Fool's 12th Night!

Poster: EoganOg@aol.com

Greetings an wel mot, everichon!

I would like to invite those of you who plan on beeing FOOLhardy enough to
venture to Hindscroft's Fool's 12th Night to participate in the gaming that I,
Eogan Og, will be running.  All during the day there will be an ongoing game
of Gluckshaus, the "House of Luck."  This is a gambling game that dates to
13th century Germany and was very popular among the daring, desperate, and
drunken!  For those of you who are interested, here are the simple rules:
The game board is divided up into squares containing these numbers: 2, 3, 5,
6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12.  Each person, upon signing up, will recieve a number
of tokens to serve as coins.  These are your monies for the day.  To play:
roll two dice.  Add the numbers.  Find the number on the board.  If there is a
coin there, take that coin.  If there is no coin there, place one of your own.
It's that simple.  There are only 4 special numbers.  The first is the 4.
There is no 4 on the board.  If you roll that, you loose your turn.  You do
not gain any mony, nor do you loose any.  The next number is the 7.  This is
Hoch Zeit, the Wedding.  You never gain money at the wedding.  You only loose.
So if you roll the 7 and there is already money there, you still add more of
your own.  This is where the big bucks pile up.  The next number is the 2.
This is Gluck Swien, the Lucky Pig.  If you roll the Lucky Pig, you get to
take all the money on the board, EXCEPT for that on the 7.  The last special
number is the 12, Konig, the King.  If you are the King you get to take all
money on the board, INCLUDING what is on the 7.  Is good to be the king!  And
that's it.  That's all there is to play.  The table will be open all day and
you may come and go from the table as your please.  At the end of the day we
will recall all tokens and the one with the most wins. . . A PRIZE!!!!!
There will also be other games available to play, strategy games, gambling
games, etc, for your amuzement.  So come all, come out, play and be silly!
Once again, this is at Fool's 12th Night in Hindscroft, Sat, Jan 23.
Yours aye in foolishness,
Eogan Og
