The Game:
Roll One

Click on "Roll One" to throw your first die in order to determine who bids first.
Sit Out

You may select the "Sit Out" button to sit out of an entire game.
The player who throws the highest number goes first. If the outcome of the dice is the same, the dice must be rolled again. The direction of play is clockwise.

Roll All

To begin, click on the "Roll All" butoon. All five of your dice will be rolled, and a wager of the table's Stake will be entered to the Pot (the table's total amount of cash).


Fold

Bidding:
To enter a bid choose the Die Face and its Quantity from the menu.

There are 6 die face values possible:
1 2 3 4 5 6 A A = 1 or joker

There are 25 quantity values possible:
Quantity Bar

When you select a die face, the selected die face will be highlighted. When you select a quantity the selected quantity will be checked off, as you can see in the picture on the right:

When bidding, you are claiming that there is at least a certain quantity of dice face values on the table, including in the dice of your opponents.
Bidding Bar
In the image, we selected a Die Face of 5 with a Quantity of 6. It means that we bid that the total occurrences on the table of the die with a face value of 5 are at least 6.

Bid
After you have selected your desired bid, click on the "Bid" button.

The next player and every subsequent player in a round can choose to bid on the same die face or on another die face.

Whether they choose to bid on the same die face or a lower die face, they must bid on a higher quantity of the die face.

If they choose to bid on a higher die face, they can leave the quantity as is.


For example if the person before you bids: Six Fives (Six-Quantity, Fives- Dice Face).
You can bid: Six Sixes, Seven Fours, Eight Fives, Nine Threes, Seven Threes, Eight Twos etc except for ace which will be explained later.

Exceptions:
  • You cannot start the round with a bid on an Ace/Joker/Die Face value of       1, except for in a Calzone Round. (read more about Calzone below).


  • If the previous bid is on any face besides an Ace/Joker/ Die Face value of
       1, and you wish to bid on an Ace, then your bid quantity can be half the
       quantity of the previous bid quantity or higher. (in the case of a
       halfnumber the number is rounded up) For example: previous bid is 4 x 5,
       you must bid A x 3 or a higher quantity. Except for in a Calzone Round.
       (read more about Calzone below).


  • If the previous bid is on an Ace/Joker Die Face value of 1, and you wish
       to bid on any face value besides Ace, then your bid quantity should be at
       least twice the previous bid quantity plus one,or higher. For example
       previous bid is A x 5, your bid quantity must be 11, or a higher quantity.
       Except for in a Calzone Round. (read more about Calzone below).

  • Calling Perudo:
    Perudo

    If you wish to call a bluff on the previous player, claiming that the total Quantity of the Die Face on the table is less than his bid, then click, (or call), Perudo.

    If you call Perudo and you're right (meaning the previous player has over estimated the Quantity of the Die Face), your Perudo is called a "good perudo"), you keep all of your dice, and the current bidder loses a die.

    If you call Perudo, and you're wrong (meaning that the current bidder estimated the exact or higher Quantity of the Die Face), your Perudo is called a "bad perudo" (wrong), and you lose a die.

    The person who lost a die in the last round always goes first in the next round, unless he has lost all of his dice. With one exception, if a player is struck-out (lost all of his dice) then the player who struck him out will start bidding on the next round.

    Calling Jonti:
    Jonti

    Calling Jonti means that you are claiming that the current bid is exactly right.

    You have the option of calling Jonti only when itís not your bid or the bid of the player after you. (For this to be true there must be a minimum of 3 players at the table).

    You may only call Jonti when you have less than five dice.

    If you call Jonti and you are correct, you keep all of your dice and gain one more die.
    If you call Jonti, and you are not correct, you lose a die.

    Calzone Round:
    Calzone Round

    When a player has only one die remaining after losing a die in the previous round, they may call Calzone. Calzone rounds are subject to different rules:

  • Aces are not wild, they hold a value of one (Calzone Rounds may begin
        bidding on 1).


  • Calzone is called before any bids are made and calling Calzone is
        optional.


  • Only players who have one die can make a regular bid, player with more
        than one die can only change the quantity, they cannot change the face
        value.
