I'm sorry, but the title was "Pair 'o Dice Lost" and was about how to deal
with a game of Monopoly (tm) when you land on Boardwalk with a hotel owned
by your stupid brother and get so angry you throw the dice behind the sofa.
(No I never had any therapy for that incident, why do you ask!?)
P.S. Ob Python: anyone implemented a non computer game in Python that had
traditionally used dice?
