Greedy and Networking
Monday, November 18, 2019, 8-9 PM Eastern time (5-6 PM SLT)By far the most popular game in Second Life, and many other virtual worlds, is Greedy. It's called Farkle in the Facebook games list. It's a game of chance but involves a little skill, easy if you know probability.
Come play with us! To encourage you we are giving Linden
prizes: L$500 for top score, L$300 for second place, and L$100 for third place. See directions for accessing Second Life below.
