PokerDice is a dice game inspired by the rules of the game of Poker. Every player has 3 throws to make the best possible combination. In every throw, he chooses to keep or not dice before relaunching the remaining dice. Once kept, a die cannot be replayed. When all the players realized their throws, the player having made the strongest combination takes gains the round and every player gives 1 token to all the players whose combination is superior to his. If a player does not have a token anymore, he is removed from the game and the remaining players continue to play. The player having managed to take all the tokens of all other players is declared victorious of the game.
A game can happen in several or against the computer. You can also invite friends to come to play with you online by using Game Center.
The possible combinations are (from strongest to lowest):
Poker ( 5 identical dice)
Four of a kind ( 4 identical dice)
Straight to Ace (Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10)
Straight to King (King, Queen, Jack, 10,9)
Full house (3 identical dice + 2 identical dice)
Three of a kind ( 3 identical dice)
2 pairs (2x2 identical dice)
1 pair ( 2 identical dice)
For 2 combinations of the same type, it's the value of the dice that makes the difference: Ace is the strongest, then King, Queen, Jack, 10 and finally 9 the lowest value.
The player who wins the round becomes the first player of the following round.
