I have been enjoying TS on the iPad for a while now, thanks for all your hard work in bringing one of my favourite games to my tablet!
Having played plenty of games now, one of my feelings is that the probability distribution of the dice rolls is off. While I don't have concrete numbers, I feel there is an over indexing of 1s, especially when playing 4 ops cards for coups.
Further to this, I also feel there is an improbably high number of same roll runs, especially on coups. Having played 100 plus games, I have experienced at least 3 or 4 runs of 1 rolls up to 4 times in a row. Based on my simple maths, this should only occur with a probability of 1/1296. Assuming 20 coups per game (a high estimate) this translates to 2000 rolls based on 100 games. So having at least 3 or 4 same roll runs feels too much for my taste. Clearly this is a possibility, but the four 1s in a row feel much more prevalent that 4 roll runs of other numbers. There may well be some bias based on 1 rolls being more painful and therefore more memorable, but I'm pretty sure something is off...
Have you run any logging on the dice rolls?
If so, can you please do some distribution analysis to verify that your random number generator is not biased? I know they are not perfect but having played a lot of the actual board game as well, the rolls in the iOS version do not match the feel of the tabletop version.
Has anyone else noticed this? Forgive me if my maths is off...
