1. Each player chooses either 6, 7, 8, or 9 as their "knock out" number. Different players can choose the same number if they want.

2. Players take turns to throw both dice, once per turn. Add up the number on both dice. If you throw your number (either 6, 7, 8 or 9), you are knocked out of the game until the next round.

3. The winner is the last player left when all the other players are knocked out. The game can continue for as long as the players want it to last.
