8 Goals to achieve. Roll a die 28 times, each time you can assign the number you rolled to a free number slot beside one of the goals. If there is no free slot beside a goal, you have to put the number somewhere else. If you click to assign the number to a goal, but the number can not go there, then you waste the number, and move on to the next roll.

Once all 28 die rolls are made, and all numbers are assigned, the game adds up the values of each number you have assigned, to find your score. So, for "Two of a Kind" you would get twelve points for two 6's, and only two points for two 1's.

Goals to achieve:      Examples:

1. Single Score             (4)
2. Two of a Kind           (5, 5)
3. Two Pair                  (3, 3, 6, 6)
4. Three of a Kind         (4, 4, 4)
5. Four in a Row           (2, 3, 4, 5)
6. Four of a Kind           (3, 3, 3, 3)
7. Five in a row            (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
8. BLITZ!                     (3, 3, 3, 3, 3)

The best possible score gives you 148 points. That consists of all 6's, except for the four in a row, and the five in a row.

At the time of this publication, my high score was only 87 out of 148. See if you can beat me! Go for a high score!

Not bad. I think it would have been better if we didn't actually have to achieve the "in a row" numbers in order, and if we didn't have to do the pairs one and then the other.

My highest score was 82 (which I got twice actually).

I enjoyed this very much! I guess its because i know how much scripting went into this, the game is really good in terms of scripting features and its a creative idea! Im going to play it again ;)

Pretty fun and simple but strategic time-waster.

Not a story, but as a game it is interesting.

Well, this was quite the fun strategy game. I kept playing to try and improve my score. The highest I got was 102. I also liked how there was no way to cheat, since 'going back' resulted in the subsequent roll being different than it was initially, lol. Good work!

This is actually really fun. Killa already stated the things that I have problems with, but those things make it harder so I kind of like them. This nicely shows some cool things you can do with scripting on the site. My best score was 80, but I kept this one because haha funny sex number.

Not really much of a storygame, and it’s boring...

Now THIS is exactly what a short game should be!

After painfully trudging through a series of games with a play length of 1/8, (which all barely escaped the terrible games purge) I'm so happy to come across this little hidden gem again. No story, no plot, no characters... But an actual bloody game! (And a really enjoyable, well thought out and cleverly coded one at that.)

Only complaint is that I finished with a score of 152/148. (For the two pair roll, you can do two pairs of the same number. Might want to fix that, if you ever come back.) Other than that though, thank you for making the only 1/8 length game on the site that's actually worth playing! ^_^
