Two dice (1d20+1d8)
This method was devised by Jason A. Wolcott and recorded in the I Ching methods page on the Lucky Mojo site.
It uses two dices: one with 20 faces (1d20) and one with eight faces (1d8) which are very easy to find being commonly used for bard games.
It proceeds as follows:
  1. Roll the dice;
  2. Draw the line:
    • If the 20 sided die shows an even number (2,4,...,20), draw  ;
      • If the 8 sided die shows 1, it's a moving line
    • If the 20 sided die shows an odd number (1,3,...,19), draw  ;
      •  If the 8 sided die shows 6, 7 or 8, it's a moving line
  3. Repeat steps 1-2 other five times drawing the hexagram from the bottom to the top

Probabilities

The 20 sided die gives the nature of the line (yin or yang) with probability 1/2. The process is designed to give the same probability of the Method of 16 one:
Prob(6) = 1/2 * 1/8 = 1/16
Prob(8) = 1/2 * 7/8 = 7/16
Prob(7) = 1/2 * 5/8 = 5/16
Prob(9) = 1/2 * 3/8 = 3/16
Prob(yin) = Prob(yang) = 1/2

Variations

Since the the 20 sided die is only used for even/odd probability it can be replaced by any die with an even number of faces.

  1. Casino, initially, a public hall for music and dancing; by the 우리카지노 second half of the nineteenth century, a group of gaming or gambling rooms. We are a video gaming companies supplier company and after working on quantity of} titles over the years, we have gotten somewhat good at it! We have in depth experience working on 450+ titles across various genres. To go the extra mile and interact potential players, why not give them the ability to look at their pals play and even ship notes of encouragement? This can let new participant be taught from their mates, or simply show some help.
