Come on Six
   Any person in the group may start to roll the dice. The
    object is to roll a six.
   Each person will get one opportunity each go around to
    roll the dice. If the person does not roll a six, then the
    dice is passed over to the next person. This continues
    until someone rolls a six.
   Once that person rolls a six, they will grab the pen and
    starting writing and counting out loud 1 to 100. The actual
    numbers (not slash marks) must be written one at a time
    and must be legible.
   The rolling of the dice continues until another group
    member rolls a six. They would then grab the pen from
    the other person and start writing their numbers beginning
    with the number 1.
   You will skip the person who is writing their numbers in
    the dice rotation. If you were able to write down numbers
    on your paper and roll a six again, you will just continue
    where you left off of.
   This is only a race between your own table; this is an
    individual challenge.
