Ice Cream Scoreboard

The Ice Cream Game is basically a rolling game. A full set of rules can be found in the newest Colorado guidebook; Whitewater of the Southwest Rockies. What the rules boil down to is that the person who rolls the most times during a run buys everyone else ice cream. To help with the shame and heckling associated with losing the Ice Cream Game, we will be keeping a running score of the people we paddle with, and provide a public area for degrading comments.

A note on the scores. The "ties" are ties for last place. Sometimes the rules have to be flexed a little, in confusing situations. The "Winning %" is calculated by taking the number of wins plus half the number of ties, and dividing by the total number of runs that person has been on. Basically, a tie is half a win and half a loss.

Let the smack-talking begin!


  1. Conor! You lost the ice cream game. You suck!

    Just kidding. I hope you had fun on the Slave (how could you not?).


  2. Wait...I heard the stories of Bigwood fall. Nice job launching a perfect boof and somehow landing on your head! Haha, maybe Leif is bad luck...I did it too.

    Yeah the Slave was pretty sweet! I won the ice cream game every time we played it there (oddly not posted).


  3. Look, we agreed that the Slave was Big Water, so the ICG rules shouldn't apply. Besides... what about that day at the Dread Ledge?
