Cincinnati Casino Game is a dicegame. Players try to score money in 12 rounds by rolling certain combinations of dice.
Cincinnati is a gambling game released in 2006 by AMIGO and it wants to emulate a Casino experience.
The players roll dice at different tables with distinct winning conditions. They can buy extra rolls to increase their chance of winning with poker chips they got at the beginning of the game and can also play duels against each other. The player with the money after 12 rounds wins.
The game comes with:
– 6 leather dice cups, 30 red plastic dice and 6 “beer coasters” to roll on
– a pack of (small) cards of average quality: money cards (from 15,000 to 35,000), chip cards, duel cards and 3 cards for table choice for each player
– 3 felt “table mats” to represent different gaming tables
– a stack of poker chips
The game wants to create a genuine casino atmosphere with its material.
In each round, one card is put on each game table. These cards can be cash cards, duel cards or chip cards. Then, each player rolls his 5 dice and secretely looks below his cup. After this, he decides on which table to play by playing one of his three table cards face down. This decision depends of course on the payout of the tables and the player’s estimation of his success chances.
The payout conditions for the three tables are:
A – at least a three of a kind
B – at least a strait of 4 dice
C – at most 11 pips on the dice
After revealing the table choice, each player has two additional rolls to fullfill the table’s winning condition. If there is more than one player on a given table, only the one with the best result (according to poker rules) gets the pot (i.e. all cards on the table). Tables that were not “cleared” get another card at the beginning of the next round, i.e. the pot grows.
Players may buy additional rolls with the poker chips they got at the beginning of the game (one chip for each roll). The chips are worth 5,000 at the end of the game if not used.
If a player won a chip card, he exchanges it for 2 additional poker chips from the supply.
If a player won a duel card, he challenges another player in a duel. A duel again means 3 rolls of each opponent. Then the one with the highest result wins, according to the standard poker sequence: 5 of a kind, 4 of a kind, long strait, etc. down to one pair. If the challenger wins, he takes the highest cash card from his opponent, if he loses, the challenged player gets nothing, he just managed to defend himself.
When all duels have been resolved, the next round starts by putting new (or additional) cards on the tables. After 12 rounds of dice rolling, the player with the most money (cash and remainig poker )
