues even if in "explanation" menus, and there is no tutorial. The game is too complex not to have one. Also, all you get is a flickering screen on the Droid x2.
