# Best way to play the 101-sum dice game

So i heard about the following game:

Suppose there are two players (or more). Each player throws a dice in his turn (as many times as he wants), he sums the numbers that comes up - until 1 comes and he gets 0 points for his turn and passes it to the other player. Unless, he chooses to stop before 1 comes and he gets sum-of-the-throws points.

The first player to get to 101 points wins (unless they both gets to it on the same turn and it's a draw)

What is the best way to play this game?

• what if a player has $100$ points and throws a $6$? – Mastrem Dec 21 '17 at 7:54
• See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pig_(dice_game) Probably reference 4 is what you're after. – Lord Shark the Unknown Dec 21 '17 at 7:55
• Sorry, forgot to mention :) First player to get 101 or more wins – euler90 Dec 21 '17 at 8:27
