# How to Play the Baseball Dice Game

The baseball dice game is a great way to pass the time while you’re waiting for your turn at bat. Here’s how to play.

## Introduction

In this fast-paced dice game, players roll three six-sided dice trying to score points. The game is played with four base runners, who start on first, second, and third base, and the player who is up to bat. Players take turns rolling the dice, moving the runners around the bases, and scoring runs. The game can be played with any number of players, but is usually best with two to four players.

To begin the game, each player rollsto dice to determine who will be the batter first. The player with the highest score becomes the batter first. Play then proceeds clockwise around the table.

The player who is up to bat rolls all three dice. The following outcomes are possible:

* If a 1 is rolled, it’s an out. The inning ends and points are tallied (see below). Play then passes to the next player clockwise who becomes the new batter.
* If a 2 or 3 is rolled, the runner on first advances one base.
* If a 4 or 5 is rolled, the runner on second advances one base.
* If a 6 is rolled, one of three things happens:
If there are no runners on base, nothing happens;
If there are runners on first and second base only , both runners advance one base; or
If there are runners on all three bases ,the runner on third scores a run and all other runners advance one base as well

After each roll of the dice, play passes clockwise to the next player who become either the new batter or fielders (the player doesn’t roll any dice this turn). Fielders can do one of two things when it’s their turn:

* Throw out a runner: The fielder chooses which base they want to target and then rolls one die. If they roll a 1 or 2 , then that runner is out and play passes to the next player clockwise; if they role any other number , then that runner remains safe and play moves on to the next player fielders (who does not get to roll any dice this turn).

* Advance a runner: The fielder can choose to move any runner up one base by rolling two dice and adding up their values . However , if they ever role doubles (two identical numbers) when doing this ,then that runner advances two bases instead of just one . After resolving this movement ,play passes on to hit batters

The inning ends when three batters are out . At this point points are scored as follows :

* Each team scores 1 point for every run that crossed home plate during that inning . So if 3 runs were scored during an inning , each team would score 3 points .

* Play then starts anew with everyone taking their previous roles except for batters , who rotate in reverse order so that whoever was last gets to go first in new inning

## The Equipment You Need

In order to play the baseball dice game, you will need the following equipment:
-A regular six-sided die
-A pencil and paper

You will also need to know the rules of baseball, as the game is played using those rules. If you are not familiar with the rules of baseball, there are many readily available resources that can explain them to you.

## Setting Up the Game

To play the baseball dice game, you will need:

-A dice cup
-1 die
-A scorecard for each player
-A pencil for each player

To set up the game, each player will take a scorecard and pencil. The player who rolls the highest number on the die will start the game.

On a player’s turn, they will shake the die in the cup and roll it onto the table. They will then consult the following key to see what actions they need to take based on the number they rolled.

## How to Play

You will need:
-1 die
-Paper
-Pen or pencil

To play the baseball dice game, each player takes turns rolling a die. The goal is to score as many runs as possible. Here’s how it works:

1. On your turn, roll the die.
2. If you roll a 1, you score a run.
3. If you roll a 2, 3, or 4, nothing happens.
4. If you roll a 5 or 6, you get to roll again. If you roll a 5 or 6 again, you score another run. If you roll anything else, your turn ends and you do not score a run.
5. The first player to reach 10 runs wins the game!

## Scoring

After all players have rolled their dice, the score for that inning is tallied. All players receive points for any hits they rolled, as well as runs scored and stolen bases. The player with the most points in an inning is the winner. In case of a tie, the player with the most hits is the winner. If there is still a tie, the player with the most stolen bases is the winner.

After all innings have been played, the player with the most points overall is the winner!

## Winning the Game

To win the baseball dice game, the first team to score 100 runs or more after each player on the team has had a turn batting, wins the game. If both teams are tied at the end of nine innings, extra innings are played until one team is ahead after a complete inning.
