Scores are only calculated for a particular set of dice being set aside after a turn. It does not count dice which were already set aside in previous rolls and has already been scored.
For ex., if a player gets two 1s and sets it aside scoring 200 and gets another 1 in the next roll and sets it aside, it will only score a single 100 and not 1000 for three 1s so the total score would be 300.

The first player to score 10000 points wins the game.
