Scribe Post for October 8, 2008

Ok this is what happened in class today:

We played this game with a die in a die. I know some of you might not understand but I actually found a picture on google :

Okay, here is how you play the game:

Wait! Before you play answer this question - Is this game fair? why?
Okay heres how you play:

1. you have a player and an opponent
2. both players start with 10 points
3. only the player gets to roll the die
4. if the player rolls a 7 he gains 3 points and the opponent loses 3 points
5. if the player rolls anything different from a 7, the player loses 1 point and the opponent gains 1 point
6. you are only allowed 10 rolls
7. if either the player or opponent loses all of his or her points, they automatically lose
8. play 10 games to see who wins the most

Okay, now that you know how to play, you have to answer these questions:
1. Who wins the most? Why?
2. Think Probability
3. Is this game fair?

Here is an example of a game:

Okay I think thats what we mostly did in class because we had bus ridership in the middle of class so we missed a little bit :)

So for the next scribe post I would like :


to do the next scribe post. Thanks! Comment .

Good job Leo. Are there links that would help us? Are there other images... All scribes can be improved.

This scribe had lots of detail in the text. Thanks for starting off the year with such a good post.
