P.G.A Golo Golf Dice

Price-$3.99/£2.39

Now you can play the best-selling, world famous clubhouse dice game on your iPhone.

Golfers and non-golfers alike find PGA.com’s GOLO easy to learn, quick to play, and incredibly addicting (you’ve been warned…). And you can play a round of 18 holes in just a couple of minutes! But just like real golf there is pressure, decision-making, and the pure joy of going “LO!”

Features

• LIVE Peer-to-Peer Gaming Functionality: Challenge your buddies or other players from around the world whether they’re on their iPhone or PC.
• Play solo or against the computer
• Keep track of wins and losses against your competitors
• Establish a monthly and annual GOLO handicap
• Take pride in posting your displayed GWR (GOLO Worldwide Ranking)
• Play tournaments and win prizes (Coming soon!)

This newly released application is a virtual re-creation of the classic table-top dice game that has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide; making it the best selling golf game of all time!

The nine dice represent the first nine holes of an eighteen hole match. All eighteen holes are Par 3’s, Par 4’s, or Par 5’s. The dice feature eagles, birdies, pars, bogeys, and the dreaded “others” that go as high as quintuple bogeys.

With the distinctive Challenge a Buddy feature, users can play a friend iPhone-to-iPhone as well as iPhone-to-PC. So Challenges aren’t limited to users with iPhone/iPod Touch devices. Simply sign up for an account directly through PGA.com to play the online version.

HISTORY OF GOLO
GOLO was invented by a PGA professional, Patrick Shea, in the summer of 1998. Shea soon began selling the games to golf shops out of the back of his car. Since then over half a million games have been sold in stores such as Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Barnes & Noble, Kmart and ToysRUs.

The basic rules of GOLO are very simple:
Step 1 Roll all nine dice.
Step 2 Remove your lowest score(s). (A circle is a birdie, a star is an eagle.) You must remove at least one die, but you may remove as many as you wish.
Step 3 Place the remaining dice in the cup and roll again.
Step 4 Continue to roll until all nine dice have been removed.
Step 5 Add up the scores for all nine dice to get your nine-hole score. (To play 18 holes, repeat the process and add both nine-hole scores together.)

Never played this game or golf, can anyone give me an idea of how the dice game plays?

Is it just luck of the roll?
