Step 1: pick a 1 digit (1-6) number and roll 1 die to record the number of rolls that it takes to get your selected number.
Step 2: pick a two digit number (11-66) and roll 2 dice and record the number of rolls to get your selected number. [Note: Read the dice from left to right as they fall on the table. For example, a 4 and a 3 would read as the number 43.]
