Well, we’ve finished up the latest 2 week game stint. This was a game based in a roll of the die. A single die, a single roll. The value it returns determines what’s going to happen, from a task to “pampering” to O’s to edging to setting a window for an O for me.
It’s a weird thing – it’s odd to have zero control and just… toss that old die out there and hope for something good. In this case, 4.
I had to get 4 4’s over a 2 week period. That means every 2 or 3 days, needed to be another 4. Or, if you roll a 4, you get to roll again, so it would be keen to get more than one in a day.
“Really keen” and “reality” don’t jibe of course. I ended up at 3. Short of the magical 4. So here I am, writing this post, adding a picture to it… all as part of my closing task. There was a surprisingly NOT statistically varied result to the numbers. The most common number was 6 (pampering) and the least common were 1 and 3. 1 was 10 minutes of edging. 3 was a story post.
So, it continues. I’ve been given the new rules, the new approach for the next round. I’m not sure the odds are any more in my favor – we’re doubling the dice to 2, keeping only 1 number as “helpful” (I use the term selfishly) and keeping the term stagnant.
I can see you shaking your head now. “Nope.” Is all that comes to mind.
Yep. Right there with you.
