The Dice Game by Goldrat
Cengiz Pak, Strategy Consultant, Turkey

I am using Goldrat's dice game in my classes. It is very helpful for the students to understand variation and the 6 sides of a dice. Is there anybody using different variations?

Yes, I am also playing it by reducing variation (only allowing 3 or 4 products to pass each throw) and by using dices with more than 6 sides, which increases variation. Even more proof of the influence of variation.

Yes, sometimes I am also using two dices, asking participants which station they prefer and sometimes reducing the possibilities like you.

The dice game as presented in the book "Velocity" is very helpful and I use this version in my seminars. I have even written an excel program simulating this.
