    how do you play?

    You bet your money on one of the 6 different symbols, the dice are rolled and you get paid for each die that comes up with the symbol you have bet on. However the game is well in the bankers favour as there are 6 different symbols but only 3 dice.
    So, if you put your money on the Crown, and 2 Crowns come up on the dice, you get 2 x what you bet, plus your bet back, if the Crown does not come up, you lose.

    Hope that Helps

    Banned in the Army during WWI, but it was very popular and many made a lot of money playing it. It gets mentioned in many WWI accounts but was originally a Napoleonic period navy game I think. I have a single hand carved bone dice found on the foreshore many years back.

    Very cool to get a period set, very nice Dean.

    I picked up a set yesterday, and I'll add some pics later.

    The rules.

    The game is played between a player and a banker. A canvas or felt mat marked with the six symbols is used for play. The player places bets on one or more symbols. He then throws the three dice. If there is a bet on any symbol which comes up on one or more of the dice, the banker pays the player the amount of his stake for each die showing that symbol: even money if one, 2:1 if two, and 3:1 if three. If the symbol doesn't come up, the player loses his bet.

    On average, the player will receive back 92.1% of the amount he bets. The house takes roughly 7.9% of all money bet. Thus, the banker has a substantial edge. In a game at a festival or casino, the house will be banker. In a game among friends, each person serves as banker in turn.
