One player tosses the dice in a bowl.
The dice will be star side up, X side up, or blank side up.
Score as follows
All blanks = 1 point
2X’s (and a combination of blanks and stars on the other dice) = 3 points
3 stars (and a combination of blanks and Xs on the other dice) = 3 points
5 marked sides up = 8 points
Anything else = 0 points
The player who rolled the dice takes a number of sticks equal to the number of points he scored.
The second player rolls and is scored just as the first player was.
When all of the sticks are gone, each player counts his sticks.
Whoever has the most sticks wins.
