Or you could be really brave and fight the Manticores. Mum has 30 LIFE POINTS, Dad has 25 and Little Baby has 15, but all hit successfully on a 6 and score +3 damage.
Score 7, 8, 9, 10,11 or 12 and go to 54.

As you stand here nervously, you can hear strange noises in the undergrowth — strange slithery noises. And there are birds in there too, except they aren't singing: they're cackling.
