Chicago or Rotation This dice game probably derives from the similar pool game called Chicago. Any number can play, two dice are used, and any player may go first. On the first round each player throws once and tries to make a 2. If successful, he scores 2 points, if not he scores nothing. On the second round each player shoots for a 3 which, if made, scores 3 points. All of the eleven number combinations possible with two dice (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12) are played for in this manner, beginning with the lowest. The player having the highest total score after all numbers have been shot for is declared the winner. Baseball Baseball fans go for this one. Baseball is a two-person game with two dice and several counters to represent men. A diagram representing a baseball diamond and a nine-inning box score chart are drawn.

The player up at bat (throwing the dice) throws until he has three outs counted against him, after which the number of runs he has made in that inning is entered on the box score and his opponent throws. The player with the highest number of runs at the end of nine innings is the winner. Pig Any number of players may play and one die is used. Each player throws to decide the order of play, low man going first, next highest second, and so on. The first player throws the die as many times as he desires, adding the numbers on the upper face of the die each time. If he throws an ace it cancels out whatever score he has made on that turn and he must pass the die to the next player. He may stop throwing and pass the die to the next player at any time, and if he does so before throwing an ace, he is credited with the sum of the numbers he has thrown on that turn. Thirty-Six Any number can play and one die is used. Each player puts a stake in the center forming a pool and each one throws the die to determine order of play, low man going first, next highest next, and so on. The players throw the die in turn and continue to throw, adding each number thrown to the previous one and calling out the totals. The object is to reach 36 or approach it as closely as possible without passing it. Players passing 36 are busted. The player who comes closest to 36 wins. Ties divide the pool. Most players throw again at 32 or less stop at 33 or more. Aces This game is also called Aces to the Center, Deuces to the Left, and Fives to the Right.

- Each die can be counted in only one combination on any throw.
- Each player must have a double chart, showing the numbers from one through twelve in one column, and from twelve back to one in another; this is necessary because the player will be scoring in both series of numbers at the same time.
