Updates:  Can you believe it?  My kids only asked for iPad only on last Friday!  That is when both myself and my wife have to go for our dinner appointment, and we let the kids spent some time on iPad.  It seems that they have not asked for iPad for a long time.  And in the last two weeks, I believe they only touched iPad 3 times in 14 days.  That is very good and it is a proof that you can get rid of the iPad addiction for your kids.  I will keep up this good work, and thru introduction of new board games or dice games every 1-2 weeks.  My kids enjoyed it very much!

Today, I introduced the kids to Left Center Right Dice Game.  I often call it “Left Right Center”.

It is a very simple Dice Game.  There are 4 different symbol on the dice.

L – means pass your chip to the player sitting on your left.

R – means pass your chip to the player sitting on your right.

C – means pass your chip to the centre pool.  This is the winning pot of money.  The last player who still have chip left will win this pot of money (chips).

Black Dot – do nothing

Simple enough?

If you have only 2 chips left, you only roll 2 dices.

If you left with 1 chip, you roll 1 dice.

If you do not have enough chips, open a pack of peanuts and play with peanuts.

Let’s play!

To start the game, you must have at least 3 players.

And each player are given 3 chips.

#1 – Kay’s turn.  He rolled 2x R, means, he has to give 2 chips to the person sitting on his right.

So, he gave two chops to Jay Jay who is sitting on his right hand side.

I always asked the kid to use his RIGHT hand to give the chip to the person who is sitting on his right.  Easy enough?

#2 – It’s my turn.  And I rolled 2x R.  So, I need to give 2x Chips to Kay Kay.

#3 – It is Jay’s turn.  So, you play in clockwise direction.

Jay rolled 1x L.  So, he has to give 1 chip to Kay.

#4 – Kay Kay rolled 3x black dots.  So, do nothing for his turn.

#5 – I rolled a single dice as I left with only 1 chip.  And I rolled a “R”.  So, I have to give my last chip to Kay.

After I lose all the chip, I am still playing.

Because either player can end up give me some chips back too.

If it is my turn and I have no chip, then, I simply pass the dice to the next player as I don’t need to roll the dice.

#6 – Finally, some one rolled a “C”.  And he placed 1x chip in the center pool.

#7 – Kay Kay rolled a “L”.

See, I am back to alive again.  I gain 1x chip from Kay Kay.

#8 – As I only have 1 chip left, I get to roll only 1 dice.  And “C” where I will need to place 1 chip in the centre pool.

#9 – Jay rolled 2x “C”.  So, he has to place the 2x chips in the center pool.

#10 – Kay Kay also place 2x chips into the center pool by rolling 2x “C”.

#11 – I have no chip, so skipped me.  It’s Jay’s turn.  And he rolled a “Dot”.  Where he do nothing.

#12 – Kay Kay also very lucky and threw 2x “Dot”.  Means nothing happened.

#13 – After thirteen turns, Jay rolled a “C” and placed his last chip in the centre pool.

Kay Kay won 7 chips as he take away his winning from the centre pool.  He is left with 2 chips, which he returned back for the next game.

Next round, I won 8x chips.

And at the 3rd round, Kay Kay won another 7x chips.

So, all together, Kay Kay is the champion.

As you can see, Kay Kay is the clear winner.

The game mechanic is very simple and easy to understand.

He has been winning all the board games in style.

HaHaHa… I still got a lot of board games to cover.  I will make sure my kids love to play board games.  It is a social games, and if he can play with his friends from time to time, all of the kids will enjoy the games.
