I’ve been playing Elder Sign a lot lately, so this week’s prompt is about dice. Write a scene, story, or poem in which someone is literally or metaphorically taking a chance and rolling the dice. They could be playing a game like Elder Sign, Zombie Dice or Yahtzee with friends; they might be gambling at a craps table in a Vegas casino or on a street corner. Or they might be testing the whims of Fate in some other fashion: asking a person on a date, applying for a job, buying a lottery ticket, or shoplifting for fun. See where your imagination takes you, and happy writing.
