I am playing a dice game in which I roll a dice and add the point to one I rolled previously.
My goal is to get maximum sum but if I roll 1 I am going to loose all my points and get zero and the game is finished.
the question is following;
what should be the best strategy to get maximum sum?

I'm not clear on the rules of this "game." Is only one die involved, or more than one? Are you adding the rolls together until you reach a certain specific number? What is the goal of the game? In rolling a die, I can't see how there's any strategy -- which is why there's a saying, "luck of the roll."
