Step 4:  Gather the rocks in one hand.  Roll them onto the ground like you would dice or jax.  Count how many rocks are painted side up.  First person to get to 30 stones painted side up first is the winner!  If you are playing by yourself, see how many rolls it takes you to get to 30 painted side up.
