Way of Playing
The game requires 3 dice and a game board. On each of them are the symbols of the 4 playing cards as well as a black anchor and a red crown.
The field is similar to roulette used for wagering. It can also be designed as a cloth.
Each player places his bet on the fields. A throw then decides on profit or loss.
If the dice show one or more symbols, it is a win.
