A Mexican dice game
Dice, coins or counters
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.
