In Sly Dice each player tries to earn as many points as possible by rolling various dice combinations. The dice are rolled behind each player's shield thus others do not know what you have rolled.
When rolling is done each player claims which dice combinations they have, however, when claiming a dice combination, a player may be bluffing. Other players have the opportunity to accuse any player of bluffing and, depending on the outcome, some players will score points. False accusation gives you negative points, successful bluffing — positive points in each round. The more rounds you manage to bluff successfully the more points you get and vice versa. The player with the most points is the winner!
