How to play the Danish dice game ”Grådige” or ”Greedy”

how to play the danish dice grame Greedy with schnapps

Greedy is a high score dice game in which players roll dice for points. As well as being a  fantastic after dinner game, it is also great for travel or holidays as  you only need a few dice in your pocket, paper and a pen (and it’s fabulous for kids who need to practise their maths!). You roll 5 dice, move aside only the dice you want to use for points, then re-roll the remaining dice. If you can make all 5 dice count for score, pick them all up and keep rolling (if you’re feeling lucky.) Your points can accumulate as long as you keep scoring. If none of the dice you roll can count for score, you lose your turn and any points you made during that turn.

OBJECT: To get scoring dice on every roll, and to be the first player to get more than 10,000 points.

GET STARTED: Each player must roll at least 400 points during one turn to get into the game. The player’s game-entry score and subsequent scores are added up below their name on the score card.

HELPFUL TIPS: A cold beer and a bottle of schapps on ice makes the scoring much easier.

PLAY:

  • The first player rolls five dice and decides which dice they want to use for score. If they don’t roll any ONES, FIVES or other scoring combinations, their turn is over and they must pass the dice to the next player.

  • Only ONES and FIVES count by themselves. Other numbers count as Three-Of-A-Kind or more – but not in pairs.

  • You don’t have to remove all the dice that count on your roll, only the ones you want to use for score.

  • If you roll no scoring dice, your turn is over and you lose all the points you rolled on that turn.

  • You may stop rolling at any time, take your points and pass the dice.

  • When one player reaches 10,000 points (or any final score you decide on), all other players get one more turn to try to beat them.

  • HIGHEST SCORE OVER 10,000 WINS THE GAME. The more players you have the lower you might want to decide the winning score to be.

SCORING:

FIVES = 50 points each
ONES = 100 points each

  • 5 Of A Kind (in one roll) (e.g) 5x2s = 1500 points

  • A Straight (in one roll) (1,2,3,4,5 or 2,3,4,5,6)= 2000 points
