Going to Boston is a fun, fast, dice game. You may have as many players as you want, allowing for a large group to play! Three dice, a piece of paper, and a pencil are all the supplies needed to take this game on the road!

Take your chances and make your rolls! The goal is to accumulate more points than any other player, making you the winner!


To begin setup, have the players sit in a circle around the playing area. Ensure that there is an open space in the middle, giving plenty of room for the dice to be rolled. Each player will then roll one of the dice. The player with the highest roll will be the first player.

Before the game begins, decide among one another as to how many rounds will be played. At the end of those rounds, the game will come to an end. Once this has been decided, the game is ready to begin!


The player who rolled the highest score will begin the game. During their turn, the player will roll three dice, attempting to make the highest combination. They will then set aside the highest scoring die from that roll.

The player will then roll another time, keeping the highest scoring die from that roll. When the final die is rolled, that score is kept. They will then tally their score by adding up the scores of their dice and write it on a score pad.

Gameplay will continue clockwise around the group in this manner, allowing each player to have a turn before the round comes to an end. At the end of the round, a winner for the round is announced. Once all the rounds have been played, the game comes to an end. The player who has the most points at the end of the game, wins!


The game comes to an end when the predetermined number of rounds has been finished. Each player will then add their points up from all of the rounds. The player with the most points, wins!
