Hey Improbable People, I wanted to let you guys know about a program that I wrote to find the best pile to pick when playing the Stones game at Raven's Inn. Averagely, these were the results:
Like Pile:
Wins: 21.7%
Losses: 22.3%
Ties: 56%

Unlike Pile:
Wins: 22.4%:
Losses: 21.6%
Ties: 56%

I made the computer simulate around a hundred million games and I compiled the results. Just wanted to share this for anyone who wanted to see if they could make some money off of the the Stones game.

Neat! Reminds me of this, come to think of it. I suppose your results are confirmed.
