Take the dice and go home.


Upon reconsideration... offer the "friend" the same wager. Poke tongue | ;-P

I may be way off here, but if my probability-fu hasn't entirely failed me...

One die for a 4 or 5 or 6        == 3:6   , 50% , to win even money == "fair game"
Two dice for at least one 5 or 6 == 8:36  , 22% , to win even money == about a 55% house edge?
Three dice for at least one 6    == 7:216 ,  3% , to win even money == about a 94% house edge?

Two dice for at least one 5 or 6 == 20:36  , 55% , to win even money == -11% house edge?
Three dice for at least one 6    == 91:216 , 42% , to win even money == about a 16% house edge?




Not playing is still the best option.
