Pirate Dice Game

Arrrr-roll ’em!

Each player will take turns rolling the five dice three times each round.  The goal is to roll a six (ship), a five (captain), and a 4 (crew).  If you fail to roll all three of those on your turn, you take a zero for the round.  If you do get the ship, captain, and crew, then the last two dice values are your pirate booty.  Your total for the round is your amount of booty.  Play each round as it’s own game or work toward a certain total.
