    five six-sided dice used as a poker hand

    Okay, I am not a math guy-I have a painting BA, so cut me some slack as I butcher the whole math theories trying to look like I know something.
    My friends and I were working out a dice game based on the common six-sided die, trying to apply the same ranking system as poker. I totally disagreed with them that the ranking system could really be applicable. The way I figure the statistics the ranking should be
    1,2,3,4,5-greater
    Five of a kind-hightest number wins
    Full house 3 of a kind plus a pair
    Four of a kind
    Three of a kind
    Two pair
    Pair
    I am I out of step here?

    Let me know-thanks

    Sorry to disappoint you if you thought you'd come up with an original idea, but poker dice have been around for a long time!

    If you Google 'poker dice odds' you'll find all you need to know. Here's a simple table showing most of what you need to know.
