The Bayesian statistics of … little plastic pigs

I used to love this game.  Apparently there’s a whole cottage industry out there centered around the statistical analysis of the pig “rolls.”  This particular analysis is Bayesian.  I think I need to get another copy of this game and add the pigs to my odd little collection of dice.  While they’re not technically dice, you roll them as if they were.  This particular analysis, in fact, is titled Solving the Dice Game Pig: an introduction to dynamic programming and value iteration.
