    If any are interested, I'm thinking of maybe a $10 or $20 buy-in, equal, agreed upon amount for all players.

    We can organize doing this in a PM. One of us can collect the money, and then deliver the total amount to the winner, the player who has not lost all and who has the most "dollars" at the end of the session.

    Bets will be indicated by players before the roll. Bets will be recorded before the roll, which will be made by another one of us at home while online. Perhaps the "shooter" should not be in the tournament, but I would trust whoever does it so that if he wanted to also play that is OK.

    If ten of us buy-in at $20, the winner gets what amounts to being a decent sized winner, and doesn't even need to get out of his underwear or go out into the winter weather to the casino.

    Maybe $1 min bet, 10x odds max, $20 max bet.

    Any players? If so, perhaps we can shoot for signing in before 8PM eastern tomorrow and arrange the PM get together at that time.

    Just respond to this thread to say I'm in. We will need to decide who collects buy-ins and who rolls the dice.

    This might have legal problems. TD should know, he's some kind of a cop. :)

    We need a bit more info KJ4.

    1. How long will the session last?
    2. Do we have to play in our underwear?

    And finally I nominate the duck to be the shooter provided he does not use opaque dice.

    Shall we say 2 hrs?

    Underwear are optional.

    If the baron wants the job it is his, and we will stipulate that blue, opaque dice are not to be used.

    I had forgotten about your not being in the winter season at present NA, so it is not likely you will in the mix wearing long underwear.

    I would be honored to "accept"< ( FredP teached me this word) the job as "STICK" :) I don't want to bet, and would prefer if I didn't know the bets, until after the roll, :cool: just in case, FredP gets HOT! :D

    That's reasonable. But there needs to be at least 4 spinners in the session to call it a fair game.

    Hey, laugh if you must, but lack of spinners, is a pretty "sure-fire" indicator, that something is not on the "up and up" with the dice. This was my discovery alone, I've never heard anybody else mention it. I had mentioned it, to only a handful of player, that I thought worthy, until I brought it up on this board. Strangely, not one single player, thought it a significant observation, though ONE thought it unique, and It indicated that I was a new "entity" on this forum. :confused: I found It hard to believe, that all were not "dumbfounded",by my discovery, or in retrospect, maybe they were. :D When I asked myself WHY, I could only come up with one answer. :cool: In any case, I'll search for a landing surface, that is conducive to spinners, and will make known, any that are produced. With any luck, I may even be able manufacture, the very rare "double spinner", which I'm sure, would delight, all of the players, except of course, FredP. :)

    Even with my celebrity status, this thread is not drawing much action. :confused: If any of you guys needs to borrow the $20, don't be ashamed to ask me, though 777 probably offers a lower fee. :)

    Thought we might have a few players, but was wrong about that. Oh well, 2021 is another year, and it'll be here soon.

    I'm going to put up an unrelated poll, if I can determine how to do, and I don't even have a cell phone, let alone know how to use one. :confused:

    Need to schedule this out a few days at least. Give people time to find it. Start after the 1st of the year?

    OK, let's plan on doing this on Sat or Sun Jan 2 or 3.

    Me, the baron, and possibly NA are the only players thus far. Need at least 5 players to make it interesting/worthwhile.

    I assume you are also in Setting.
