Classic Rock Craps

This is my 50th article so I am going a little off topic here. The only connection I can make is we came up with this game while we were building my house (and home theater).

My drywallers literally melted my radio with one of their work lights. It still worked but the dial was stuck on one station. KZOK 102.5, a classic rock station out of Seattle. Now I like the station and the genre well enough but when you are stuck on just this station you realize how limited their play list is. So we came up with Classic Rock Craps.

In regular craps you are betting on a number you want to see rolled before the next 7 is rolled, since 7 is the most likely number to be rolled. In Classic Rock Craps you are betting on a band that will come up before the next BEatles songs, since the Beatles are the most likely band to come up.

So everybody who is working with you picks a band, ZZ Top, The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, etc. If your band comes up before the Beatles you get a point and get to pick another band. When the Beatles come up all bets are off and you tally your score. The fun thing about this game is it actually makes it interesting to listen to these songs you have heard a million times. It is also great for construction since everybody in earshot of the radio can play.

So give it a go and let me know if you come up with any variations.

Post number 50!!!
