Do you want to get rich? You have just 60 seconds to roll the dice and grab the cash in this fast paced game. Beat the timer and make your fortune!
This is a really ridiculous game. However, it is cheap and features a great timing device, which makes it good value for money. Whether you like the game is neither here nor there, but this is how it works.The game is played over three rounds and each person rolls 6 dice as fast as possible. For each unique die (such as a 20) the player grabs a note of the correct denomination from the pile in the centre of the table. You then make a mental check to see whether you are inside the time for that round. (It starts with 10 seconds, then 20 and finally 30 for the last round.) If you think you are, you re-roll the dice and grab more money. When you've had enough (or think the time is up) you say "stop" and the player on your left with the timing device stops the clock. If you exactly match the time for the round you get a 60 bonus. If you do not you get a penalty of 20 per second over the allotted time or 10 per second under the allotted time. As one side of each die shows a +5 seconds bonus, you can set this die aside and get more time. The game is one of those where you are under pressure (if you play this type of game seriously). If you do not, it's good for laughs but once played, the novelty is lost. However, it could be good for parties for breaking the ice. Light and amusing.
