Interesting how hard it is to roll two successes on two dice.

For those interested in statistics, the number of successes rolled follows what is called a binomial distribution. In more general terms, the binomial distribution describes how like you are to obtain X successes from n trials (number of dice) with each trial having chance p of success (1/2, 1/3, or 1/6 depening on blessed, normal, or cursed)

This kind of distribution is really common in a lot of games (Mechants and Marauders is another that comes to mind.)

There are plenty of websites out there that will let you find the exact probability for any numbers X, p, and n.
