I've seen some true spreadsheet wizards around here, maybe you cna give me a quick pointer to the right function.
I want to calculate the odds of rolls on the dice referenced in this thread. Soooo.... Odds of at Least 1- 6 Skulls, White and Black Shields with 1-6 dice being rolled.
I thought I'd use the binom.dist function to figure that, for example:
=1-BINOM.DIST(2,6,.5,TRUE)
In this case, the odds of at least 2 Skulls on 6 dice being rolled. This one is givng me odds of a tad over 65%. Now......if I manually calculate it I come with something closer to 87.5%
So either it or I am wrong....Am I using the wrong formula? Perhaps my Stats have left me completely over the years!

Thanks!
Any thoughts on how to calculate this for the dice sets with 2 Skulls, Shields?
I'm thinking this:
=1-BINOM.DIST(0,6,(2/6),TRUE)*(1-BINOM.DIST(0,6,(1/6),TRUE))
That would be the odds of getting at least 1 Skull with six dice (purple, in this case). It's distribution is: 2Skulls, 1D-Skull, 3-White/Black Shields
