Game: 787055
has a weird dices distribution.
It is 1 vs 1 and one throws an average of 3,25 whereas the other gets 4,05.
The average of course should be a 3,5..
The first lucky to get two 6 out of some 40 throws..the second hits 8 times 6.


And I had this experience more often.

Me, one that had 20 games played in total, and the one BENEFITTING from better dices having played over 1000 games.

Is there SOME SORT OF INCORPORATED BIAS TOWARDS "EXPERIENCED "PLAYERS ????

It is not. Years ago I kept track of the die rolls during an 8 players tournament spanning trough several league, and it resulted in nothing. You just experienced a bad game.


Long ago I knew the statistics needed to anylize this. One can look at something asking the question, “what are the odds”. If it is 1/100, or even 1/1000 it does not mean much because so many games are played, but if it shows 1/1000000 something might be wrong. Anyone remember how to do that?
