For the bomb pictured here, can you help me understand...
1). Let's say I place a red 3 on the left space first and then a red 5 in the middle. Then must the right one be red or a 5?
2) Now how about if I place a red 3 on the left and then a green 1 on the right. Does that mean the middle one would have to match the color or number of the left one and the right one? (So in essence I'd be matching the color of one and number of the other)
Thanks for the help. This is a fun game!

Number 2 is correct: in your example you must place a green 3 in the center.
But in this card is better to start with the center and then the sides.

1) the one on the right would have to be a Red die with any number
2) No, it's not the number of one and the color of the other, it's the same number of the die on the left and the same color of the die on the right, you can't do it reversed so, If you have a red 3 on the left and a green 1 on the right then the middle would have to be a Green 3 (THIS IS NOT THE COMPLETE CORRECT REPLY SEE BELLOW THE REPLY FROM Carrie K)

but I can spout off obscure rules to all sorts of game like nobody's business!

This is a fun game! 1. You can't place a red 3 on the left and a red 5 in the middle. The left and middle dice must be the same number while the middle and right dice must be the same color.
2. As previously stated, the middle would have to be a green 3.

Actually... The middle symbol, meaning "number OR color", is relevant to both the leftmost and the rightmost spaces. So...
1) It would be legal to place a red 3 on the left space, then a red 5 on the middle (because you are matching either number or color), but the final space must then be a red die to match the color of the middle die, because that would be the symbol remaining uncovered. HOWEVER, if you placed dice in the opposite order (right to left), you could place a red 3 on the rightmost space, then match number or color on the middle space. Say you placed a red 5. Now the leftmost space would have to be a 5 of any color, matching the number of the middle die because the number symbol is the last uncovered symbol. It all depends on which order you place the dice in. You don't need to remember the already covered symbols. This brings me to the second question.
2) If you placed a red 3 on the left and a green 1 on the right, your middle die would have to be EITHER a red 1 or a green 3 in order to meet both requirements.
Happy strategizing!!

I think Carrie is correct on all counts
