Hi James,

If we count 15s first, then the three 3s make 9 so they can make 15 in
combination with each of the 6s - that's two 15s. In addition the two
sixes make 12, so they can make 15 with each of the 3s - that's
another 3 15s. Here are the scoring combinations:

```3 3 3 6   = 15
3 3 3   6 = 15
3     6 6 = 15
3   6 6 = 15
3 6 6 = 15
```

That's 5 15s for 10 points total.

Now count pairs - a pair of 6s scores 2, and a pair royal of 3s scores
6 (you can make 3 possible pairs from 3 of a kind). For pairs 8 points
total.

There are no runs or flushes and you don't have the Jack of nobs, so
the total is 10 + 8 = 18.

### how to count with 6 and 3s

I had three 6 in my hand and an A
a 3 turned up on the pack. Is this 18 points?

### A dozen

6,6,6,A and a 3 equals 12 points. Not sure where you are getting the extra 6 points from.
