Chronicles of Tellus
Bunco is a fast-paced, six round dice game. Whoever wins the most rounds wins the pot.
Difficulty: Very Easy
There are six rounds, progressing in order from one to six, where the number of the round serves as the target for that round’s rolls. Within a round, players alternate turns rolling three dice in an attempt to obtain the target number. Players gain one point for each die matching the target. If the player gets three-of-a-kind of the target number (a Bunco), they get 21 points. The round stops when a player at a head table obtains 21 points. Whoever wins the most rounds is the overall winner and earns all of the bets.
Bunco usually has a standard, flat-rate buy-in. This price is set by the House and is not negotiable. However, most Houses have numerous Bunco tables at varying rates, so everyone can find their price range.
