When your opponent has to take a picture, it's bad. When a guy from another table comes over to take a picture, it's really bad. shake

Yelling, "Hey, you gotta come see this!" is a hint too.

The classiest way is quietly, in a detached manner and a confident tone of voice, and only to people who stroll over to your table and observe that your opponent seems to be winning. Then, you simply tell them that he's been rolling well.

It's considered poor form to shout to the whole auditorium, "YOU'RE JUST ROLLING WELL! HOW ELSE COULD YOU POSSIBLY BE WINNING?!" That is not the classy way to tell when your opponent has been rolling well.

By the way: what game is this in the picture?

The picture looks like a WWI block game.

You know your opponent is rolling well when they start to apologize for their rolls ...

Worst die roll in the history of boardgaming was in a game of Arkham Horror at a friend's house 5 years ago. My friend needed one and only one hit. Just one singular 5 or 6 on one d6 and the monster dies. He rolled 16 dice and didn't get a single hit! 16 dice and he couldn't roll a single 5 or 6. The roll has become legend here in Kansas City.

Sounds dramatic indeed!

I see that it is a roughly one-in-a-thousand event:

(2 / 3) ^ 16 = 0.00152243884034744

...When your host of F-14s is shot down by a flock of Yak-38s. Happened to a friend of mine. I did the rolling. Game was The Hunt for Red October.


I too am curious about what game that is you're playing!
