Description:

In this Sid Sackson classic, players must press their luck with dice and choose combinations tactically to close out three columns.

The board has one column for each possible total of two six-sided dice, but the number of spaces in each column varies: the more probable a total, the more spaces in that column and the more rolls it takes to complete.

On their turn, a player rolls four dice and arranges them in duos: 1 4 5 6 can become 1+4 and 5+6 for 5 & 11, 1+5 and 4+6 for 6 & 10, or 1+6 and 4+5 for 7 & 9.

The player places or advances progress markers in the open column(s) associated with their chosen totals, then chooses whether to roll again or end their turn and replace the progress markers with markers of their color.

A player can only advance three different columns in a turn and cannot advance a column which any player has closed out by reaching the end space; if a roll doesn't result in any legal plays, the turn ends with that turn's progress lost.

A predecessor from 1974, The Great Races, exists as a paper-and-pencil game.

Players try to win three of the eleven number columns as quickly as possible. To do this, they roll the four dice and form two pairs, which determine the columns on which they may first place the white cones (the runners).

During their turn, players may roll the dice as long as they wish -provided that they can place or move at least one of the runners. If, after rolling the dice, a player is unable to move, his turn ends immediately and he loses everything that he achieved during that turn. …
