      Max and Jacks / poker dice

      'allo you 'orrible lot!

      Can anyone here remember the rules of Max and Jacks? It was a pub-type board game played with poker dice and was very popular back in Zim.. probably with the older generation of Rhodies; my dad had it and we used to play it as kids.

      I've got hold of a set of poker dice but no board and can't find anything online about rules... maybe because it's know by a different name. There are various sites explaining rules for games of poker dice but they seem to be along the lines of all players throw three times to get a 'poker hand' and the best hand wins. I seem to recall Max and Jacks was more along the lines of having to complete a row of everything, i.e. all 9s,10s, Jacks, Queens, Kings, full house, etc, and that you were only allowed one attempt at each hand.. but I can't recall how you scored at the end.

      Please can soneone put me out of my misery, and if you have a board and can take a picture of it, all the better!

      Hi Skizz...Yes you're on the right track. You try and get as many 9's, 10's. Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces. You also want a full house ( 3 of one and 2 of another) and a top or bottom Macks. Bottom is 9 to King..scores 25 points, top is 10 to Ace and scores 30. The person playing throws once. makes a selection, and leaving the dice he's collecting, gathers the others and throws again. He now has to declare what he is going for, gathers any non-scoring dice and throws for the last time. His score is then filled in in the relevant square on the scoreboard and the dice pass to the next player. 9's are worth 1 point, 10's =2. J=2 Q=3 K=4 A=5. Your full house is added up accordingly...3jacks on 2 Aces would score 16. At the end of the game the highest allover score is the winner, but you can also have money on each line and whoever gets the highest full house, or most Kings etc gets the cash for that line. Hope this all jogs your memory. Sorry I can't show you a board though! Oh...if after your second throw, you elect to go for a macks and do not get it, you must put a cross through your Macks box and that;s it, you cannot go for Macks again in that game. The same goes for your full house if you miss on that.

      If in doubt about who's got the highest numbers, beat the crap out of the other person, that ensures you will win !

      Aaaah yes, starting to come back to me. So there were 8 scoring boxes; 9, 10, J, Q, K, A, Full House, Max?

      On this bit, did you mean to assign 10s and Jacks both a value of 2, or is that a typo?

      9's are worth 1 point, 10's =2. J=2 Q=3 K=4 A=5
      I can probably knock up a scoresheet on the computer rather than have the old chalkboard one but just want to 100% clarify the rules.

      Yep, sorry for that!! It should run from 9=1 up to Aces =6. not a typo but a brain blimp!!!!!!!!
      The board, as you say, is made up of a grid of 9 squares (the 9 up to max (8 squares) plus another box for the total scores) with the figures running along the top. Leave space down the left hand side for the names of the players.
      We used to play many, many games with Maggie Richardson at our local; Tod's Hotel. We played for about 50 cents a game and 5c a line...can't remember the exact amount now...but we LOVED the game....and the beer that went with it!!!

      Cheers. I had a look at the Yahtzee rules and I can see similarities but, as you say, played with dot dice rather than poker dice. I have knocked up some score sheets on paper from the computer, but a pic of a board would be great. I may get a chalk board from an art shop and paint on some lines if I can be inclined!

      I couldn't find any reference to the game online. Normally ebay items will appear in Google searches, but worth trying on there directly I guess. Cheers!

      Max and Jacks fullhouse score.

      Hi Petals, I think your scoring for max and Jacks is correct, but for some reason I seem to remember that you had a fixed score of 15 for a full house regardless of what it was, Does this ring a bell ?

      Yes, you are both correct...!!!!!!! How you score the full house is up to the players. Either score the set 15 points or . if, as we did, you bet on each line, the high/low score matters.

      Cheers! I've knocked up a similar board on paper, with several 'games' per page, which I'll stick with. I was going to get a chalh board and paint some lines on it but paper is just as easy, and easier to store in a drawer... although I may have to put a huge Lion Lager logo on it like my dad's board had!

      I'll probably stick with the rule of scoring a full house (pair and three) by counting the individual dice, as that's what I've now introduced to my friends and family. It can also swing a close game. Also will stick with top or bottom straight with the lower and higher scores depending on whether it ends with a King or an Ace.

      That was certainly the most popular way that it was played in the club I belonged to back in Salisbury many years ago. Most of the Max n' Jacks boards we had were provided by Rhodesian Breweries and had Castle lager logo's on them. many of them had that game favoured by the indigenous on the reverse. I am sure most of you would have seen it played on the ground with a series of shallow holes and stone or bottle tops were moved around. the object being to get three in a row. I cannot remember what the game was called, can anybody remember?

      on the issue of high and low max - high max (A K Q J 10) we socore as 30, low max (K Q J 10 9) we score as 25 and full house we score as 15. You have to call what you are going for on the first throw, and you have two more goes after that. If in your three throws you dont get what you nominated you got a zero score (in the case of max and full house)

      I looked high and low for a max and jacks board, and even asked the same question on here. It looks like is was only played by Zimbo's I will be revamping our board, as I did it on a white board, and the paint is peeling.

