    • What number would you like to roll now? Do you think you are likely to get it or not?
    • What number don’t you want to roll? Do you think you will get it?
    • Do all the numbers on the dice have the same chance of coming up? Are some numbers more likely?
  • Alternatively you could replay your favourite game from Day 1, 2 or 3.
