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

clear
set obs 10000
g un1 = runiform()
g firstdice=cond(un1<`=1/3', 2, cond(un1<`=2/3', 4, 9 ))
prop firstdice

likewise for second and third.
