The aim of Bunco is to roll the number that matches the round number that you are playing. In round 1, the goal is to roll three 1’s, in round 2, the goal is to roll three 2’s and so on.
Every time someone successfully rolls the right amount of the number you need, you get a “Bunco” – which is a single point. All three dice must land on the round number, however there are some variations of the game where you gain a point for every dice that reads the round number. At the end of the game, the person with the most points wins.
The concept of Bunco is very simple, but becomes a very addictive game and can involve any number of people. Bunco is one of the most popular dice games in the United States.
