Dice Hog Day 2018

February 3rd, 2018
Dice Hog Day

The Dice Hog got up early, dressed up like a lumberjack, grabbed a pair of dice, and trekked off into the wild to do his thing: predict the end of winter. He was very disappointed that there was no snow to romp in; all he could find was this minuscule iced puddle. This put him in a funk and it took a little coaxing to give the old dice a roll…  Before rolling, he crossed his tentacles then shouted in his shrill little voice “Come on winter! Baby needs a new pair of snowboots!” And now, as per the official Dice Hog Day rules noted below, we must wait seven days until we find out what he rolled.



On Feb 3, the day after those other hogs get it wrong, our Dice Hog appears and rolls a pair of dice into the wild. He then immediately goes back into his hide-out. A week later, he re-emerges to find them and follows these rules:

1. Dice must stay where they land for seven days, untouched.

2. When there is no snow on them whatsoever, none, the dice result is multiplied by two. Two special rules apply to this result (it wouldn’t be very GameWicky if we didn’t have some “hot numbers”):

Snake Eyes (1,1) – Winter is officially over and you can put the snow shovels away immediately.

Boxcars (6, 6) – Uh Oh! There’s probably more snow coming. Bring dice back inside and wait for next storm. Then repeat process as if it is Feb 3 all over again.

Stay tuned for this year’s results!
