No Commands for this optional stage - only gobbo's!
After killing the motel owner, taking over the place, and cleaning yourselves off, you decide to head towards the docks. At the docks, you see a ship that's completely out of place -- an oversized, too futuristic cruise ship. As you get closer, you see that the ship bears the name S.S. Meteora. The veterans amongst you quickly realize that this ship is your ticket to the final boss and their castle across the water. It's also definitely not the first time that the eccentric woman and one-time IBT participant has conjured up something that looked too high-tech.
As you and the other heroes board onto the cruise ship, you hear what sounds like pigs wailing in pain and martial artists in combat. You look back to see pig heads flying in the air and Chuck Norris razing the town -- apparently word of how you were mistreated spread really quick. Once you're all on board, the ship heads off towards the boss's castle. You decide to take a look around the ship, when you notice a door that's ajar on the main deck. Curious, you open the door and see inside that there's a large, posh room with some weird stuff in it. You decide to head on in to look more closely.
Against one wall you can see cages -- some are empty, while others hold balled-up, maimed Gobbos that are still alive. In the center of the room you see a larger cage that seems to double as a contraption of some sort. On opposite ends of this cage are what appear to be BFG 9000 replicas with balled-up Gobbos already loaded into their muzzles. The BFG replicas seem to be connected to red buttons outside the cage. Next to one of the red buttons is what seems like a miniature vending machine, so you decide to check that out. On the mini-machine, you see a sticker with the following text:
Gambling Gobball Rules
Would you like to play a game? If so:
- 1. Insert 1 coin as your wager.
- 2. Push the red button to launch Gobbo.
- 3. Two dead Gobbos pay 4-1. Any other outcome loses.
A picture of the coin to be used is shown on the instructions, and it looks identical to the banked life points that you have been collecting since the start of your adventure...
You look up and see that on the other side of the large cage, Chick Norris is standing on top of the button connected to the BFG replica over there after having just pressed it. You then hear a pre-recorded female voice (probably Meteora's) say, "Game beginning in 10... 9... 8..." Looks like you need to decide quickly whether or not you want to play -- the odds may not be in your favor, but the potential rewards of a victory could mean the difference between ultimate glory and utter shame. Care to gamble with Gobbos?
Special Rules For This Stage
First things first -- this stage is optional. However, just like all the other stages, there is a STEEM prize to be split amongst all players who succeed on their first attempt. (Unlike the other stages, if you play you get only one attempt.)
Chick Norris is the "dealer". You should see a @gobbo summon and roll as the first comment to this post, which will be replied to by either @lordnigel or @doughtaker with a picture of Chick Norris and confirmation of the official roll. Whatever number Chick Norris rolls for the Gobbo, that's the number you must match on your Gobbo roll in order to kill off both Gobbos and win the stage.
Items have no effect on this stage. You must roll a perfect match to win, and you must do so with a Gobbo summon of your own.
These are the only possible outcomes on this stage:
- You skip the stage (nothing happens).
- If you lose the stage, you score -1 banked life point.
- If you win the stage, you score +4 banked life points and share in the STEEM prize for this stage. (Success here does not count towards the flawless victories required to gain access to the special spell.)
If you comment that you're skipping this stage, you can't change your mind later. If you start playing the boss stage first, you are also considered to have skipped this stage. In either case, if you try to roll here after skipping, your roll will be rejected.
