Turn the golden rule into gold. Help out others for a chance to score big.
Make blocks of cards to score points, or you can add onto others’ blocks to score points for both of you and grab dice. These dice are tickets for the end-of-round lottery where they can score even more points.
Do you have the right dice?
The more you help out others, the more chances you’ll have to hit it big. Most points after 3 rounds wins!
Thanks a Lottery is a rummy-ish game of selfish motiviation for 2–6 players.
Score the most points over 3 rounds to win. You’ll score points by:
You’ll get a new hand of 6 cards to each players to start the round. You’ll also roll all 15 dice to make the round’s dice pool. These dice are tickets for the lottery at the end of the round.
Take turns drawing a card, then trying to score points. To start, all you can do is play a block in front of yourself.
A block is 3 or more cards that are either sequential or identical.
Use wild cards in place of another card. You can only use 1 wild per block, and you can only play them in your own blocks.
Once you play a block for yourself, future turns give you more options:
Which dice do you take from the dice pool? Do you load up on the same dice to go for a windfall, or do you take some of each to spread your chances?
Keep taking turns until someone either:
Turns then stop and everyone has the option of re-rolling any of their dice 1 time. From there, it’s time to hold the lottery.
Shake up the 8 tokens in the tin, then draw 3 at random. As you draw tokens, place them on the round’s prize card. All matching dice score the points shown.
But hang on… some of those tokens aren’t dice. The token with a gray x on it means no dice score these points. The token with a red 7 on it means that all dice score these points.
Your score this round goes like this:
This is your total for the round.
If this was Round 1 or Round 2, write down your score and start a new round. Whoever caused the end of the round deals next time.
Otherwise, add up your scores from all 3 rounds, and whoever has the most points wins!
