are you saying you'd like something like this:

Y Y N Y N N N Y N Y Y Y Y N N Y N N N Y N


That is acceptable. Though I would prefer a pattern easier to scan with my eyes:

YYnYnnnYnYYYYnnYnnnYn is the same as above but easier to study.

Even better would be something like:
YY n Y nnn Y n YYYY nn Y nnn Y n; or
2y 1n 1y 3n 1y 1n 4y 2n 1y 3n 1y 1n.

Also, it would be useful to have the "natural" passes (ie 7, 11) indicated. When I was doing my crap shooting, I used the inside chip slot to hold my chips and the outside slot as a makeshift recording device. Every time a "pass" or "don't" was made, I placed a chip in the outside slot with the face of the chip parallel to the long axis of the slot. For a pass I leaned the chip out and for a don't I leaned the chip in. For a natural, I used a red chip instead of a white one.

This way it was easy for me to see if the table was chopping, or if everyone was making 2-3 passes before seven-out or if there were long runs one way or the other. That is how I chose my betting strategy. I read the table.

How many trials would you like?

200 would probably do the trick. I don't know how you will be transferring the results to the board. I don't want you to be typing a whole lot of numbers several times as we work this out. But, if you can just do some kind of scan or data transfer, 200 would be nice.

every dice roll (and thus every outcome) will be randomly generated. When you give me a strategy I'll be testing against a newly generated sequence of rolls.

I understand each test will be against a new sequence. I assume you will start a seed number which will become a sequence like 4, 9, 5, 2, 12, 7 then record a "don't" because the shooter didn't make his point (4). If, instead, you are simply going to generate Y's and n's on the basis of some statistical formula, that's fine.
