Hi there,
we played ludo today (guess who lost :roll and with 3 people playing I re-used the tokens(?? what are these really called, I don't trust my dictionary onthat, actually) and the dice for some 3+1 combos. Indoor, no flash, ISO800, 1/60s ... so DOF is a bit thin, but you'll get the idea

#1 - 3 teams, 1 dice

#2 - now a single "team": 3 players (tokens), 1 dice (actually we used four, but that would not have met the challenge, so use your phantasy and think of some place where the 4th player is...)

Never heard of that game but like what you did with the playing pieces. Looks like one of those shots using a mirror without the mirror.

Maybe the name "parcheesi" rings a bell? I really know only these two english words for that game and so far everyone I was talking about knew it... anyone here knows another name for it?

As for the mirror thingie... this is all real, no tricks - but I know what you mean

@Walter
Thanks, it was actually fun to arrange and take the shots, minimal PP used, too: quick RAW development, resize (not even a 2:3 crop), and a little desaturation because colors were really strong.

regards,
Th.

We searched the game box and found "Your never mind" and "Never mind!" as other possible names... maybe you know these? In online shops I found "don't worry", too...

@All
Thanks for the nice and encouraging comments so far, it was fun to do and I will probably re-use these threads to post some "aside"-shots (not counting towards the challenge) since you seem to like them
