Chicago is a dice game for 2 to 6 players. The number of chips each player receives at the start of the game depends on the number of players:
2 Players – 4 Chips
3-5 Players – 3 Chips
6 Players – 2 Chips
At the start of the game, the player to roll first is chosen automatically. This player has the opportunity to roll up to three times. Once satisfied with the roll the player must then announce either ‘high’ or ‘low’. If the player announces ‘high’, rolled 1s count as 100 points and 6s as 60 points. However if the player announces ‘low’, the 1s and 6s count as 1 point and 6 points respectively.
The player, whose turn it is next, may only roll as many times as the first player. The same applies for the remaining players. They must roll higher or lower totals (depending on the call). The aim of the game is to eliminate the opponents from the game. The last player remaining is the winner.
