Description

A Mexican dice game

Dice, coins or counters

Instructions

The game is traditionally played with a pirinola which is a six-sided top with instructions on each side. We substituted a dice.

Each player is given an equal number of coins or counters and everybody places one in the centre. Players then take turns to shake the dice and follow the instructions:

1 = put one coin in the middle
2 = put two coins in the middle
3 = pick up one coin from the middle
4 = pick up two coins from the middle
5 = everybody puts a coin in the middle
6 = player takes all the coins

The winner is the person who has the most coins at the end of the game.
