First off, it's a social since there is a '5' and a '3' rolled. As it stands, the player must take 2 additional drinks because of the leftover dice. But the more intellegent player would notice the pairness of the 5's (which then gives us a '2') and divide it by the remaining '2' to give us a '1' that we can multiply against 53. So the player only has to take one additional drink because of the penalty for pairness. But the even more experienced player would add the 5's together to reach 10, and divide by 2 to get 5. Then with the '3' we have 53 without any penalty drink since all of the dice were used without pairness. | |
Solution: 2 + 3 is 5, and use the other '3' for 53. Take a penalty drink because of the unused '6'. Better solution: '6' minus a '3' gives us 3. '2' plus the other '3' is the 5. | |
No easy solution. Try your luck by taking a drink and rolling again. The authors note that the solution is: 2 / (pairness of 2) = 1. 1 + 4 =5. 2 / (pairness of 4) = 1. 4 - 1 = 3. You would have to do 2 drinks because of pairness penaltys. | |
Social. ((4 + 6) * 5) + 3 = 53 53 the hard way | |
1 + 4 = 5. 6 / 2 = 3. | |
6 / (Pairness of the fours) = 3. And we're given a 5. That would leave you with a one drink penalty. But why not do this: ((4 + 4) * 6) + 5 = 53. 53 the hard way |
