RE: interesting game
Thanks Bill and Dave.

I must be doing something wrong, my figures don't seem to jive with either of yours, although the general approach seems right (go for the biggest numbers [9, 10] first since they are the rarest, I think).

I don't consider 36 possible rolls, because 1-3 and 3-1 are the same. I considered these possible rolls:

1-1
1-2
1-3
1-4
1-5
1-6
2-2
2-3
2-4
2-5
2-6
3-3
3-4
3-5
3-6
4-4
4-5
4-6
5-5
5-6
6-6

Considering the add, subtract, multiply, and divide for these combinations, I get the following possibilities:

1 - 12
2 - 9
3 - 7
4 - 7
5 - 5
6 - 6
7 - 3
8 - 4
9 - 3
10 - 3

And I assume division must leave no remainder, so for example a 3-2 roll could only yield 5, 1, or 6.
