comment 4-4 high approach joseki question
But, of course, "best" depends on full-board context. If the top is important to W, she could play 8 at E16 and push through. But it's purely W's choice at that point.

comment 4-4 high approach joseki question
Agreed. Black deviates from joseki with 5 (typically at C17), and looks thoroughly punished.

comment What deck should be used for a beginner in Netrunner
Ah, that makes sense! I was really confused because Jinteki is a corp, and I thought the "runs" was referring to how a runner runs, or maybe saying that the deck "runs poorly" like an engine "runs poorly", just without the "ly". Apologies. (It reads very clearly now, of course.)

comment Clocking Android Netrunner
... 3 months later, this was definitely a good answer. To get up to a decent speed, we just needed a bit more practice and to get familiar with the cards we were using.

comment What's the most intuitive way to use a die for a pass/fail test?
Disregarding common (I have no data, so no idea), I think the easiest method to understand is roll 1 die, and have a certain threshold for success (e.g., 4 or higher). I think associating higher numbers with better outcomes is natural, so and I think spelling it out as "4 or higher" rather than ">3" or ">=4" makes things plenty clear, even for non-gamers.

comment What's the most intuitive way to use a die for a pass/fail test?
@Joe But method and probability are so closely linked. Your first even/odd single die suggestion would be okay if you only ever want a 50:50 chance, but it generalizes really poorly. "Roll one die, you need a 4 or higher" does the same thing, but the method lends itself to adjustment to different success probabilities (1/6, 2/6, etc.). Using two dice seems completely unnecessary unless you want more control over the success probability than one die allows, in which case it's the only way to go.
