Wow, won’t be long before BB10k. I expect the fanfare to be somewhat muted compared to MB10k.

Over the next few weeks look for lots of posts from Barney-

“I agree”

“I dunno”

“Wtf”

“Sorry wrong thread”

Don’t forget photos of celebrities whose shit he’d eat a mile of just to get a closer look at the source

Maybe the Android version is a shittier program ... I did have an advantage of getting cleaned up in a 4-player game last week though and remember where they kicked my arse.
Also the inerface is a bit hard to workout if you don't know the game, even after playing it once before I still couldn't work out where you accessed any free re-rolls (or even if you got them in the digital version).

Southernman wrote: Tip from my first and only play last week, the owner of the game got 201 and he went for the areas that gave bonuses but he won handsomely from getting foxes. Also if you do go for foxes make sure you have balanced scoring and not like me who left one section low so made my two foxes worthless.
For the record my score then was 146.


The problem is getting your lowest value up so that the foxes are valuable. I think that it is one of the key strategies.

I’m just now getting to where I can combo reliably in the last couple of rounds...I think there is much to be said for holding back so that in rounds 5 and 6 you can hit those c-c-c-combos rather than taking a quick gain in the first half.

If I were going to rename the game for US I would call it Ganz Schon Motherfucker. Or just God Damn It.

Im my second attempt above I was tracking my lowest score EXCEPT I forgot to look at Blue for some reason and was expecting my three foxes to be tripling my Purple score .... INFURIATING.

Use the +1 when you see something that you can either complete for a decent score or it can trigger something else (two for one), often leaving it to the last round has you at the mercy of the dice and wasting a +1 and/or re-roll.

Took me a couple games to deduce the scoring last night after I downloaded it, but otherwise I think this is a pretty great dice game. I’m teaching a workshop all day but will post my score when I’m all wrapped up...

Oh we are waiting with bated breath...

I just beat my high score!

By one point.

So you equalled my low score ?

I'm just enjoying my time at the front (like the first couple of minutes in qualifying at a Formula 1 race) before the pros download and fire up.

Made the most of my three and a half hours in front with just two of us on the track ....

Update: snuck by into 2nd (of three, but I'll take it) for the moment with 200. At least I'm going up each attempt, just not by enough.

Didn’t read the rules. Have no idea what foxes do. Really don’t have much of a clue beyond figuring out that if you pick a high number first, the rest go to the sin bin.

Third attempt:

Each fox gives you points equal to your lowest scoring area.
