Hmm, I just realized I didn't add the word 'free'. Would ideally like to find a free solution, though this one is interesting. On thepixiepit.co.uk/scrabble/faqs.html the question "Q I just took my turn, and the score was credited to my opponent, help?" suggests autoreplies are a bad idea?

comment How can I estimate my chances to win a Risk battle?
Your statement "look up your odds after every roll" is actually very deep. The chart assumes you'll fight until you've won or until you're down to one troop. If you stop once the odds are against you, the chart isn't accurate. If you make a chart to compensate, you can then stop when that NEW chart tells you the odds are against you, and so on, ad infinitum. I've done some inconclusive work along these lines: github.com/barrycarter/bcapps/blob/master/bc-calc-risk-odds.m
