We have a small straight already set, but one more six will get our upper bonus on.

Small straight it is. Take the first instance of each number?

MR. F said...

Wow. Nice one, FB. I wish I saw him during that tour. This one is very much a different side of Sufjan. But it was amazing. The greatest concert I've ever seen. Granted I haven't seen many. But wow.

Taking the 6 in the sixes.

I'm going for broke in the last round. Even a Yahtzee won't make a difference but I want final the score to look respectable.

Eric Karros said...

Well let me think about this:

-->if I bet on a Yahtzee next round and get it, it'd be 50 next round plus the 6 I'd bank this round, so +56
-->if I bet on 4 sixes next round and get it, it'd be 0 this round but at least 26+35 next round, so +61.

I'm guessing the probability of a Yahtzee is > probability of 4 sixes. But Yahtzee is all or nothing. With 4 sixes, a fail could still yield lesser points.

So conclusion: I'm not sure what to do. Any suggestions?

Jason said...

@EK - You have to take the 0 on the Yahtzee now and hope to get 5 sixes next round while the readers roll none. In that scenario you win by 4, 245 - 241. There is no other scenario that I can see where the Sons can win this thing (except for the readers royally screwing up the vote on the small straight this round).
