Okay. Remember this game? Mansion, Apartment, Shack House.
Awesome. Used to play it for ages in class (and in the hallways), with random names - often celebrities - and even though we really didn't care what the results were. And we knew how it worked, but were surprised anyway!

Well, I found it randomly online. Today's options are confusing though... Were there always more than one result?
Still, apparently I'm going to be news or sports producer, drive a Versa or a motorcycle that is blue, green or yellow. Live in an mansion, shack or house in Tampa, Montreal, or Finland... See why this is confusing?

Then there's another site that randomizes the results. They tell me I'll be a news producer, drive a Versa, marry Ryan and live in Montreal. Somehow, I don't expect that to happen!

Get me a pen and paper. I'm doing this the old fashioned way!

Hey there, this isn't actually Anonymous. It's Kullkullan from Habs I/O. For whatever reason I'm getting an error when I try to create a Google account. Anyways....

I didn't know that you had your own personal blog, and although I am unfamiliar with the "MASH" game, iam looking forward to reading the rest of your blog!

As far as games go, I prefer playing blackjack with the Bell Center clock during Habs games.

I'll read the rest of your blog and make a more substantial (perhaps intellectual) reply later.

It's odd that you're getting problems creating a google account. If you email me, I can send you a Gmail invitation, and that should get you in ;)

Thanks Naila (I finally typed your name minus the H that I always seem to add. I really don't know why i do that lol)

I still have your email addy from short exchanges regarding the habs summit, and worse case scenario I will take you up on the gmail invite, might be easier.

My Explorer has been acting up with certain .dll errors, and add-on errors so....I'd rather fix that first.

If that doesn't work, I'll email you and you can add me on here :)

BTW, if you haven't played Bell Center BlackJack....you HAVE to! You can do it while watching on RDS as well.

You MUST explain the rules to me!!

Also, .dll errors suck. Too bad you can't uninstall IE. You could try deleting all the updates and re-updating...

I'm actually getting used to that handle!

Bell Center Clock Black Jack Rules!

First off, you need to have 2 players ;) Once you have at least 2 players, then, well, it's up to you to decide what you are betting. Could be cash, could be a drink, could be you have to do my laundry for a week.

Now, you decide who is the house, and who is the player. Player goes first. At the first stoppage of the game, you look at the last digit on the clock. Let's say for example, it is a 9. (18:59) So, Player's first card is a 9.

Houses' turn, play stops at 18:44. Houses' first card is a 4. Players turn, clock stops at 17:38. Players card is an 8, added to 9, Player now has 17. Houses' turn, clock stops at 17:00. 0 counts as 10, so House has 14. Now the fun begins. Player can choose to pass and not use the next stoppage in play. House HAS to beat Players' 17 so, the next stoppage is 14:58. House, with 14, adds an 8 and busts at 22. Player wins.

A difference from regular BlackJack is that you alternate turns, rather than 'hit' as consecutively as you want. There are no 'Aces'. Last digit value is worth its face value.

Bonus: If ever, on the opening turn, the clock stops at xx:21? That player wins Double the original bet. So be careful what you bet :)
