Barbudi English  Dice Game

Dice Game

Players: Any number.

Required: 2 dice.

How to play:

Each player throws a dice.

The highest becomes the shooter, and the player to their right becomes the fader.

Play rotates counter-clockwise in this game.

The fader puts up a stake.

The shooter covers part or all of the bet, and other players, in turn, may cover what is left or make side bets with one another.

The shooter or fader may decide not to bet at all, in which case the dice are passed to the next players.

The shooter and fader roll the dice alternately, the shooter rolling first.

Either of the two players wins the bet if they throw a 3-3, 5-5, 6-6, or 5-6.

They lose if they throw 1-1, 2-2,4-4, or 1-2. All other combinations are meaningless.

As long as the shooter wins, loses with a 1-2, or the fader wins with a 5-6 the player's roles remain unchanged for the next round.

Otherwise, the fader becomes the shooter and the next player the new fader.


Some play what is known as a two shot game. In this version, the fader can stipulate a two shot decision when they put up their stake.

Throws of 6-5 and 1-2 win and lose only half the bet. In this event the shooter or fader can decide to end the round there.

If the fader wins, then he becomes the new shooter.

If both players agree to a second throw, then the shooter throws again first if they won, or the fader throws first if they won.

The second half of the bet is then decided as before.

If either player wins both decisions, they take the stakes.

Otherwise, both players withdraw their own.

Once a two shot decision round has been played, both players lose their roles, regardless of who won, and the players to the right of the fader become the new shooter and fader respectively.
