Finito - Rules of the dice game
Objective of the game
The aim of the game is to sort your 12 tokens in ascending order (from 1 to 12).
The game is played in two phases.
In the first one, players place their 12 tokens on their board.
In the second phase, they move the tokens from one square to another until the goal is achieved by someone.
Every turn, a special die (20 sides) is rolled. The number shown on the die (from 1 to 20) indicates the square(s) on which players must move a token.
In the first phase, players can choose among at most 3 tokens.
In the second phase, they can choose any token.
If the numbers indicated by the die are all occupied by a token, then players must place a token on one of the closest empty squares with a lower and higher number.
End of the game
When a player successfully arranges his 12 tokens in order (FINITO), he wins the game immediately.
If both players finishes in the same turn, the game is a draw.
If a match is played over several games, points are scored for every game.
The number of points scored by the winner depends on the longest series of tokens of his opponent.
If his opponent made a series of 8 tokens, the winner scores 12 (the maximum) minus 8 = 4 points.
Points are then tallied over several games.
In single game matches, scoring is only given for information. In that case, it makes no difference to win 1-0 or 8-0.
