(BETA rules summary)
You will see dice lined up below your black strip. First, assign a die to one of the 5 roles on the black strip at the top (click the die, then the black strip role). This role will definitely happen.
Dice you have under role will (and the die on the black strip) can be used to perform that role's action(s). Dice you have on other roles may be usable as well, but only if an opponent picks that role.
For each die you have on a role that at least one person picked, you can do an action. Any dice for actions not chosen go back to the cup.

All used dice go into your citizenry (your personal dice pool) -- you will have to spend 1 money per die to buy them back. If you spend all your money, you get 1 money at the end of the round.
If everyone has fewer than 12 tiles built (players start with 3 tiles) and not all the VP chips are used up, then another round is played.
