This chapter shows how risk can be introduced into the rules of a game by admitting chance moves. The Monty Hall problem is offered as an example. Elementary probability theory is reviewed, and random variables are explained in terms of lottery tickets. The games of Duel and Parcheesi are analyzed as non-trivial examples of games with chance moves.
