There are a total of 3 dice. L=pass a chip to the left, R=pass a chip to the right, C=put a chip in the center. If you roll a dot, you keep a chip. Perform the actions indicated on all your dice, distributing or keeping chips as indicated above. Play continues to the left until there is only one remaining player with chips. The last player with chips wins the pot in the center. Players aren’t eliminated when they run out of chips because, as long as the game continues, chips might be passed to them.
