Gambler's Folly

Gambler's Folly or Last Chance is a dice game designed played sometimes played on the frontier as a last chance to get out of debt. Mostly it results in the debtor plummeting deeper and deeper in debt.

Gambler's Folly is usually played only with the desperate or addicted gamblers due to the "unfair" probabilities involved. Especially so when considering the fact that the creditor decides when the game stops.

The Rules:
The player of Gambler's Folly rolls two regular six-sided dice.
He wins and halves his debt if he rolls a six on any die.
He also wins if he rolls doubles.
If he rolls double sixes his debt is paid in full.
If he loses, his debt doubles.
