Join the John Ehret Patriots in New Orleans, Lousiana, USA, in Noticing and Wondering about this Problem of the Week!

The Hopi Indians invented Totolospi, a game of chance. The game is played with three cane dice, a counting board, and a counter for each player. Each cane die can land round side up (r) or flat side up (f).

The moves of the game are determined by tossing the three cane dice with these rules:

Toss Move
three round sides up (rrr) player advances 2 lines
three flat sides up (fff) player advances 1 line
any other toss of the three cane dice player doesn't advance
