I just printed off the score sheets and brought some dice with me on a business trip and needed to clear up a few things. When it says I must freeze at least 1 die I presume I can freeze more than 1? Also when there are differences between the rules and the score sheets from Eric Gaudet which takes precedent?

Also I got 269 points on my first game, although whether I got it all right or not I'm not sure.

Interesting though that these rules slightly differ from Knizia's original write-up in his 1990 book Neue Taktikspiele mit W├╝rfeln und Karten,.

The requirements for a succesful Run-Up at Long Jump for example were to have a total of up to 9 (in the current version: up to 8). The new approach makes for a tougher challenge which I consider a good thing.

Also, in Shot Put the 'forbidden' number was 6, not 1 as today. However, this is a minor cosmetical change imho as it mainly shifted the maximum score from 48 to 40.
