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
- 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?
(In reply to re(3): a wiser approach
Thank you, Charlie. It was not so clear to me, but numbers prove.
So, Steve, a 20 points score by turn seems really a winning strategy (not considering end games strategies). I think, I'm going to defy some friends now, hidding information, of course...
