Well, it took two weeks, but Dice Games Properly Explained hit my mailbox today. I’ve almost read it already and expect to finish soon. It’s a wonderful book! Full of games and as the title says, the games are properly explained. There’s a lot of thought about the tactics, especially when it comes to the betting games. There’s a chapter of probabilities of dice and the betting game tactics analyse the odds and bank cuts and all that very thoroughly. If you don’t know a thing about probabilistics, you will after reading this book.
It’s also well written and a delightful, easy read. Highly recommended for anyone interested in dice games. The only other dice game book I’ve read pales in comparison to this masterpiece. (Dice Games Properly Explained in Amazon.co.uk.)
