    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.

    Oops you are right... Sorry for the bad English! (I am from Belgium)

    ja, nice job,to easy,its fun.

    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.

    Oh, thanks for making the correction! I've learned something new today! :-)

    Thank you for making this instructable, because i would never have gone out and learned binary without a reason. the game was fun too. my piece of candy always beats my game boy cartridge. =) very nice ible

    the game of the nerd-goose

    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.
