Rules of the Game

Here are the rules of " The Cabin on the Back”.

The Cabin on the Back is composed of two games:

* The game which is played with 1 dice, called The Battle.
* The game is played with two dice named The 2 Dice Game takes place in three phases : The clearing, the 10 turns each and the battle.

It is recommended: that beginners start playing the battle with one dice & for the game with two dice, you should note the points each on a slate for example.

   

The Battle with one die :

Each one in his turn, each player throw down the die at 2.5 inches ( at least) from the area choosen

  Then, if he gets :

‹ B ›  Back:

the player plays again!

La Cabane Sul'Dos :: Jeu de dés en bois

‹ C ›  Cabin on the back:

then it means the player looses his turn and the following player plays twice!

La Cabane Sul'Dos :: Jeu de dés en bois

‹ T ›  Top : the player scores 1 !

‹ F ›  Façade:

same player tries again. If he gets another ‹ F ›  , or a ‹ T ›  Then he scores one!

The one who scores, plays again.
The first who reaches 7 points wins the game.

Two ambiguous situations, after "Cabin" :

1. If the first player gets a ‹ C ›  (cabin), the next player can throw the dice twice. If the second player gets a ‹ B ›  (Blank-which means Play again), then he can throw the dice twice again.
For instance, let's say that Lucie gets a ‹ C ›  . Then the next player, John, throws the dice twice. If John gets a ‹ B ›  , then he plays again twice.
However, if after ‹ B ›  , John goes on with a ‹ C ›  , the next player will play twice.

2. A ‹ C ›  (Cabin) gives the next player the right to throw the dice twice. But if at first he gets an ‹ F ›  , then he replays only once.
Example : John gets a ‹ C ›  . If Lucie gets an ‹ F ›   followed by a ‹ D ›  (Right) or a ‹ G ›  (Left), she can't play anymore for this turn..
Instead, if Lucie gets an ‹ F ›   or a ‹ T ›  , she marks. If she gets a ‹ B ›  , she replays once. If she goes on with a ‹ C ›  , the next player will play twice.

‹ F ›  stands for Façade or Front. With one ‹ F ›   you play again ; with two consecutive ‹ F ›  , you mark 1 point.

   

Rules to the 2 dice game :

This time the purpose is to get the second cabin the right way up.
When you’ve got 3 more points than your opponents, you won the game.

 

Rule n°1 :  To play, you just need two dice!

The small one and the tall one. You can play either on a table, either on the floor. To play you can throw the dice or just drop them but at 2.5 inches from the surface chosen.

First stage : Clearing of brushwood ...

The purpose of this first stage is to get the first cabin the right way up.
First, you throw both dice… You’ve got a pair of letters.

Rule n°2 : « Cabin on the back »

- If you get a ‹ C ›  , you loose your turn since ‹ C ›  means “Cabin on the back” Till you don’t get a ‹ C ›  , go ahead…

Rule n°6 : « The first T »

- When you get ‹ T ›  with one of the two dice, it is commonly said that you put the first cabin up!

Then we move on to the 10 dice rolls.

Rule n°7 : « Fatal Cabin »

Nevertheless, if when you throw the dice you get a ‹ C ›  and a ‹ T ›  , sorry, you gotta keep the ‹ T ›  and you can’t do the 10 dice

   

2° stage : 10 rolls for each ...

Leave the first ‹ T ›  and you have ten dice rolls to get the second ‹ T ›  .
(Count out loud the number of times it will take to make a ‹ T ›  with the other die)

If you get ‹ B ›  , it counts for nothing

(For example, if you get ‘B’ when you throw the die for the Seventh times you count “always 6”)

La Cabane Sul'Dos :: Jeu de dés en bois

If you get ‹ C ›  , it counts for 2.

(For example, if you get ‹ C ›  ,when you throw the die for the Fifth times you count 5, 6)

If you get ‹ T ›  you score!

 

The one, who scores, plays again.
When you’ve got 3 more points than your opponents you won the game.

 

If no one has managed to get ‹ T ›  after 10 rolls, move on to the ‘battle’…

   

3° stage : The Battle

Each one in his turn, each player throw down the die 
if he obtains :

‹ F ›  Façade: same player tries again. If he gets another ‹ F ›  , or a ‹ T ›  

Then he scores one!

The one, who scores, plays again.
When you’ve got 3 more points than your opponents you won the game

Two ambiguous situations, after "Cabin" :
