I have my own dice game that I play with a Spongebob Squarepants cup from Daiso and two dice. It’s an incentive to participate in class. It’s called…

Dais Geim 다이스 게임.

if you roll:

an 8, you roll again. If you roll 3 consecutive 8s you get 8 stars (one sticker per 3 stars) . So far three have rolled 2 consecutive 8s but none has rolled a triple 8.

snake-eyes or boxcars gets you three stars or one sticker

3,5, 10, or an 11 gets you a double star.

a 6 gets you a single star.

a 7 gets you a sarcastic “lucky 7!” and no star.

a four gets you a minus star (I only use this when I call it deinja dais as opposed to happee dais).

a 9 gets you get a nein!

and nothing.
