5 Roll

5 Roll is a game similar to Yahtzee. However, unlike Yahtzee, the 5 Roll app does not include other players. As the name of the game suggests, in 5 Roll, the player needs to roll five dices, after which they need to decide which dice they want to keep and which the players want to re-roll. While playing 5 Roll, it is important to fill the scorecard strategically to maximize the score after each roll. Even though the numbers which will appear on the dice after rolling is a matter of luck, deciding whether to keep a score or re-roll the dice requires proper planning and thinking by the player. It is a game of both luck and skills. 

How to Play 5 Roll?

For playing 5 Roll, the player needs to roll the dices. Per turn, the player can roll up to a maximum of three dices. The aim of the player while rolling the dice is to get the highest combination of the score for one of the 13 different categories. For rolling dice in 5 Roll, click on the “Roll” button, which is present in the left corner of the game screen. Further, the rolled dice can be moves into the dice holder simply by clicking on it. The dice which is held cannot further be re-rolled. If the player wishes to re-roll the dice at any point in the game, the player can click on the held dice to return it to the playing area again. If the rolled dice belongs to the same colour, the player gets to choose to roll a multiplier dice, the cost of which are the remaining re-rolls. The multiplier options available in 5 Roll are no multiplier, 2X and 3X.

The box should be filled in a manner that can fetch the player the highest score possible. Each category can be filled with 1x, 2x and 3x score multiplier, and hence, it needs to be decided logically. The game also involves risk in a manner that the player has the option of entering either zero or the score in the 42 boxes available in order to win. It depends upon the player whether they want to enter the score right away or risk waiting for a higher roll. Scores of common kinds are depicted below:
