FINDING DICE SETS |
||||||||
The laborious preponderance of finding appropriate dice sets can be overwhelming if not |
||||||||
boring. Be of good spirit for help is on the way. Wading through the maze of number |
||||||||
permutations has ferreted out a simplicity of method to attain your goal. |
||||||||
Let's assume your looking for a dice set to use for |
L/Die Set |
R/Die Set |
||||||
trash {craps, yo, 7's] [TIER 1]. Pick an appropriate |
4 |
3 |
||||||
pair of numbers indicative of trash and build a table |
1 |
1 |
||||||
as shown on the right. You know from the formula |
Combinations |
|||||||
regarding permutations, there are 16 number |
1 |
1 |
||||||
arrangements for each dice set. Look at the two |
3 |
4 |
||||||
columns of numbers below "Combinations". 4 x 4 or |
6 |
6 |
||||||
4 squared = 16. Imagine that. This tells you that you |
4 |
3 |
||||||
can select 15 more sets of numbers from those 2 |
Sum:across #'s=10 |
Sum:craps,yo,7's=6 |
||||||
columns. Example: 1/3, 1/4, 6/4, 6/3 and so on. |
Count L/R |

Now that 16 sets have been found [1 permutation], |

plethora of trash. Notice the shift in Sum's from 10/6 to |
Combinations |

6/10. Heed the weight increase of 1 ea. for the 6/8. |

That stinks, but it goes with the territory. This can |

This is a set I see used by an avid craps player that is |
L/Die Set |
R/Die Set |
||||||
seen quite often in the craps forums. On one of his |
4 |
5 |
||||||
outings, he claimed that the set was not producing |
1 |
1 |
||||||
his normal numbers. As a fix, he rotated the right die |
Combinations |
|||||||
1/4 turn to the right [horizontal plane], voila, the |
1 |
1 |
||||||
numbers came back. There's nothing wrong with this |
3 |
2 |
||||||
set. As you can see, there is a weight distribution |
6 |
6 |
||||||
of 2 inside and 1 outside and a minimum of 2 sevens. |
4 |
5 |
||||||
Notice the Sum of numbers is 10 and trash is 6. |
Sum:across #'s=10 |
Sum:craps,yo,7's=6 |
||||||
He claims he gets a lot of numbers/trash with this set. |

Let's analyze the anomaly of this corrected maneuver |
L/Die Set |
R/Die Set |
||||||
as stated above and look for the reasons why. Notice |
4 |
5 |
||||||
the Sum of numbers shifted to 12 and the trash to 4. |
1 |
3 |
||||||
The 2/12 weight of 1 shifted to the 6/8 taking them to |
Combinations |
|||||||
a weight of 3. Looks like the player made a smart |
1 |
3 |
||||||
move. |
