A PLAYING TIP OR TWO
What does the Joker do? When the JOKER is played, the spots on the die are doubled and added to your score. However, if a 2 or 5 are rolled, then 4 or 10 points are added to the scores of the other players if they are still in the round. So the tip is “Play the Joker carefully”!
TIP 1 – TEAM PLAY
The BEST time to play the Joker when playing as part of a team
When played in the first round you could give 10 points to your three other team mates. Likewise if all your team mates did the same, each team member could be 30 points to the good. This could make all the difference in earning extra bonus points, as players earn 2 points if they win the game plus a bonus point if they have one higher Round score than their designated opponent.
TIP 2 – INDIVIDUAL PLAY
The BEST time to play the Joker when playing with others as individuals.
When you are the only player left in the round as other players will not benefit if you roll a 2 or 5 on the Joker.
TIP 3 – INDIVIDUAL PLAY
The NEXT BEST time to play the Joker.
When you only have one or two dice left and other players are still in the game.
TIP 4 – INDIVIDUAL PLAY
The WORST time to play the Joker.
In the first round as you could give 10 points to all the other players.
You do not have to play the Joker but it can give you an extra 12 points, which is a 7.5% bonus on the average round score.
