Master. Each other Methuselah secretly chooses a number between 1 and 5; you choose a number between 1 and 6. Each Methuselah holds a hand out with the chosen number of counters in it. Reveal the choices simultaneously. Each Methuselah gains the amount of pool he or she chose unless another Methuselah chose exactly one less than he or she did, in which case, he or she burns that amount of pool.
