Explanation:
The name of a game whose object is to make the highest score possible at the roll of five dice. Each die has the following six faces: 7 (shown as small black dots), 8 (shown as small red dots), Jack, Queen, King, and Ace (shown as a single large red dot). During a play, a player has three chances to roll five of the chosen suit, the highest being the Aces. I own a set of these dice, and this is one of my favorite games to play. Please let me know if you would like to learn more about the game; it is great fun!

Play on,
