As a D&D player (and DM) from a while back I have seen many dice of different
sides. None have Heads or Tails on them? Are we talking about coins here,
or normal 6 sided dice? What is a head on a 6 sided dice? Perhaps this is a
trick question and the answer is the probability is the same for both, namely
zero since such a die is undefined.
