Lucky 1s

    Check round 3, moves 26 to 37 in this game:

    From one corner to the other, with six 1s in a row, the lucky Blue got the last round.

    Skipping the corner - to connect this with another topic - as that would need eight 1s.

    There is a shorter path through the diagonal which is also 36 times more probable than your detour ;)More seriously, why prefer taking the 5 on 1st move instead of the 3 (I tend to favour taking 3 and 4).

    Thanks for sharing, yper.

    That is the wood from which master dice are made!

    I prefer taking the 2 and 5 on the first. There is a slight difference in the possibilities afterwards, But I don't remember it, and have no time at this moment to redo the math :-)

    And to pick at another nit.  When you use the corner square, it is only 7 moves, not 8.
