Informatics student from Berlin, Germany, currently acquiring my masters degree. Interested in Java stunts, Erlang + concurrent programming, and computer languages.

Programming languages I am able to program in and like to program in: C, JavaScript, C++, Python, Java and Erlang. (The last two not so much in the last year, though.)

All players could work against one player. Your idea simply won't work.

Thank you very much for you well elaborated answer! Hehe, no, I won't create a million dollars lottery. :-) I just wanted to program a little game of Backgammon and wasn't sure how to do the dicing. Thinking further I came up with this question about M players and N dice. My code now looks as follows: dice.py. Esp. the timing that you spoke of I still have to implement. Thank you again! :-)

Two (or any numbers of) players could work together.

@Byte56, I don't trust the client. I want the algorithm to be "temper prove". But I don't know if that is possible at all.
