Michael and Brandon's Game

Our game is called "The Rich and the Poor". To play, you'll need the board, some markers (coins, bears, etc.), and 4 dice. Two of them should be one colour and the other pair should be another.
The game is meant for 2-4 players. Decide who moves first. Put all markers on "start". Then the player picks either the "poorman's dice" or the "richman's dice" each turn to roll with. The numbers needed and spaces moved differ witht the dice:
Poorman's Dice : need 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, to move ONE space.
Richman's Dice : need 2, 6, 12, to move THREE spaces.
The players then alternate turns, following the steps on any spaces they land on until one player reaches "finish" and they win.
The game is fair because both players have an equal chance of moving, and they can decrease or increase the odds themselves by picking the right dice. There is a ~1/2 or ~1/4 chance of moving.
The game is fun because some strategy comes into play on when to pick the Richman's dice and when to pick the Poorman's dice. For example, if one space is in front of your marker is "Go back 2 spaces" then you want to use the Richman's dice to avoid it.
