Well, I had a Deathwalker roll today. Sort of.

I had an Elite Onyx Viper, with height, and my dad had Tandros Kreel, attacking from range. I get a total of eleven dice, because Evasive 8 and height gives me a total of nine more. He rolls, gets one skull. I roll, get two blanks, and nine skulls.

The above percentage is about the chances of it happening. The actual fraction (without the 3/4 chance that Tandros would roll a skull) is 2048/177147.

I hate you, Probability.

I also ended up losing the game.

Wow. That's like losing an Obsidian Guard to a lava roll. :P

Well, really, you should consider the chance of the EOV getting exactly one shield while Tandros rolls all-skulls, too.

So the actual percentage chance is 2.45%, not .8% See, you weren't that unlucky!

My nine year old can roll 80% skulls or shields at the right time almost all the time. I do it occasionally but it's always at the wrong time...
I need to take that kid to Vegas.
