Brain Bones is one of a package of games produced by The Code Zone. Games from this package were used, in various combinations, in around twenty different game compilation packages.

Brain Bones is a single-player, strategy, dice based game where the object is to achieve a high score. The player is presented with five dice. The object is to 'roll' these dice and swap them around until two pairs are displayed. With each roll one of the dice is discarded, the game ends when one discard number has been used eight times. Initially the player starts with a negative score and only reaches a score of zero after five sets of two pairs have been rolled.

The game is entirely mouse controlled. It is played in a window which cannot be re-sized. The game has sound, different backgrounds and types of piece, a high score screen and in-game help screens.
