Help make a list of sentences/phrases said while gaming

We play board games in French every Friday. I was thinking it would be helpful to make a list of useful phrases said while gaming. Can you please help me come up with lists in English, then I'll work on translating them into French.

List #1: Things to say about winning and losing

I won.

You lost.

He won twice.

You go first.

I'll go first, since I lost last game.

It's your turn.

It's not your turn. ...

List #2: Things to say while playing with cards

Pick up 2 cards.

Discard your cards.

Pass 1 card to the left. ...

List #3: Things to say while playing with dice

He rolled a 6.

Roll 3 dice. ...

List #4: Being mean :p

Attack him, he is winning.

Let's all team up against Mom. ...

I'm planning to make a few lists and get them translated into french. I'm hoping for suggestions for lists, and items for the lists. I'm thinking of about 20 items per list. If I come up with some good lists I know a few fluent french speakers from Quebec that can help translate and include some slang.

I won. "J'ai gagné" You lost "Vous avez perdu" He won twice" Il a gagné deux fois" You go first "Vous allez d'abord" I'll go first, since I lost the last game "J'y vais en premier, depuis que j'ai perdu le dernier match." It's your turn. " C'est ton tour." It's not your turn " Ce n'est pas votre tour." I'll translate the rest later it's late here and I need sleep sorry hope this is of use to you :)
