I received this game as a child in the 70's. At the time the game didn't seem like it would be fun to play. If I remember right, the instructions did not make sense? It wound up getting tossed.

Now that I'm older, maybe it would appeal to me now?

You should definately give this another try. Yes you are tossing dice over & over but I happen to enjoy that. There is also the push-your-luck side of things to it. If you can find a cheap copy, buy it. if you don't like it you can also put on ebay or sell it here.

Ok, I'll keep my eyes open for a copy and give it a try.

Thanks for the welcome!

While you are waiting to find a physical copy, you can try the "Roll or Don't" computer implementation of the game found in the links section of the game.

I'd recommend against the online version. Can't Stop is fun in person but dire online. Feels like a slot machine with no chance of money coming out of it.

Yeah, the game is a lot of fun if you enjoy "press your luck"-style games.

You know, I never played a press-your-luck game; I don't know of any off-hand to be honest. But it sounds like fun.

I haven't had a chance to sit down and play the online version of Can't Stop, but I suppose I will find out if I like that kind of game or not when I do.

As Sue said, playing online probably won't give you the best taste for it. I've never played online, but it has to much more exciting face-to-face, with the other players anxious to see what your next roll will be, and cheering either for or against you...

Yeah, I didn't see Sue's comment before. I'll keep both of your thoughts in mind though when I give the online version a try.

It is less cheering for you or against you, but mocking you for your spinelessness in stopping.
