At the beginning of play narrow sticks and flat sticks are placed in a central pile. Players take turns tossing the dice into the air by gently thumping the bowl on the ground. The score depends on how the dice land in the bowl.

These are the designs carved into each side of the dice:

For each successful toss of the dice you are awarded counting sticks.

Players normally take turns casting dice until all of the counters are used up. The last stick to be awarded is the "Crooked stick". However in this version of the game, players should decide to play to a specific score, say 50 or 100.

You will find out what you awarded with each toss of the dice, but it up to you to keep track of your cumulative scores!
