The game consists of several turns. Each round consists of two throws.

The first throw is made by choosing Throw on the touch screen. Once this first roll is made, you can choose the value you want to keep, via the small dice at the bottom of the screen. The red dice are blocked while the green dice will be re-rolled on the second roll.

You then perform the second throw by choosing Raise then Throw. The unblocked dice then get a new value.

After that choose among two pages (accessible via the small arrows) the score you want to fill. If it does not match the combination, then the score is set to zero. The game is finished once all the scores on both pages are completed.

The M icon provides access to a menu during the game.
