If you have ever seen the game show, Betting Squares, you may have wondered how one plays the game. The basic concept of the show is that two teams of two players each are presented with three numbered squares. One player from each team takes turns guessing which of the squares will be tapped when the dice are rolled. There are also two “jokers” that a player can use to their advantage. The first joker gives the player the ability to remove a square from the stack and replace it with another square. The second joker allows the player to replace all three squares on the stack with one of their own choice. In this article, we will cover everything you need to know about playing Betting Squares including how to play and a strategy for winning.
How to Play
You will need a deck of cards, a die, a stack of three wooden squares (each square will be labeled with a number), and a start button to play. Before starting, make sure that your device is in “play” mode. This will ensure that the buttons on the device operate as expected.
To begin, shuffle the deck of cards and deal out seven cards to each player. These cards will be your numbers. The joker cards will be used as needed throughout the game so make sure you have one in your hand at all times.
Each player will take turns guessing which number will be selected. The first player to correctly guess three numbers wins the game and earns $200. The game continues with two more players until one player wins three times in a row. This player then wins the game and earns $400. Each game features two joker cards which a player can use to their advantage by keeping one close by at all times.
Each game of Betting Squares is randomly determined, so there is no “right” strategy to winning. However, there are certain guidelines that you should follow to make the game more enjoyable and hopefully, win some prize money at the end.
The first thing you should do is make sure your die is fair. This means that the sides should be evenly weighted so that they will roll an even number of times when rolled. One way to achieve this is to roll the die several times and record the results. You should do the same with the joker cards until you have a good idea of which numbers they will most likely turn up. This helps you determine the odds of getting a certain number and gives you a better understanding of how the dice work together as a pair.
If the die is not fair, you should not use it. You should either use a different die or simply choose to play with the one that was dealt to you. While it is not recommended that you use a joker, it is perfectly acceptable to do so if the die is not fair.
The Winning Conditions
When the start button is pressed, a timer will begin counting down from 10. Once the timer hits zero, the numbers will disappear and be replaced with the category cards from the deck. These cards represent the squares that are available for players to guess. If a player gets three correct answers in a row, they will win the game and the prize will be incremented by $400.
The game ends when either of the following occurs:
- all of the players have gone broke
- the timer hits zero
- a joker is used
- a player wins three straight games
- a player rolls a six-sided die
Once the game has ended, the player with the most money at the end wins. If the money is tied, the player who rolled the highest number wins. In the event of a tie, the game ends in a draw and neither player wins.
