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 players do not know what others have rolled. When rollling is done each player claims which dice combination 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. At the end of the game the player with the most points becomes the winner.
