Little math problems October 2019
Imagine you have just saw the "royal game of Ur" teaser on youtube.

Nice game, easy to reproduce. I think it is more enjoyable than backgammon where there is more computation to do if one is competitive, and it is not exactly equal to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mensch_%C3...Dich_nicht or its better sequel (Sequel to Mesch ärgere dich nicht) dog or Tock (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tock).

Back to the game of Ur. In the teaser there where practically 4 dice, each behaves like a coin.

Nowadays we normally use dice with 6 sides, flipping coins is unpractical and only **cough** nerds **cough** have other type of dice or even calculators (and who on earth would download apps to simulate dice!).

Thus you scavenged some of your popular games (risiko, monopoly, settlers of catan, cluedo and what not) and you found an handful (you decide how many) of 6 sided dice, how you are going to simulate the "flipping of 4 coins"? Please explain it to your fellow players. Of course the solution should be practical.

Wikis are great, Contribute :)
