The rules say to roll off until there is a unique winner and a unique loser. Yet it is possible for two players to have dice on which all six faces have the same value. Admittedly, this is not likely - and if it happens, both players probably made poor choices. But what happens then?

well, unless the value on each face is 3.5 (21/6) then eventually one player will roll a face with a higher value than the other player. Each of the 6 sides might have a corresponding match on the other die, that doesn't mean they will show up at the same time.

Actually, this situation IS remotely possible, because one die face changes either up or down every round. But as you say, you'd have to make some spectacularly stupid choices, and play a lot of rounds.

The shortest path I can think of is to have each player start with a 4,4,4,3,3,3 die, and then have each either decrease all of their 4s to 3s, or increase all their 3s to 4s, which would take a minimum of six rounds. Then you'd have a stalemate.

I hereby recommend you play a maximum of five.
