Ok, I thought about it and it's only fair that if we have some 7-roll rounds, we also have some 9-roll ones. So here's the sched:

  • Round 5: Eight rolls.
  • Round 6-8: Seven rolls.
  • Round 9-11: Eight rolls.
  • Round 12-13: Nine rolls.

Don't ask me what the logic or reason is, as there is none. Just trying to mix it up and confuse people.

Anyhow, today: eight rolls. Next round (probably Monday): only seven. Now, roll, dammit!

c'mon deuce.

Josh S. said...

Drops a deuce?

Mr. Customer said...

*adds fiber to diet*

Mr. Customer said...

How unsatisfying.

2-2-3-4-5, gives us a good shot at a short and long straight, though.

Josh S. said...

(tries...again)

My first roll was a 1, no?

J. Steve said...

keep them doggies rollin'

MR. F said...

Roll?

J. Steve said...

If I'm not mistaken, I've got
2 2 3 1 5 4 1 4

That gives us a nice large straight!

Josh S. said...

Craaaaap.

2-2-1-5-4-1-4-6

J. Steve said...

I think you're missing Mr C at 8:34

Steve Dittmore said...

@Josh - I've got Mr. C's 834 comment as a 3... 377.

So that gives us:
2(me)
2(Mr. C)
3(Mr. C)
1(Josh)
5(Mr. C)
4(Mr. C)
1(Josh)
1(Mr. F)

Still looks like a large straight.

Josh S. said...

I guess we can't have a round without me screwing something up. At least it worked out for the best!

J. Steve said...

@ Steve D: I'm feeling a little neglected... (not that it actually matters since I rolled a 4)

Josh S. said...

Wait. Only 3 of Mr. C's rolls count, so it's:

2 (Dittmore)
2 (Mr. C)
3 (Mr. C)
1 (Me)
5 (Mr. C)
1 (Me)
4 (J. Steve)
6 (Mr. F)

Steve Dittmore said...

Sorry J Steve... hard to keep track of who does what. Need multiple tabs open.

Still, looks like a good large straight.

Mr. Customer said...

Definitely large straight. For the sake of voting, I propose we take the 1st instance of each number 1-6.

MR. F said...

It was a complete team effort! Go team!

Eric Karros said...

Sons: 4 3 1

4 3 1 3

Eric Karros said...

4 3 1 3 2

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So we have a straight, right?

Eric Karros said...

4 3 1 3 2 6

Two more chances to roll a 5...

Eric Karros said...

4 3 1 3 2 6 6

Ughh...one more chance. At least I have a small straight licked up.

Jason said...

* steals the Son's 5*

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

You are correct, sir.

Jason said...

5 stolen and apostrophe placed for Dusty's benefit/annoyance.

Mr. Customer said...

Wait a moment.

For voting strategy, I say we take the first die of each number one through five, not through six as I said earlier. Only the first one and the first two should be used if that's how we decide to vote.

Eric Karros said...

^I meant locked up, not licked up.

Oh baby, baby, baby! Got the 5! I see the Readers' Large Straight and raise you one more number in the sequence for an Extra-Large Straight: 1 2 3 4 5 6!! Which of course triggers the unwritten but widely accepted rule that Extra Large Straights are worth 60 points.

FYI I acknowledge that I'm way more excited than the situation warrants.

Mr. Customer said...

I suppose the apostrophe placement could be considered correct, since it's only EK wrangling the dice.

MR. F said...

Ahhhhhh. What happened?

Eric Karros said...

crap, gotta get a poll up before the Readers solidify a strategy...

Eric Karros said...

Actually I guess the Readers got an Extra Large Straight too. I'm not that special after all

Josh S. said...

Sweet, so we both get 60 points, right EK?

Jason said...

If I remember my unwritten rules correctly, only the first Extra Large Straight is worth 60 points so EK is out of luck.

Eric Karros said...

Yeah, alas I believe you are correct Jason. The second one is worth 70 points.

Booyah!

MR. F said...

We can just make up rules as we go along? Nice. I'm learning so much about this game!
