The Joys of Random Number Generators (Catan)

For those that don’t recognize the screen, this is from the game “Catan” on the XBOX 360 Live. It based on the board game “Settlers of Catan” and is a very accurate recreation of that game. The screenshot is of an analysis of all the die rolls during the game. The dark blue background shows a “likely” distribution. The light blue foreground shows the “actual” distribution. The likelyhood of no “8”s being rolled is very small.

Yes, I had a Big City on a tile with an 8. And there was not a single one rolled in the game.

I lost the game.
