How to Win
The game of Tenzi involves rolling ten dice as fast as possible until a player rolls ten of a kind (such as ten 3s). The first player to achieve this feat must shout "Tenzi" to signal their victory and win the game.
How to Win
Perparation: Give everyone playing 10 of the same color dice.

Game Play: To start playing, each player selects a set of dice and holds all ten of them in their hands. When someone says "Go," everyone rolls their dice simultaneously. Players must quickly examine their roll and determine which number they will aim for. For instance, if a player has more 3's than any other number, they should choose that number. Then, they set aside all the dice showing that number and roll the remaining dice again. There is no need to wait for other players to roll again since everyone rolls together only on the first roll. Players continue to roll until all ten of their dice show the same number.

Other ways to play include the following but you could certainly make up your own variants if you so choose.

Tenzi Tower:
Instead of putting aside the dice you have successfully rolled, stack them on top of each other. The first player to stack all ten of their dice and shout "Tenzi" wins!

During the game, if you notice that another player has rolled the number you are going for, you can steal their dice and give them an equal number of your own dice. However, you cannot steal on the first roll of the game or from a player who is going for the same number as you. This adds an element of strategy and excitement to the game!

Instead of aiming to match all ten dice with the same number, attempt to get five dice of one number and five dice of another number, and shout "Tenzi" to win.

Team Tenzi:
You can team up and play together in TENZI! Work together to get all the dice on one number or assign each team member a different number to go for.

Target Tenzi:
Before the game starts, all players must declare which number they will be aiming for. Alternatively, players can agree to all go for the same number for an added challenge.

Mega Tenzi:
Need more of a challenge? Double the fun with the Twentyzi pack! With twice the number of dice, the game gets even more exciting and frenzied.
