"Two dice PIG" rules and scores: playing a game

Icono jugador

FIRST TURN

The player whose turn it is rolls the dice repeatedly and adds up the points obtained in each roll until one of these things happens:

1

icon-happy

The player stands, doesn’t keep rolling the dice, and adds the points earned in that turn to their overall score.

2

icon-loose

If a 1 is rolled on one die and a number other than 1 on the other, the player loses all the sum of that turn, i.e., he adds nothing that turn to his overall score.

3

icon-angry

If two 1’s are rolled, the player loses everything won up to that moment in all the previous turns, his global score remains at zero.

4

icon-oops

If any other double result is obtained (2-2, 3-3…) the player adds up the points as usual but will be obliged to roll the dice again, at which point he cannot stand up.

NEXT TURNS

The next player proceeds the same way, and so on until everyone has had their turn and a round is completed.

GAME OVER

The round in which any player reaches 100 points is the last round of the game, but all players must exercise their turn in that last round, so the first player to reach 100 is not necessarily the winner of the game.

AND THE WINNER IS...

A game of BIG PIG ends when in a round one of the players exceeds 100 points being the winner the player who has more points when that last round ends.
