Charity Challenge 2022 - Week 1 Night 4

Welcome back to 2022 O’Sullivan Charity Challenge, where we’re raising money in support of CAMH!

Huge thank you to my sister Amanda for getting our donations started setting us at $35 of $600 goal! If you’d like to donate and support our campaign, you can do so here.

The Choice

Rachel has already won Week 1 so tonight is mostly about fun I think – I’ve decided to go with a fun little dice game that we’ve played before in the challenge. Tonight I’ve chosen Strike!

The Game

Strike is a dice game where you are trying to get matches – the first to lose all of their dice loses the game. The official description:

The game consists of an “arena” (the game box with an insert) and lots of dice. The goal is to be the last player who still has dice. At the beginning, one die is in the arena. The active player throws another die into the arena. If both dice now show the same number, the player must take them out and end the turn. If not, the player can decide to throw in another die (possibly trying to overturn other dice) or end his/her turn. A die which shows the X face is removed from the game, as is any die which falls out of the arena. A player who holds no more dice is eliminated from the game. The last player who still has dice is the winner

The Result

We always play this one best of five at least, and so we did today. I won the first game quite handily, however from there Rachel’s complete domination of week 1 clicked back into gear and she managed to win the next 4 games (we played the extra game just so I could try and prove I could do it – I could not).

I’ll have to try and pick a strategic game tomorrow – I’ve gotta stop Rachel’s domination and get setup for success in week 2 and beyond!
