The Game III

No sooner did I finish the rules, the game took a turn for
the worst. I threw the dice and watched helplessly as they
rolled across the board, off the table, and got lost
somewhere on the floor. I sat and tried to play my card and
could not find the rules to fit.

Rule after rule goes through my mind but who's rules are
they. Can I honestly say that one man's rule can govern
another's game. It takes two to play but only one to lose.

I'm not willing to let the game end this early in the
round. I'm not willing to take the blame for letting it
end. I need to play my card and find the dice. Let them
roll again. There are no do-overs. There are no try agains.
I rolled, now I need to play and relinquish my turn. Maybe
the next roll will get the game going again.

Throw easy.

Throw carefully.
