Two six sided dice are marked with 12 different integers, so that any number from 1 to 36 can be derived when both dice are thrown and the showing face-up values are added.
What is the lowest possible value of the highest number on one of the dice faces?
The basic solution, without optimization would be the base-6:
or the same with 1 added to each face of the top die while 1 is subtracted from the bottom.
But of course any number could be added to one side and subtracted from the other, so why not make the highest on each die 18?
