Fortunes made and lost with a roll of the dice ...

If you don't have a conflicting final for another game Sunday morning at 9:00 AM and you are looking for a relatively easy game at the end of the weekend, try $GREED. $GREED is a simple dice rolling game with only one decision: Do you keep rolling the dice to try to get more points or stop. The length of the game is only one hour, so you will still have time in the morning to pack, check out, eat breakfast or play other games.

Player order is determined at random. Each player will get two turns to try to score as many points as possible. The player with the most points at the end of the tournament will be the winner. A turn consists of rolling six special dice to try to get scoring combinations. Then all of the dice that were used in scoring combinations are removed and the remaining dice are rolled to try to make more scoring combinations. Once the player has scored with all 6 dice, the player has to make at least one more roll using all six dice. This continues until the player decides to stop rolling or else does not roll a scoring combination on the last dice rolled. If the player does not roll a scoring combination, the player loses all of the points accumulated on that turn. If the player decides to stop rolling, they score the points accumulated to that point. The player will take their second turn immediately after they finish the first turn rolling the dice.

Last year, we had 36 players. The winner was the 30th player to roll the dice. The winning score was 2350 points. Minimum scoring combinations are 50 points, so our winner did well when compared to the winning score in 1997: approx.1800 points. Use these scores as targets if you play this year. We will also have a leaderboard showing the top score at any moment.

One final note: last year, 22 of our 36 participants tied for last place with 0 points, including the GM. So join us and
don't worry if you don't score. You won't be alone.
