Taking a turn

On your turn, you may roll the dice up to 3 times, although you may stop and score after your first or second roll. To roll the dice, just press the Roll button next to the dices. First roll: Roll all 6 dice. Set any "keepers" aside. You may stop and score now, or roll again. Second roll: Reroll ANY or ALL dice you want — even "keepers" from the previous roll. You don't need to declare which combination you're rolling for; you may change your mind after any roll. You may stop and score after your second roll, or set aside any "keepers" and roll a third time. Third and final roll: Reroll ANY or ALL dice you want. After your third roll, you must fill in a box on your score card with a score or a zero. After you fill in a box, your turn is over.
