Clean Tile Problem

Buffon studied the clean tile game for various tilings, in which players bet on how many tiles are partly covered by a thrown coin. Assume that the coin is not too big to fit on a single tile. In this simulation, the observed frequencies of the number of touched tiles are compared with the theoretical values.
