Everyone can see everyones rolls and you get to choose which colour you want.

Quick run down of rules:
You only roll 6 sided dice, your skill equal number of dice you roll. So if you got a 5 in a skill you roll 5D6
4 - 5 - 6 = successes

Rolls matters in two ways.
1. In a fight, usually highest number of rolls wins or gain an advantage. So if your team of mice (Mice usually fight or argue as teams) then one will roll for each action.
2. Margin of success rolls - There you roll your dice trying to gain enough successes to succeed. 1 - simple, 3 challenging task - 5 - very hard.

Assisting somebody. Sometimes, mice can assist each other, for instance if your mice have a trait or skill that is applicable, you can give 1 dice to the character making the attempt. But you will also have to describe how you assist. (This is a sort of customer rule, but I have seen it work really well in RP)
So if one character is trying to calm down a few restless hares wanting to escape. S/he would normally roll "Hunter" to call them down, as there is a snake in the area, the difficulty is 5 -eg 5 rolls of 4,5 or 6 is needed. However, another character have the Trait - Calm, so through speaking slowly, behaving with calm determination the character assists, giving 1 extra dice to the one rolling to calm them down. While another player have the Wise (A knowledge skill) of Riding Animals, so they can use their expertise on how hares act under stress to give another extra dice to the one rolling.


Rolls vs RP:
In actions between character, we generally don´t use rolls, but let RP count, then the other player might ask how skilled you are, just to balance the level of reaction to your skill.
