Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2824748A1] The two dice are in the form of eight-sided bodies, each with numbers on seven of its eight faces and a logo or publicity message on the eighth. The first die has the numbers 1 to 7, for example, and the second one has numbers 0 to 42 in steps of seven, i.e. 0, 7, 14, 21, etc. When the two dice are rolled the numbers on their top faces will always add up to a number between 1 and 49.

Abstract (fr)

Petit appareillage constitué par un ensemble de deux dés octaédriques réguliers (forme générale) et d'un marquage adapté permettant de générer de manière aléatoire toutes les combinaisons de nombres compris entre 1 et 49 et ce simplement en effectuant mentalement la somme des entiers relatifs affichés par chacun des deux dés. Cet appareillage permet de générer rapidement des séries de nombres aléatoires pour certains joueurs désireux d'optimiser leur espérance mathématique de gains. <IMAGE>
