If no-one wins outright because of a 3-3 split, a category will be picked by dice roll tags - and the person playing first in that round will also be dice picked.[/dice]

[dice]1d6[/dice]
1= number of dice you wish to roll
d= well... dice maybe?
6= number of faces

So this will give a number from 1 to 6.

So in this case, you probably would like
[dice]1d2[/dice]
 Dice Roll: Original Roll String: 1d2 1 2-Sided Dice Results: 1

And pressing the BBCode help button, which is just below and to the left of the edit box when you are writing or editing a note -- that's crazy.

 Our own BBCode help page wrote: Game playing Features Rolling dice in a post

(Hmmm. I should update that page to include our new features.)

By the way, grats to dethwing and Scurra for reaching the finals!

 Posted: Sun Aug 09, 2009 8:45 pm    Post subject: 29 I didn't have Baseball or Softball (or Tug-of-War, although I knew you were right as soon as I saw it.) The last two on my list were Lacrosse and Pelota which both seemed feasible but they would definitely have been guesses... If I'm nominating, then I'd like to take Science and Nature._________________ still Quiz Olympiad champion. Must get a life. New definitions: COFFEE - someone who is coughed upon