      Its a good game!

      'allo you 'orrible lot!

      Can anyone here remember the rules of Max and Jacks? It was a pub-type board game played with poker dice and was very popular back in Zim.. probably with the older generation of Rhodies; my dad had it and we used to play it as kids.

      I've got hold of a set of poker dice but no board and can't find anything online about rules... maybe because it's know by a different name. There are various sites explaining rules for games of poker dice but they seem to be along the lines of all players throw three times to get a 'poker hand' and the best hand wins. I seem to recall Max and Jacks was more along the lines of having to complete a row of everything, i.e. all 9s,10s, Jacks, Queens, Kings, full house, etc, and that you were only allowed one attempt at each hand.. but I can't recall how you scored at the end.

      Please can soneone put me out of my misery, and if you have a board and can take a picture of it, all the better!
      Salibonane!
      I remember Max and Jacks. You get 3 throws and must nominate what you are throwing for after your 2nd throw. i.e. if you nominate kings (5 points) you get 5 points for every king facing up after your 3rd throw. A straight i.e. 9, 10, jack, queen, king. or 10, jack, queen, king, ace. Gets 15 points. and a full house gets 25 points.
      Variations for gambling that I used were a small straight gets you 10 points and a top straight 15 points. A full house counted as scored.i.e. 3 kings = 15 & 2 nines = 2 a total of 17 points the best being 3 aces = 18 & 2 kings = 28 points. We also threw in a monkey which is a broken straight (5 different dice, but must include a 9 and an ace) with a king missing 15 points, with a queen missing 14 points, with a jack missing 13 points, with a 10 missing 12 points.
      I hope this is of help.

      I can see you already have the rules...we used to play all the time in Vic Falls - was more popular on the Zambian side but the shack was always there for a game. Never had more fun losing a few dollars than a game of max and jacks.

      Hi everyone,

      I'm new to this site, however, came across this thread during a google search for Max n Jacks. I have the dice, a son who's willing to learn, some of your instructions as gleaned from here, but not all the answers i.e. when does the game end? do you have to get all five 9's in one throw or can you split them? Are you restricted to only getting 5 nines, or do you carry on getting as many as you can of each number until the game ends, hence the scoring? Is it the first person who gets the high max, the low max and the full house is the winner?

      Sorry if it sounds garbled, my son and partner are asking me questions about it as I type.

      Any help would be muchly appreciated, as we are really keen to play this over Christmas.

      Ta

      Hi welcome to the sight. The rules are simple. You get three throws. after the first throw you nominate what you are going for - ie 9. Then you have two more throws to try and get as many as possible. Once your three throws are up you record the score in the box. You dont get another go at 9. The game ends when every one has recorded thier marks in each box. The person with the highest points wins.

      Hey!!!! WHOOOOAAAHHH!!! Sorry Zimajays, but you're wrong there. You throw once, have a look and make a first choice...say you threw two 10's and odds, you left the two 10's, threw the remaining three dice and got three kings....you can then change...leave your three kings, pick up the two 10's and say "I'm throwing for Kings".. the third and last throw is what is then scored.

      Petals, does that mean you can't go for 10's again, as you have already nominated them (even though you then changed to Kings?)
      They asked me why I don't have tattoo's, so I told them "Have you seen a Ferrari with bumper stickers?"

      Yes. In the game you have 8 turns each. In each turn you have an attempt of 3 throws for each of the sections; the 9's 10's etc. through to the Full House (3 of one and 2 of another) and Bottom or Top Max. (9 to King for bottom, 10 to Ace for Top)
      So once you have been for, say Aces, and got, shall we say 3...you put in the score of 18 in that box, and even if you throw 5 Aces in a subsequent round, it's just hard cheese..you've been for them and that's that. O.K.?

      Oh, if you are lucky enough to have thrown 10,jack, queen, king on your second throw, you only have to nominate that you are going for Max's..you don't have to say which one, top or bottom..you get the relevant score if you throw the Tops Ace or the Bottom 9.

      Petals, you are a star! thank you so much. I think we shall be playing this endlessly. I remember my grandpa playing when I was little. I may need to come back to you if those fussy b*ggers indoors start coming out with more smart arse questions

      Never played Yahtzee Cujimmy, so have no idea if they're alike.
      And that's fine Mercedes. Call anytime.
      We used to play endless games of Max with the people who owned and ran Tods Hotel ( near West Nick, half way 'tween Bwo. and Beit Bridge.) We used to play for money...can't remember exactly how we worked it, but it was great fun and the cash went straight into the next round so no-one ever lost!!!

      Have a look: I'm sure from your description that they're just variants on the same theme - [Dear Guest/Member to see the link to the full article/source you will need to login or register.click here to register]

      O.K. Yep, that's got many of the same aspects as Max. Obviously playing with the poker dice as opposed to straight numbers only dice is probably the biggest diffs, and some of the scoring is different. In Max, if you throw 5 different ones it's called 'a monkey' and you certainly do NOT score anything!
