I've been monitoring my games and have noticed that approx. 99/100 when I first leave a blot it is immediately hit by my opponent on his/her next move. The percentage when my opponent leaves a blot and I hit it is far less than this. I have also noticed that the number of times doubles is thrown in a game is far greater than probabilities allow for. This leads me to believe that the "random" generator for dice throws programmed for this game is a): not very good (not at all as random as one would expect), or b): intentionally skewed to favour certain players or certain situations. I have also noticed that my wins/losses come in groups; several of each in a row, and not haphazardly as one would expect from true random selection and play.

No way does a random throw of the dice beget the same throw 5 TIMES IN A ROW!
