I think you mean a "sheet" of paper. :)
Really?? wow!!! ""We have a "be nice" comment policy. Please be positive and constructive with your comments """
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...
I guess you haven't heard of Nomic.

"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.....
Woof! I've heard of that before...

What are the two random objects for? *confused*
zupperzipper (author)  aliceownsj005 years ago
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.
PKM chadsly5 years ago
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.

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