Sunday Times Teaser 2720 – Better Tetra

by Michael Fletcher

I have four regular tetrahedral dice with one of the numbers 1, 2, 3 or 4 on each of the sixteen faces. The numbers on each die sum to ten and none of the dice have the same four numbers.

My friend and I play a game in which we each throw a die and win if our face down number is higher.

But, because I am always more likely to win, my friend has changed the rules so that we now throw our die twice and win if the sum of our two face down numbers is higher. He now knows that there is one dice that he can choose that will win more often than the others.

What are the four numbers on this dice?
