This Tuesday brings with it Zilch. Its a fun dice game that's rather addictive. If you win 3 games, you'll be rewarded with the R2 version of Phoebe (most likely along with the easy and medium badges).
The game itself is rather like Yatzee but with 6 dice. You get points based on what you roll. Once you have 300 points, you'll be given the option to bank the points and end your turn...or you could keep rolling and try to get a better score. Be warned, however if you don't score any points on a roll you get a Zilch and your turn ends. 3 Zilches in a row and you lose 500 points. Since the game is random, I can only give you some tips on how to win some easy matches:
- Unless facing a third Zilch, keep going if your score is under 500. The risk is well worth the reward.
- Along the same lines of the above tip, keep in mind that you get a free roll if you use all your dice. This can lead to very high scoring turns, just kow when to bank.
- Always use the least dice possible to make the most points, this gives you more dice to rol and thus more chance to get more points.
By the way, there's a Loot Ticket challenge going on. Play some Last Stand 2, and if you can collect 3 survivors, you'll grab yourself a chance to win an XBOX 360 and a copy of Left 4 Dead.
Lots to do this week, so get to it!
