Chicago is a dice game for 2 to 6 players. At the beginning of the game, each player receives lives in the form of tokens – the number of lives depends on the number of players. The aim of the game is to still have one or more of these lives remaining at the end of the game.

The first player to roll may choose to roll the dice up to three times. Every following player may, in turn, only roll as often as the first player. Once a player has rolled, he/she must announce either “High” or “Low”. If the player announces “High”, the other players must roll higher scores, and visa-versa should the player announce “Low”.

For particular dice combinations, such as 66 and 666, one or two of the 6s is turned into a 1. Should a player roll 111, every opponent loses a life. If 165 is rolled, the player may take a life from an opponent of his/her choice.

The player who rolls the worst score in a round always loses a life. The winner is the player who has at least one life left at the end of the game.
