If you've been looking for a version of poker dice to play on your Beeb, then look no further. This is an adequate enough representation of the game but that, in itself, is hardly going to set the gaming world alight.

Faced with the option of choosing from two to six players (any can be the computer) to take it in turns to throw five dice, three throws per round. Able to hold certain dice, you must try and form winning combinations - just sixes, three of a kind, etc.

The graphics are nothing outstanding but the dice are clear and the scoring simple enough. This strikes me as being exactly like a superior magazine listing - it's fun but it must have a minority market, I'm afraid.
