“It is against the law to close down streets to celebrate parties in Nigeria. However, young teenagers and party lovers do not comply with this instruction and continue to violate the order. Closing down streets for parties constantly result in traffic congestions in and around the Lagos metropolis. The Nigeria police have hence intensified efforts to put a stop to this menace and placed police men in strategic locations around the city to chase down and arrest offenders.”

It is played by one person and computer. It is equipped with two dice but can also be played with one die.
It is made up of 100 tracks starting from 1 to 100. The first player to reach the last track is declared winner.
The aim of the game is to move to the last track (100) before your opponent using the outcome of the dice or die.”
