Hi Larry,

oui, le français est ma langue maternelle;

you are right, I did not take into account the configuration of the dice;
in any case, it can be a matter of convention or left to... arbitrariness

About Fischer's Random Chess, among others, really, I don't discuss the
pertinence of the variant per se, which is perfectly respectable and
interesting, but its practicability in competition because of the
dissymmetry between the games it causes.

'All good things' on board,
'All good things' in space ;)

Best wishes
