Description

A pair of standard, pipped, six-sided dice has had its pips painted in three colors. When you roll one of them and count pips of two of the colors, on average, white beats red, red beats blue, and blue beats white. However, when you roll both dice together, red beats white, white beats blue, and blue beats red.
