Spoke with the Wizard today and found he is still studying the dice. He tells me he has come up with an expansion of his idea of polar opposites, which are themselves an expansion of his axial arrays that show without doubt that on-axis shooting ain't happening. It is his contention that by identifying "shooting quirks" unique to an individual, there is a way to use dice properties, with an understanding of polar opposites, to make minor adjustments on the fly, with the idea of maximizing "safe" dice outcomes. Because safe dice outcomes harbor only two sevens compared with unsafe dice outcomes which have four, it stands to reason that IF you can end safe more often than what is expected randomly, you stand a better chance to win. Of course you can end "safely" on a seven. This is understood, but it is also easy to see that you are better off with two possible sevens as opposed to four. This is the basics of his stuff and is nothing new. However, with an understanding of polar opposites, there appears to be a way for the shooter end safely more frequently. When I told him that everything we do with the dice doesn't make things change from being random, he agreed, but stated that because results have shown us that dice go off axis, and what works best for the individual, we are already starting from an expectation of "better than random", and by knowing the relationship that exists between various dice arrangements (polar opposites), you can increase your proportion of safe results at least slightly. I argued with the Wizard here, saying that we have no control over how the dice tumble. He agreed with this, but told me that results show by making minor modification, if necessary, it can and does increase result safety. Just like any dice argument, you can check on this by recording results. I would argue that regardless of how good the results are, they are only a sample and are subject to change, likely to move closer to expectation. Since expectation is two safe for every one unsafe, I'm going to try this out and see how it goes. Other than playing yahtzee, the only other time I tossed the cubes at home was when I first got into the Wizard's stuff in order to learn how to identify outcomes, but here comes some more "practice".
