How do I calculate the probability of a specific sum of repeated die rolls?

I'm looking to learn how to calculate probabilities for a multi-round dice game. I've researched this question some, and it looks like I might need to know how to use the multinomial distribution, but I can't find any good introductions. Please point me to the most layman-accessible educational material on this subject, and help me to help myself. [more inside]

Games that I can play over Skype with my blind friend?

I'm looking for video games that I could read aloud and describe as I play so that one of my friends who is blind could participate. We would be doing this over Skype. Ideally, we'd like games with multiple choices and decisions that affect the gameplay or story, less linear games and fairly complicated gameplay. We wouldn't want anything in real time, anything that requires coordination or games where the visuals are essential. [more inside]

I like to watch Starcraft II games, what other games should I be following, and how do I get up to speed?

I've begun to watch eSports recently (basically, competitive video game matches), and found them really interesting. For Starcraft II, I have learned how enjoy being a spectator, but it took a lot of effort: I had to play the game, gradually figure out who was worth watching, identify the right YouTube channels, learn the lingo, etc. What other competitive mutliplayer games are worth watching, and how do I get into them?

Game development events like Ludum Dare?

Recently I've discovered Ludum Dare, a game development competition where the focus is on making games based on a theme within a given time constraint. I'm curious if there are other similarly organized game-development events designed to bring together small independent game developers and hobbyists.

Name that Game

I'm trying to find a computer game I vaguely remember. It was an indie game with I think top down combat with mechs. The main feature I remember was the weapon customization was done by sort of wiring components together in a flowchart. I can't for the life of me remember any more useful details, and it's driving me nuts!

Good strategy games for the XBox?

I've just been lent an XBox 360 discovered that I'm utterly, embarrassingly dreadful at First (or Third) Person Shooters. What I have enjoyed beyond all expectations though is Petroglyph's splendid Panzer General: Allied Assault (I'm a big time tabletop and card gamer and own the physical game too). So, lovely hivemind, can you suggest any excellent card/war/strategy games for an XBox I might enjoy just as much? Thanks!

Selling Diablo 3 and Battle.net's Terms of Service

I have a physical, legal copy of Diablo 3 I'm planning on selling on eBay. I always knew that once I got bored of D3 I'd be selling it, so when I registered it on Battle.net I created a whole new GMail & Battle.net account (with a fake name) so I could give them to the buyer as part of the sale.

What A Strange Direction

My partner is new to gaming that isn't point-and-click adventure style. I am looking for games with a very gentle learning curve that might get her more familiar with WASD movement, particularly in 3d. Portal 1 and Quantum Conundrum have proved to be a little too unforgiving too early on with jumping requirements. Any suggestions?
