How to play Zilch? It is simple: 1. First roll the six dice: Some of your dice should be worth some points (if not, you will not score any point during this turn. It is called zilching. Keep in mind that you must score points when you roll some dice).

2. You must hold some scoring dice before you can roll the other dice. You must reach 300 points before you can consider taking points during a round, so roll and roll the active dice until this goal is reached. Then taking the points or rolling the dice is up to you...

3. To win the game you must reach 10,000 points (or score over 10,000 points AND have more points than your opponent).
