Now, the chances of a player winning are just 1/4, with random picks.

However, if only three people play, and one of them takes two shopping lists, do they have a greater or lesser chance of winning? Instinctively I would say if completing one shopping list is enough, they have a 1/2 chance of winning, as they effectively represent two players. But if they have to complete both lists to win...is it harder or easier? They get a larger pool of cards that are good for them, but they have double the items to find. I can't think how to work out the exact probability, but my son asked me and I'd like to work it out!
