Blackjack Dice is a good game for older children or adults using two dice. The aim is to be closest to 21 without going over. It could also be played by younger children with adult supervision.
Age: Suits older children and adults
No. of players: 2 or more
Equipment: Two dice
Time: Each round takes 2-5 minutes. A full game could last 15+ minutes
Aim: To be the closest to 21 without going over.
1. Each player has only one turn per round but they can throw the dice as many times as they want. Throw both dice and add up their score. Throw again and add the scores together. Once a player reaches 16 points, they can choose either to stop or to throw only one die (dice is the plural of die). However, if your score is 22 or more, you have busted and are out for that round. When a player stops or busts, the next player throws the dice and so on until all players have completed the round.
2. The aim is to score 21, or to be the player closest to 21. At the end of the round, a player who scored exactly 21 will gain two points for that round. If no one scores 21, the player closest to 21 gains one point. If two players have the same score, no points are gained for that round.
3. The overall winner is the player who first reaches an agreed number of points (say, 10 points for children or 21 points for adults) or the player with the highest number of points at the end of a certain time limit (say 15 minutes for children or half an hour for adults).
