Rules of the game : Dice Poker

Objective of the Game

The object of the game is to obtain the highest score from throwing 5 dices.
The game consists of 13 rounds. In each round, you roll the dice and then score the roll in one of 13 categories.
The 13 categories are shown on the gaming page, and are explained a bit further.
You must score once in each category. The score is determined by a different rule for each category.
The game ends once all 13 categories have been scored.

How to play

At your turn, all the 5 dics are rolled. Depending on which combination you're trying to achieve, you can select the dices of your choice and re-roll them.
You can do this max. twice.
You may score the dice at any point in the round, i.e. it doesn't have to be after the 3rd roll.
To score your combination of 5 dices,click on one of the 13 boxes. Available boxes are in light green.
Once the box clicked, your score is immediately displayed and the total recalculated.
To validate the score, click on 'submit' button. You can also cancel the move by clicking on the 'Cancel' button. If you wish to try a different box, you can also simply click on it and the system will cancel your previous try and display the new move at once, without you having to click the 'cancel' button.

Scoring board : Upper section

If you score in the upper section of the table, your score is the total of the specified die face.
For instance, if your dices are 5-2-5-6-5 and you click on 'FIVES' category, the score in this box will be 15 (3 dices with 5).
If 'ONES', 'THREES' or 'FOURS' categories were selected for scoring with this roll, you would score a zero.
If placed in the Two or Six category, you would score 2 and 6 respectively.

You get a bonus of 35 points if the total of Upper scores is 63 or more.
Note that 63 is the total of three each of 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s and 6s.
