On average, which offers better probability of higher result on 2d6. Rerolling both dice, or just the lower of the two?
Richmond, VA. Let's play!
The average score on 1d6 is 3.5, on 2d6 it is 7.
The average score for the higher number of 2d6 is about 4.47.
The average score for the higher of 2d6 plus the lower re-rolled is therefore about 7.97.
Boring people might prefer to roll 1d6+1 for an average result not far away (although the distribution of results will be dfferent).
All the best,
Perfect, thank you!
On average, I would prefer any solution where players will think more about what their miniatures/characters are doing, than about dice strategy.
(Only my personal opinion)
I doubt you’ll find anyone on this forum who disagrees with that statement! 😀
Sure, but if you are writing the game you need to understand the math of what you are doing 🙂
