#### Description:

The HiLoTarget dice game is a game for two or more players. There are three versions of the game called Try for High, Go for Low, and Hit the Target. You use three polyhedra dice:

A tetrahedron with four sides used to roll 1, 2, 3, or 4 An octahedron with eight sides used to roll 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8. A dodecahedron with 12 sides used to roll 1, 2 ,3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12.

A turn consists of three dice rolls. Each player does the following:

Roll #1: Roll all three dice, choose one of the dice, and record the score on a score sheet.

Roll #2: Roll two of the dice, excluding the die chosen on the first roll, choose one of the two dice, and record the score on the score sheet.

Roll #3: Roll the die not choosen on the first two rolls, and record the score on the score sheet.

We usually play four rounds.
