Description

Pig Dice is a very simple jeopardy game in which two players race to reach 100 points. Each turn, a player repeatedly rolls a die until either a 1 is rolled or the player holds and scores the sum of the rolls (that is, the turn total).

Features

- A probability indicator tells you what are your chances of winning.

- The risk gauge next to the die turns different colors depending on how risky your turn becomes.

- The AI engine provides a challenging opponent to make the game even more fun!

Tips

Be forewarned! The computer player makes perfect roll/hold decisions, and is a _difficult_ opponent. However, it is possible for the human player to win almost half of the time. For the latest on human play strategies, search for the article "Practical Play of the Dice Game Pig".

However, it's more fun to learn good play for yourself. Here are steps for improving your Pig play:

- Ignore your number of rolls. Whether you╒ve rolled three 2╒s or one 6, you still have the same turn total at stake. The die doesn╒t remember how many times it╒s been rolled. Learn to pay attention only to the scores and turn total.

- Imitate the computer. Watch the computer's general behavior and make the same decisions in the same situations, even when they are unintuitive.

- Find a good general hold value. Hold with too low a turn total and you'll make frequent progress too slowly. Hold with too high a turn total, and you'll make rapid progress too infrequently. Find the balance.

- Adjust for the opponent's score. When you're ahead, you can hold at lower values. When you're behind, take greater risks.

- Learn when to go for the goal. There comes a point when the opponent is close enough to the goal that you need to try for the goal in a single turn. To win more often, you need to be willing to lose more spectacularly.

- Have fun. You'll be frustrated if winning is the only way you have fun. If learning to be a better player is fun for you, the AI will provide plenty of opportunity to hone your Pig skills. Enjoy!
