The REAL truth about random dice Posted: Jan 4, 2018 2:15 AM

Greetings Fellow Gammon Players:

I have read many, many posts regarding the alleged "fixed" dice in a scheme to undermine individual players. The closer truth is nothing more than sour grapes. Anyone having first hand knowledge of super computers, exponential computations and basic math can easily understand random number generators; it's not that complicated.

A "rigged" game would require human intervention into each and every game; trust me, you aren't that special. One player claims that members get 58% more doubles than non-members and claims to have a program to measure such. Yet, he can't explain what is meant by 58%.

Here's the bottom line in reality: Dice Have No Memory - you never know what comes next. However, it is fair to say that all combinations will appear at least 3 times during any given game.

GG & GL,

Dr. Gammon

Hi Dr,

do you play sometimes Backgammon or just read the posts?

I suggest, play a few times, then you will see that the dices are manipulated.

Hi Dr. Gammon,
There could be different randomization types. I suspect that randomization program uses game information (stats of players, players time spent during the game, if there is double or not, etc.) It cannot be manupulated by operators but there could be a feedback from game to the randomization program. I strongly suspect that some players have found out how it works and they use it for their benefit.

Of course I play and play often. Do you think the "dices" are cheating when you win the game?

Randomization programs? I don't think you quiet understand the specifics of a random generator. Each die is random. It's silly to think otherwise and only the losers complain. Winners attribute their victory to personal skill.
