This comic shows the correct follow-up to the last comic's comment on teaching the players who's really in control - the dice.

Compare to the earlier comic about when the dice go bad.

The original punch-line for this comic was:

But I couldn't work it in anywhere. It is, after all, yet another attempt at humor by parodying a famous movie quote ( Goldfinger). However, xkcd did a better job.

Update: The title was incorrect; it's been fixed. As a reward, I'll mention that this is a last attempt at stretching out the inevitable.

There doesn't seem to be a thread for this chapter. Check for yourself at the forum for chapters.
