Dice Rolling: What are the Probabilities for 2D6?

It's useful to know what your chances are of being successful on a dice roll using 2 six-sided dice (also known as 2D6). Here are the probability statistics that you need to know:
Chances of Rolling           Percentage
2 2.78%
3 5.56%
4 8.33%
5 11.11%
6 13.89%
7 16.67%
8 13.89%
9 11.11%
10 8.33%
11 5.56%
12 2.78%

So, your best chances are of rolling a seven.  You are, in fact, six times more likely to roll it than the lower probabilities of 2 or 12. If you had to rely on a dice roll for any situation where you got to to choose the predicted outcome, it makes sense to opt for seven as the most likely choice to succeed. This would be followed by either six or eight, then five or nine, then four or ten, then three or eleven and finally two or twelve.
Naturally, these probabilities or odds are a guide and can not be relied upon.  There is a very good chance, though, that the more two dice are rolled, these outcomes will be seen.
