Wepwawet Dice Game
« on: March 15, 2014, 11:08:49 am »
Em Hotep Everyone!

I did not know any better place to post this, so I hope it's alright as it goes.

Long stroy short, I have some dice here and did not know much to do with it and while I listen to music Wepwawet joined me. And he taught me a fun little game!

It's basically Black Jack. For those who don't know, Black Jack is a card game, you start with two cards and add their value. Then you chose wether or not to draw another card, adding that value, in an attempt to get 21 points.

With dice, it's like that:

First you throw three dice. You add their value and keep it in mind. The dice with the highes value has to remain as it is, the two others are rolled again.
Add their value to the first. Again, the dice with the highest value has to remain and you through the last dice.
Add the value again. Since your goal is to reach 21, you can use those dice that were left behind before to add to your total.
Score works as follows:
19 = 1 point
20 = 2 points
21 = 3 points
all above or below is nothing.

Because my explaination is crap, I'll have an example.

First I through three dice
5 2 2
First sum: 9

the dice showing 5 remains, the other two are thrown anew.

5 1
Second sum: 6
total: 15

again the highes value is 5, this dice remains, the last dice is thrown anew.

2
total: 17

17 is too low to make a score, but I could add the values from the two dice that remained during the game. Sadly, both of them have a five, which would give me a 22, which is too high to score.

It's a game of luck, but because you have a way to make scores you can play it with others as well. I enjoy it, also because you train your brain a little with all the adding and remembering of numbers. And, most of all, you just need three dice! Maybe pen and paper, if you like. Works perfectly for trabeling.

I really hope you enjoy the game as well. More importantly, I hope the game rules were comprehendable. ^^" Please, if anyone went through this and didn't understand it, tell me. I'd write a better instruction, including pictures and stuff, if necessary.

Edit: If you have more than one dice of the highest value, you need to save only one and can use the other(s) for the next throw. :)
Second Edit: If you reach 21 after the second throw, the game is already won and you do not need to continue rolling.

That is amazing! I find He loves blackjack in general (maybe something to do with the similarities between the words blackjack and jackal). With His love of dice I think a dice version of blackjack would be fun.

That's exactly what I felt when he showed me the game and still experience when playing the game. ^^ I share the joy for dice, and for cards too, though until now I didn't know he liked the real Black Jack game in general. Glad you like it! So my explaination makes sense after all :D

Could you explain what you mean by using the other dice at the end for the final score? :)

Do you mean to two 5 value throws that were saved?

Clever! This may be something to try soon. Dad loves games of chance. And I am partial to poker myself. :)

Exactly! Two dice were saved during the game, which both had a value of five, and those I meant you can use as some sort of joker if the total isn't high enough. *nod*

Glad to hear that! Poker is a fine game as well, but, you see, I happen to know a... small but sufficiant amount of card games I can play alone and with others, though I know only a few games you play with dice (except board games and P&P). Ohww, well, it feels so great you called it clever X3

Well I enjoy smoking my Pipe and drinking a glass of Vodka instead. XD Though I preferred rum while I was able to digest it. ^^

Em hotep

I appologize for reposting, but I thought of a some-what extra rule.

I thought of games against one another, where everyone rolles their dice and highest total below 21 wins. Now what if there is more than one 21?

I say, the one who gets the 21 with the least amount of rolls and 'jokers' wins. In that sense, the order would be:

Reching 21 points on:
second throw
third throw withour joker
third throw with one joker
third throw with both jokers

I think that is pretty obvious, but as writer of this thread I found it worth posting. :) Hope all agree and enjoy.

Senebty

Edit:
Ok now what IF even then a draw occurs? It is a game of dice. I can imagine quite an amount of rules how to make that one role worth more than the other. But this IS a game of dice, if your opponent with his dice has the exact same roll as you, there's no helping it.
So, if this happens during a game that is not merely for fun but there is that big pile of money on the table and the very last competitors roll the very same roll each, causing a draw, my personal and traditional favourite ways of handling that situation would be:
- reroll
- split loot
- shoot out
