Welcome back to one of my old games, Roll A Dozen! Due to some personal reasons, i was unable to keep the original Ra12 game alive. Thus, I have created a new thread to continue the game!

Once again, here are the objectives:

Objective:

- Players must reach exactly 12 to win.

How to Play:

- A six-sided die is used.
- The player must roll the die. If an even number is used (e.g, 2, 4, 6),
you add that number to the previous rolled number.
- If an odd number is rolled (1, 3, 5) you subtract that amount from the
previous number.
- A new count always begins with the number 1.
- The player who restarts the count must roll the dice and add/subtract the
resulting number from 1.
- The count must be restarted if:
- The count reaches zero or goes into negative numbers.
- A player rolls the same number as the previous poster.

Example:
P1: 1 (dice rolled 4) 1+4=5
P2: 5 (dice rolled 2) 5+2=7
P1: 7 (dice rolled 3) 7-3=4
P3: 4 (dice rolled 3) restart

Things to Remember:

- You can back-to-back post! Just don't post three times in a row.

Once a successful count has been reached, please notify me in my profile comments.

Now, let's begin!

I was inspired and wrote the game in Python:
import random
count=1
posts=0
lastnumber=7
roll=0
while count !=12:
print "Current count is: " + count.__str__()
roll = random.randint(1,6)
print "You rolled a " + roll.__str__()

if roll % 2 == 0:
print count.__str__() + " + "+roll.__str__()+ " = "+(count+roll).__str__()
count += roll
else:
print count.__str__() + " - " + roll.__str__() + " = " + (count - roll).__str__()
count -= roll

posts += 1

print "New count is %s"%count
if roll == lastnumber:
count = 1
posts = 0
lastnumber = 7
print "Ut oh, you rolled the same number twice. Reset. "

if count > 0:
x=12
else:
count = 1
posts = 0
lastnumber = 7
print "Went negative, reset. "
lastnumber=roll
print
print "You won! It took %s posts to get to 12." %posts

11. Nice game. I'd compile it to VB, but I'm too lazy. Why is there lastnumber=7 ?
1d6=6
11+6=17

@sciller45 You miscalculated that one man.

17. @PLGuy I use that as a reset, although using 0 would make more sense.
1d6=2
17+2=19

2 = 1d6

19. Miscalculated it? How? I'm counting my throw it would go: 16 - 5 (11) - 1 (10) + 2 And you have 12!
1d6=3
19 - 3 = 16

DICE RESULTS
3 = 1d6

17. If only.... Getting a 5 would mean getting to 12, except for the fact that it would be two 5's in a row. :|
1d6=5

Double 5's: Restart.
