Zilch is a dice game of great skill (and a little luck) in which winning is all about knowing when to take the points and when to take a chance.

DescriptionEdit

InstructionsEdit

Follow the in-game tutorial or read the "Rules" page.

UpdatesEdit

FYI: The computer players get exactly the same random dice rolls as the player does. I have written a blog post explaining how the CPU players work and why they’re not rigged. You can also read the source code if you want.

Fixed bugs: 500 points for three pairs bug, CPU sticking bug, who goes first bug, menu screen bug, reverse winner bug, 443322 bug, improved multi option behaviour

GameplayEdit

Zilch Game In Progress

A game of Zilch being played

The gameplay is simple yet addictive. First you roll 6 dice, the numbers you roll are worth different scores ingame (See Scoring). You can hold dice that are worth points and re-roll dice that are worth nothing. Your turn ends when you either "bank" your turns score adding it too your total for the game or roll the remaining dice and get no scoring dice, losing the points for that turn.

Not scoring is a "Zilch". Three consecutive Zilches and you lose 500 points.

Scoring with all 6 dice gets you s free roll allowing you to re-roll all 6 and add to your existing score for the round, you can still lose them all by not rolling more scoring dice at any time.
