quirky dice

there are several examples of three or more non-transitive dice

in the long run,
A beats B
B beats C
but A doesn't beat C...

links with Condorcet's paradox

and like 'rock - paper - scissors'
students can consider long term outcomes by entering 'A' or 'B' etc. in the sample space diagrams
 there are several other varieties...
