"Gambling for Mooncakes" Game
Western friends have asked how to play this game, which is
very popular in Xiamen during the Mid-Autumn Festival (15th day of the 8th
lunar month--early fall). You can find information on line in places like
www.xiamenguide.com, but I couldn't find a "picture" of the prize
levels so I've put together the following information. Print this info on an A4 sheet of paper and try it!
Each player simply rolls all six dice (into a glass bowl), then everyone
cheers if they "win"--and they cheer especially loud if someone wins at
the No 1 level!

could also play by keeping score (#6 gets one point, #5 two points, etc),
or by giving each player the above "score sheet"--the first person to roll
ALL levels wins!
||Since you've got at least five
dice, you can also learn to play the western game called Yahtzee!
I found rules and a score card by typing "Yahtzee" into Google.
