The sides can be above 7 but the total must be 21 and no side may be negative.
The reason I said there is no point is because 8 and 7 give you the same chance of winning so does 9 and so on.
Sides can also be 0

I think with 6 candidates he counts from 6 to 1 in which case 525.
I do think baldwine could have made the questions clearer

I have been wondering about this for some time but I will not post this in the help me area so those there don't think I need help.
The sides of a typical 6 sided die add up to 21. So with a 6 sided die whose sides add up to 21, what is the highest probability you can get to win in a die rolling contest against a normal die. Ex 0,0,3,6,6,6 has a 17/36 chance of winning. You can not put negative numbers, and I see no point of using numbers above 7.
