Won't you need an initial estimate for Bayes, and then improve that estimate on each result?

You can already guess the 1:20 for the initial roll you don't need to do.. then look to the next roll to get two in a row, (19 chances of failure), then a final 50:50 hope for the last '20' with a 1:10 chance.

Needs a few more unknowns that need determining by measurement and Bayes update. Maybe the dice is weighted? If it was, how much would you pay per throw to give confidence of the weighting?

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
