    I hate math.  Absolutely hate it.  Thank you for doing it for us and making the analysis!

    I LOLed at your conclusion for the last line.

    🙂

    It was only because a friend asked me about this that I started to look up some info. I really thought I could come up with a closed math formula, but that was too difficult to put in a blogpost.

    But anyway, rolling 8D6 vs 7D6 for a binary decision … that’s overkill! 🙂
