How to play One Hundred

Scott and I went to a Christmas party last year where we enjoyed spending time with our friends, eating (of course), and playing games.  We learned a new game that evening, a game called One Hundred.  

 All you need to play the game is a piece of paper for each player, one die, and one pencil. Each player gets a piece of paper, the pencil is left in the middle of the table.  The first player picks up the die and rolls it, trying to roll a six.  If that player doesn't roll a six, they pass the die to the next player, who rolls, hoping for a six.  The die is passed around the table to each player, until someone finally rolls a six.  That person then grabs the pencil and starts writing 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8... on their piece of paper.  All the other players continue to madly roll the die, until one of them rolls a six and grabs the pencil from the player writing numbers and starts writing from 1-100 on their paper.  Keep rolling the die and passing it around until someone else rolls a six, and so on, and so on, until someone finally manages to write up to 100 on their paper.  (Every time you get the pencil, just continue on from where you left off.  Don't start at one again.)

This game is rowdy and noisy, and lots of fun.  Sometimes just as you get the pencil, the very next person rolls a six and grabs it from you before you've even had a chance to write a single number down!  My family really likes to play this game and it always ends with lots of laughter and groans.  Try it, you'll like it!
