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?

To Cory: Enh, you wouldn't HAVE to have another die.  You could have a condition like "if you roll a 2" or "if you roll two 6s in a row" or something like that.

I'm not saying we should add this to the problem, especially because it would mess up the odds entirely, but I'm just saying you could simulate pass the pigs with one die if you were really desperate =D

 

To Dustin: Glad to be of service =)  I found mine at FAO Schwartz, and I've also seen them at Go Games, in case you wanted to get your own and not rely on your cousin.  The same folks who made PTP also made a game called Can't Stop the Turtles which is an interesting game.  Similar "keep rolling and pushing your luck until you decide to stop" style.  My friend once rolled a double leaning jowler... it was CRAZY!  =D
