How To Win At Knucklebones

If you are smart enough in the game, you can even beat Shrumy. You may follow the following tactics to win the game:

  1. Always use your chance in getting the double or triple numbers, even if they are not as high. 
  2. Try to take out the dice of your opponent as much as you can. If it’s possible, try eliminating the doubles and triples.
  3. You may be given a choice to either match with your opponent’s dice or eliminate it. You need to choose wisely. You can do a little math here to figure out the better gain for the net in this situation.

As an example, if you manage to shoot one six, then that would be better than matching for two more points.

  1. You can put in dice that are high in numbers, the one your opponent has filled beforehand. Doing so will avoid the elimination of your scores through them.
  2. Try having a column for trash, where you can place all the ones and twos. It would be perfect if you could have that column on the other side of your opponent’s column that is empty.

You can also try baiting them by eliminating your dice that have low numbers. Consequently, you can replace those dice with good numbers.

  1. You can win the game if you are the one to put in the ninth dice; that is the last one, however, if your opponent is left with a number of matches and dices that are high in number.

You are summoned to death by those Gods, and The Gods want you killed because, according to them, there would come a lamb that would destroy all of them, their beliefs even. Furthermore, what they are the most afraid of is the revealing of the god, The One Who Waits.

Following this, one of the followers of the four gods executes you. Surprisingly, you get to meet with The One Who Waits. As the game moves forward, it is discovered that The One Who Waits got betrayed and then imprisoned by the other four gods. 

The One Who Waits gives you a choice of getting back to life, but with a condition. It turns out that God has not completely forgotten about the betrayal and hence wants revenge. As a result, you will get to live again, get amazing powers, and take revenge on those Gods.
