I read the thread's posts and I see two similarities:
- I'm running Linux Mint as well, but LM20.2 Cinnamon
- my locale:
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8

The result for apt list gnubg is:
gnubg/focal,now 1.06.002-4build1 amd64  [installiert]
(=installed), which I obtained from the LM repos.

I'm not really sure what to tell them, i.e. what other data I could provide them with, other than the ttp://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/gnubg/gnubg/randomorg.c?view=log (and its rev. 1.6 entry) URL and the URL to this ticket #.
Can I switch this ticket from private to public for that matter?
(I'm slightly confused, since it says "Privacy: Public" for https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?61343
and I know for sure that I selected "Private" when I opened this report)

That would be the option I'd turn to if the exchange with the LM team wasn't fruitful, yes.

This looks like it is the issue described here:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnubg/2020-08/msg00000.html

This has been fixed, but this was after release 1.06 and there is none more recent at this time.

You selected Linux as operating system in the bug report ; if you use gnubg as provided by your distribution you could open a bug report there and give them pointers to this one and to http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/gnubg/gnubg/randomorg.c?view=log (and its rev. 1.6 entry).

If you built it yourself from the 1.06 sources, you could pull the randomorg.c file from the above URL and replace the one from 1.06 by it.

Setting a match to e.g. winning score of 5, most often if not always, once one player reaches a game score of 3 (or so), the game all of a sudden decides to "Your dice generator isn't working. Failing back on RNG_MERSENNE", despite it not complaining about http://www.random.org usage when the game starts.
Nice game, but this throws some huge spanner in the works.
