 Dice rolling Solver for HP 19BII - Please HelpMessage #1 Posted by Hans van der Drift on 1 Apr 2007, 7:03 a.m. Hi, I have a Car racing board game that requires a lot of dice rolling (too much) I do not have the knowledge on how to write a formula for this but I hope I some one here could help (i am sure it is quite simple)I have a HP 19bII So the input is "Gear" the output is "Spaces". You get 6 dice, six of which represent gears on your car: d4 rolls 1 or 2 (first gear) d6 rolls 2-4 (second gear) d8 rolls 4-8 (third gear) d12 rolls 7-12 (fourth gear) d20 rolls 11-20 (fifth gear) d30 rolls 21-30 (sixth gear) I will list out all 6 dice (or gears) and describe how many sides they have plus the results and chances. Dice/Gear 1 Sides = d4 Range = 1 - 2 Possibility: All 1 in 2 Dice/Gear 2 Sides = d6 Range: 2 - 4 Possibility: 2: 1 in 6--- 3: 2 in 6--- 4: 3 in 6--- Dice/Gear 3 Sides = d8 Range: 4 - 8 Possibility: 4: 1 in 8--- 5: 1 in 8--- 6,7,8: 2 in 8--- Dice/Gear 4 Sides = d12 Range: 7 - 12 Possibility: All - 1 in 6 Dice/Gear 5 Sides = d20 Range: 11 - 20 Possibility: All: 1 in 10 Dice/Gear 6 Sides = d30 Range: 21 - 30 Possibility: All: 1 in 10 Edited: 3 Apr 2007, 2:41 a.m.
