Eggs and Robbers!!

FNLinux.com, the Official Website for the new hit dice game “Eggs And Robbers”!

NOTE TO FELLOW FNL’lings- please feel free to Edit this to add your thoughts and variations:
Story Setup:

You are walking through the dangerous forest, collecting Valuable eggs. You must collect 12 of them. Beware the Robber and the Sneak(pickpocket). The Robber will attack you and if you don’t have your shield up, he cuts one of your hands. You only have 2 hands. If BOTH of your hands get cut by the Robber, then you <drop your basket of eggs> and lose half of them.
There is no protection against the Sneaks, for a Sneak is Sneaky. The Sneaks will steal (pickpocket) any eggs you have JUST FOUND (just rolled) this dice roll.

Be the first of your friends to get a dozen eggs.

Name: RobberDice or MuggerDice or… (something without dice in the name)..
Variations: RD – Pirates!, RD – Mideval, RD – Space, RD – Noir, RD – City, RD – Country
FNL Drinkablity score = 6/6 = this should be a simple, fun game, which you can play smashed.
components:

1- robber die D6. 2side=1 sword, 2side=2 sword, 2side=0 sword

player dice (how many?). sides: coin(1or2coins per side), pickpocket/cutpurse(dagger?), anti-robber(Shield)

play:

Starting:

 

Variation 1:
Roll 3 player dice. Goal=get coins. pickpocket/cutpurse steals/negates any coins you have rolled.
Robber(sword(s)):2 swords=end turn (either additive or just when you get 2X. or maybe if you roll 1X robbersword and you also roll 1x antirobberShield then the robber is cancelled?
–end turn on:
OR
1) roll 2X robber at once.
OR
2) roll 1X robber dice and then roll another 1x robber dice(this would entail having to keep track of how many robs you have…
OR
3)
OR

Ideas:
-Roll 3 player dice. Goal=get coins. pickpocket steals/negates ANY coins you have accumulated so far.
-when you get 2 robber swords (either total or at once) you loose Half of the coins you have accumulated. Robbers don’t give change, so round down, i.e. 7 * .5 = 3 (not 3.5) –This is the incentive to calculate the risk you are taking by continuing.
– possibly, change the robber dice to only have 0 or 1 sword on them- that way you have a bit more chance of continuing to play (but I don’t want it to look like URB’s game)

More Notes from July:

dice containers: Plastic easter eggs. An egg in a basket (to strengthen the theme of the basket being dropped when attacked twice.). a cardboard egg shaped box (3-4 inches across and 6 inches deep. a chicken shaped standing cardboard box (3d chicken 6-8inches tall, split in the middle along the horizontal plane with dice and rules inside of it.

story: you are walking through the dangerous forest, collecting Valuable eggs. You must collect 12 of them. Robber, pickpocket,

END Egg: On one side of the Robber Die is the “END Egg”. The end egg symbol should be two halves of a broken egg. Possibly with the word END written in between them. This indicates that you have dropped an egg and your turn is now over. Pass the dice to the left.

Why does 2 sword attacks mean drop half your eggs? you have 2 hands. when you get attacked 1x you get hit in 1 hand. you still have 1 arm to hold the basket and shield. if you get sworded 2x them both of your hands are hit and you drop the basket, losing 1/2 of your eggs.

Symbols: robber=(sword),  pickpocket/sneak?=hand in a pinching form or hand in an OK form
