Of the Master of Dice - A contest of the 14th anniversary

Recommended Posts

Greetings to all.

A brief contest, which shall require of thought, and strategy.

Mallos, who doth possess of a special, seven sided die, did inspire myself to create of this contest. I must think that he must ponder upon the optimal distribution of pips upon his die.

Entries shall close upon the close of the anniversary, whereby the contest will commence.

The contest were as follows:

A six-faceted die usually doth possess of a number of pips upon each face; one to six inclusive.

However, my challenge to all who participate were to redistribute the number of pips (twenty-one in total) such that the die has the most optimal chance, in an infinite number of random dice rolls, to defeat the die roll of another who has also redistributed the number of pips upon her own die. Of course, a higher value shall defeat a lower value; however, there were no difference betwixt a victory of many pips, and a victory merely of a single one.

Post thy name in this thread if thou dost wish to participate, and additionally, when thou dost post within this thread, message myself, upon the Forum, of thy distribution of the pips (but do not reveal of these to aught.)

In example, one may create a die with facets showing 0,0,6,5,5,5, which were a valid distribution. One may not have fewer than zero pips upon any facet of the die.

In each round, each participant's die's overall chance to defeat the opposing die shall determine the victor (and not merely a single roll).

In example, a die with 0,0,6,5,5,5 shall defeat a die with 4,4,4,4,4,1.

An anniversary creature shall be awarded to the overall winner. Plan thy strategy accordingly.

Hereby do I close of all entries to this contest.

Herewith, the entries:

Demonic God: 0,0,3,5,6,7
NathanBlake: 1,1,3,5,5,6
Nepgear: 1,1,1,6,6,6
Aelis: 0,0,5,5,5,6
dst: 0,0,4,5,6,6
Ungod: 0,0,4,5,6,6
(As Ungod and dst did submit the same die, if their die were that which were victorious, I shall grant each an anniversary creature. Additionally, a victory against this die is worth double, as there are two separate opponents.)


A simple round-robin shall declare the winner, then:
