Tonight is Bunco, an excuse to get together with friends, eat and drink and be merry. For those who don't know, Bunco is a dice game. There are three tables with three die at each table. There are twelve players divided among the three tables. Each round, you try to roll as many of the number for that round as you can before the head table hits 21. The number changes each round, starting at one and ending at six. We play three sets of six rounds and whoever has the highest score at the end of the game wins. We each put in $10 and the winner takes it all home. The person with the last Bunco (three of a kind of the number you're rolling) gets a door prize. Everyone brings food to share and their own drink.
There are many variations on how to split the money, who brings what and all. The main thing is it's fun and a great reason to get out of the house!
