Crag – learn how to play with

By: Dennis B. B. Taylor


Hey there! Ever wanted to relive the excitement of Yahtzee but without the never-ending wait? I know, we all have that game collecting dust in the back of our closets. Well, I have good news for you – Crag is here to save the day!

Crag is like Yahtzee, but supercharged. With just three dice and two rolls per turn, you can experience all the thrills of Yahtzee in a fraction of the time. No more waiting around while other players take forever to finish their turns!



Let’s start by having every player roll all three dice. The person with the highest total goes first.

Now it’s your turn! Roll all three dice and see what you get. If you don’t like your result, you can choose to roll one, two, or all three dice again. The goal is to get the best combination possible. Check the scoresheet to see what combinations are allowed. Once you’re done rolling, make sure to write down your score. Remember, you have to fill in a score space on every turn, even if you didn’t get a good combination. In that case, just write a zero.

After you’ve finished your turn, pass the dice and the scoresheet to the next player. Each player will take thirteen turns.


To win the game, you need to score the highest points possible. The most valuable roll in the game is called a Crag. Rolling a Crag requires you to roll a total of thirteen with two of the dice being a pair. For example, you could roll a 1,6,6 or a 3,5,5, or a 5,4,4. If you succeed in rolling a Crag, you earn fifty points.


After all thirteen turns have been played, it’s time to calculate the scores. Simply add up the scores from each turn. The player with the highest total score wins the game.
