The temperature of {x|−x} is x, not 2x. Any hot game H can be written in the form H = C + {x|−x} for some cold game C and some number x; the temperature of H is then x, and H is written as C±x. Re-analyze the {10|2} + {5|−5} example in these terms. —Dominus (talk) 15:33, 14 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Did the first. But the latter is only correct for hot games whose left and right options are numbers; many games cannot be written as C±x. —Mark Dominus (talk) 04:44, 17 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The definition of temperature is rather involved, and does not appear in the article. Add it? —Mark Dominus (talk) 04:42, 17 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
