THE WITCHER 2: ASSASSINS OF KINGS ENHANCED EDITION
3.16 How to Win in Dice Poker
The rules of dice poker in The Witcher 2 are modeled off the real world game of dice poker, which is very similar to the poker card game. They will be very intuitive if you’ve ever played poker or real world dice poker before. If you haven’t, here’s a quick explanation of how the game works.
To defeat your opponent, you need to roll a better “hand” with the game’s five dice. You roll the dice by flicking your right control stick. Be sure to do it gently. If you roll hard and knock a die out of the playing field, then you have to finish the round with the four dice you have left. You get to roll your dice twice. After the first roll, you tap the interaction button to highlight dice you’d like to roll again.
The first time you roll, you can choose to bet orens on the outcome of your roll. Your opponent does the same. Before you roll the second time, you can choose to raise or lower your bet, and so can your opponent. Use this list of dice poker hands to determine how strong your hand currently is, and which dice you’d like to reroll on your second roll. The hands are listed from the strongest to the weakest hands.
