In this solitaire fishing dice game You roll 3 six-sided dice. You catch a fish when you roll doubles and one different number, that different number is the kind of fish you catch.
You must always catch the small fish of a kind first, then you may catch the big one. You can never catch the big one first if the small one is still available! once you catch both of a kind those are no longer available.
Small fish are worth 1 point, big fish are worth 2 points!
If you roll trips of any kind you can catch any fish you want respecting the small to big fish catching rule. In other words, when choosing which fish to catch after rolling trips, if a small one of that kind is available you must catch the small one, but if the small one has already been caught, you can go ahead and take the big one!
You can always use a "Lucky Nudges" box to change the number of one die, but only by one unit, either up or down. As an example you can change a number 2 roll to a 1 or a 3 by marking one of the "Lucky Nudges" boxes. Use the lucky nudges carefully, you don't get more than the available four per game! Once they're gone, they're gone!
If you roll 1 2 3 the game ends immediately! The game also ends with a 4 5 6 roll or by rolling three "Awful Casts!" An Awful Cast roll is a "nothing" roll! Like a 1 4 6 or 3 4 5 for example (if you happen to "catch" a fish that's already been caught, nothing happens, roll again, this is not considered a "nothing" roll). So When you roll an "Awful Cast" mark one of the appropriate boxes. If all three get marked the game ends. BUT! with the 4 5 6 roll and the Awful Casts you may use one of your Lucky Nudges to keep going AND maybe even catch a fish in the process! As long as lucky Nudges are still available of course.
Keep rolling until you either catch all the fish or run out of luck! Happy Fishing!
