So, there it is. Episode two. Let me start with Bunco, because I know that not everyone knows what it is. Bunco is a social dice game involving 100% luck and no skill. Women in our neighborhood take turns as the Bunco hostess — providing snacks and refreshments. The object of the game is to accumulate points and to roll certain combinations. The game is played in six rounds. In each round, you have to get the dice to match the number of the round. For example, if it is round one and you roll a one, you get one point. If you get two ones, you get two points, etc. If you get three one's on a single roll in round one you get a bunco worth 21 points. If you get three of a kind in any other number in round one you get trips and earn 5 points. It is just an excuse to get all the woman in the neighborhood together. It is the one time a month they get to leave the kids and husband at home and have a little mommy time.
