 Friday saw me hosting a dark age skirmish here- 

P. continued to throw an inordinate amount of ones on d6 . As one who taught probability in primary school in maths ( using a throw d6  a hundred times experiment ) I just cannot believe how many ones he threw not to mention the number of fives and sixes l threw as opposed throws ! A fun game ensued.

Some splendid art on hoardings cinema Edinburgh-


  1. Your summary of the dice rolling indicates a fun game....for you! Fir your opponent, maybe not so much....mais, c'est la guerre, n'est pas?

  2. Fantastic game thanks for sharing Quinn

  3. I never knew that about the unicorn. I just remember that little rhyme as a kid about the lion and the unicorn fighting for the crown. Wouldn’t have though that the chains was meant to represent enslavement given the Stuart’s being a Scottish dynasty.

  4. Ha-ha! Sounds like my dice-rolling! Glad fun was had!
