Ken, the host of This Week in Wargaming (TWiW), was kind enough to invite Russ and TWiW founder Troy on the show to discuss the new tech hotness: The iPad.  Specifically, how will the iPad effect the gaming hobby?  Will it change how we play games, track rules, and manage our books?

Tune in to TWiW Episode AT-11 to listen to our thoughts.

Special thanks to listener Bill Roberston who sent in the following details about our rating system and how the re-rolls really stack up.


 

No, I'm not a math nerd.  I was forced to take statistics in school,
and that included a healthy dose of probability.  The first part of
most probability courses covers the binomial distribution, which tells
you if you try something a bunch of times, what are the odds that 1
try will succeed, or 2 will succeed etc...

My little gamer mind immediately latched on to this, and only this,
part of the course!

For example, if I want to know the chance of a 3+ with a reroll.  I
first start with a google search for binomial calculator.  Next, plug
in 2 tries with a .67 success chance.  Calculate the result and ask it
to tell me the chance of getting 1 or more successes.

So out of curiosity, I used the web calculator to figure out all of
the d6 with a reroll values and ranked them together with the
single-roll odds.  This is the one I used.
http://www.stat.tamu.edu/~west/applets/binomialdemo.html

2++ = 97%
3++ = 89%
2+  = 83%
4++ = 75%
3+  = 67%
5++ = 56%
4+  = 50%
5+  = 34%
6++ = 31%
6+  = 17%

+ = w/o a reroll
++ = with a reroll

I don't use it very much, but its very handy when coming up with house
rules to see what the effect of multiple rolls would be.  Or, if I
feel like a baby, I use it to see how fast animosity will screw my Orc
army as it gets larger.

Cheers!
