Roll of the die (Posted on 2005-04-21) Difficulty: 4 of 5
The object of the dice game is to be the first player to reach a score of at least 100 points.
Each player’s turn consists of repeatedly rolling a die.
After each roll, the player has two choices: roll again, or stop.
- If the player rolls 1, nothing is scored in that turn and it becomes the opponent’s turn.
- If the player rolls a number other than 1, the number is added to the player’s turn total and the player’s turn continues.
- If the player stops, the turn total (the sum of the rolls during the turn), is added to the player’s score, and it becomes the opponent’s turn.

What's your strategy?

Pass The Pigs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! | Comment 2 of 23 |

I haven't done any work on this problem yet.  I just had to point out that this is almost exactly like the super cool game called Pass The Pigs :)  A friend of mine at camp introduced me to it, and a couple years ago I got my own set.  It's AWESOME

This Roll of the Die game should have another condition.  Rolling a 1 wipes out your TURN total.  There should be another condition where it wipes out your ENTIRE total from previous turns.  Then it would be exactly like PTP (except for the actual odds).
