Thanks for the correction. I forgot that information from Kilby's book. So it would seem the 48 does refer to come out rolls per hour. I apologize for the error.


So 48 come out rolls would seem to be 162 rolls per hour or one roll every 22 seconds. Probably easy to do with 4 players who aren't doing anything unusual. It seems to me one of the biggest slowdowns is people who habitually throw the dice so they bounce off the table onto the floor.

I saw one guy who had over a dozen bets on the table and would change them nearly every single throw of the dice. I think he was trying to read the neutron particles.

Hi Paco:

can you give me a brief explanation of the 3 + 62/165 calculation. I have been trying to figure out the 3.38 rolls for a while now!

Thanks very much!!

There is a 12/36 chance it will take 1 roll
There is a 10/36 chance the come out roll is a 6 or 8, and it will then take 1+(36/11)
There is a 8/36 chance the come out roll is a 5 or 9, and it will then take 1+(36/10)
There is a 6/36 chance the come out roll is a 4 or 10, and it will then take 1+(36/9)

Totalling it all up=3.376
