The author would like to correct some text in the article above:

Page 10, line 2:-

‘Die X will probably beat Die Y if X’s highest four numbers are greater than the highest four numbers of Y. With this rule, the ‘will probably beat’ relation is cyclic: A > B > C > A.’

Should read:-

‘A die (a 1,…, a 6) has better odds against a die (b 1,…, b 6) if and only if there are more pairs (i, j) such that a i > b j than there are pairs (i, j) such that ai < b j. (See Polymath 2022).’

The author would like to apologize for this error.
