About
30 is a drinking game that uses dice. An explanation of the rules can be found here. We are trying to find the best strat(egy) for the game. To do this, we first created a syntax to describe a huge number of strats. We have then begun testing those strats, and analyzing the data. Because of the simplicity of the game, it is possible to run a huge number of simulations of the various strats. This makes us able to determine with high certainty how well each strat works, and discovering which of two strats is better even when the average difference is very small.
We are currently in the simulation stage. We will publish the data and our analyses when they are done.
