Yeah, I'd refuse to play any game where the very rules require you to cheat. Although, that might be an interesting concept - a game with a long list of rules that you are expected to break...

"There are 10 types of people in this world, those who know binary, and those who dont " -ThinkGeek.com nice intructable, like the idea of applying binary, to games:) Maybe there should be a language of binary and HEX.....

What are the two random objects for? *confused*

author
zupperzipper made it!(author)2008-05-22

The objects are the things you move during the game. (I think in English they are called "the pawns") P.S. Sorry for the bad English!!!

Pawns are the front line in a game of chess. I'd probably call these objects "counters" or "pieces" - as in "Your piece moves 3 on that turn" Nice little game for when travelling or whatever. You could use the squares on a bit of carpet, or even scribble on a page of square paper.

Sounds like fun. So, do you only throw coin at a time? Otherwise, I'd always claim the 1s to be most significant and the 0s to be least significant.

I'd use three denominations of coins, so the 10 is the MSB, the 5 the middle and the 1 the LSB. Or throw one at a time, either way.

author

You can do that. But I always throw them 1 at a time...
