Chocolate Games

Each person throws the dice in turn. If you throw a six, put on the hat, scarf and gloves. With the knife and fork you are free to eat as much chocolate as possible before somebody else throws a six. This carries on until all the chocolate has been eaten. The aim is to obtain as much chocolate as possible. This game is particularly popular with the group – to be fair, anyone who likes chocolate is usually more than happy to play!
