Non-transitive dice would be something like: * die A has sides {2,2,4,4,9,9}, * die B has sides {1,1,6,6,8,8}, and * die C has sides {3,3,5,5,7,7}. A is likely to be higher than B B is likely to be higher than C C is likely to be higher than A On Fri, Feb 20, 2009 at 3:48 PM, Martin Weiss <martin.weiss1@gmx.de> wrote: > <> > > I hope you forgive me for not knowing what "non-transitive" means?
