the Wednesday nightcap ...

Can you stop or will you push your luck to the limits? Nice light filler for opening or closing a session. But be warned, statistics is truly your friend. The idea is quite simple. There's a board with all the possible results of two six-sided dice: 2 through 12. The object of the game is to move a little marker to the top of three columns by rolling that result, but you need many more 7's than you need 12's, based on the likelihood of each result. During your turn, you roll the dice and place temporary markers onto the board. You can continue moving these markers until either none of your dice match (your turn is over and all progress you've made is gone), or cut your losses and end your turn (placing a permanent marker in your rows).

This underrated Sid Sackson classic was actually released here in America, but it never did well enough commercially to stay in print for more than a couple of years. An anonymous sponsor picked this out of print oldie as a replacement for Greed which failed to make the cut in the membership voting in 2006. It's been a hit since then. There's liable to be a shortage of games, so if you've got one, bring it.
