House rules

This one is from Carole, my wife and writing partner and is based on a "house rule" played with the boys....

The agreed unwritten house rule- All dice have to be rolled/thrown into a box to avoid (A) Repeat of the mayhem caused in an early game when over enthusiasm sent some scything through the ranks of figures set out on the table* and (B) Avoid any potential for disagreement over what the score on the uppermost die face actually is when its laying underneath the bookcase or any other item of heavy furniture. Any that bounce out or miss the box are rethrown, whether they would have succeeded or not**.

*    The boys were very young and this game was early in their indoctrination into the gaming hobby
 ** Rebounds back into the box are very rare, but always applauded and accepted!
