Chester County man looking for success with board game

    Steve Maling thinks the odds are in his favor when it comes to the success of his new board game. After more than $40,000 and a two-year patent process, the Chester County resident hopes Deception Dice will catch on.

    Maling told the Kennett Paper his multi-player dice game could cross markets into the gambling and mobile app worlds, but he’s sticking with the traditional stuff for now.

    Here’s how to play:

    Roll your dice in your cup and leave them hidden.
    Bets are based on the number of times a specific number is rolled, so take a look at your dice and place a bet
    Be prepared for a challenge at every turn, which could snatch one of your die away. These and other game-changers will be important.
    Lose all your dice and you’re out.
