Description

You Choose, You Lose – (Double Whammy)
(1) Offer someone first choice of the dice – it doesn't matter which they choose, you can ALWAYS select one of the remaining ones which will give you the advantage.
(2) Reveal the secret – the explanation is based on an astounding mathematical paradox …. whoever chooses first loses!
3) Play again – this time, YOU choose first, but you still win!!!
These dice have the peculiar property that no matter which of the three is chosen, one of the remaining two has a statistical advantage over it. For a full description, see our product Nontransitive Dice (set of 3).
There is another remarkable property (less well-known) of this set of nontransitive dice – if you use one set, the order of dominance is: blue beats black beats green beats blue. However, if you use 2 sets, ie two of one colour against two of another colour, the relationship is still nontransitive, but the order of dominance reverses. Now, blue beats green beats black beats blue! This makes for a delightful sting in the tail when you use these dice to perform a trick.
An instruction booklet is included with this pack.
