"Ship, Captain, and Crew" (also known as "Ship of Fools", "Six
Five Four", "Clickety Clack", or "Ship, Captain, Bosan") is a dice
game of nearly pure chance. The object of the game is to roll a six
(the "ship"), a five ("Captain"), and a four ("crew") with three dice,
and get the highest score with the other two dice ("the ship's cargo").
Bill's Games' version is played as a solitaire game, with 5 rounds.
You roll three times each round. If you get a 6, 5 and 4 within the
first two rounds, you can choose which of the other two dice to keep,
and which to re-roll, to try and attain the most cargo. Your cargo
at the end of the 3rd round is added to your score.
Since you can get a maximum of 12 cargo, the highest score possible
after 5 rounds is 60 points. Enjoy!
