Is there anything that I can say or do to persuade you to re-consider switching from your proposed 10 sided die to a 12 sided die?
1. Converts – If we were to survey a 1,000 A&A gamers (who have played thousands of games with the traditional 6 sided die) and asked them which die (either 12 sided or 10 sided) would they have an earlier time converting to when trying to learn the new game of A-A&A? Would you be surprised that at least 70% of them would say that their preference would be a 12 sided die mostly BECAUSE the attack and defense factors of “most” units used in A-A&A are easier to relate to because most values are just doubled the value that used in the MB & AH A&A games?
2. Appearance – If we were to survey a 1,000 A&A gamers by putting a 10 sided die next to a 12 sided die, and asking them which die was “more appealing”? Would you be surprised that at least 70% of them would say that their preference is to gravitate towards the more shapelier rounded 12 sided die (as opposed to lop sided odd shape 10 sided die)… would this sway you?
3. Rolling preference - If we were to survey a 1,000 A&A gamers by putting a 10 sided die in one of their hands and a 12 sided die in their other hand, and asking them which die was “more appealing”? Would you be surprised that at least 70% of them would say that their preference is to gravitate towards the 12 sided die because it “rolls’ better in their hand and on the board (as opposed to the sharp jagged points/edges of a 10 sided die that pokes them in the palm of your hand and skips oddly when the die hits the board)…. would this sway you?
4. Cost - If the cost of a 12 sided dice were less than 10 sided dice to manufacture, would this be a factor that would sway you?
By now I know you are thinking that my above comments are starting to smell a lot of horse manure, but you can blame a guy for trying. …. BUT please do me a favor and TRULY ponder the following before making your final decision.
The main reason “WHY” you have decided to switch from the traditional 6 sided die to a larger denomination die is because you (as well as many of my colleges) have come to the conclusion that playing A-A&A with extra units on a 6 sided die is just too CROWDED (i.e. Units start to lose their identity when the attack and defense factors of each of the playing pieces are not differentiated enough. If the decision has been made to use something other than a 6 sided die, does it make sense to not “MAXIMIZE” the advantage of using a 12 sided die versus a 10 sided die?

Or just present such an excellent argument like the one above…
Thanks. If I convert from the d6 I’ll make em d12’s
I agree with just about everything you said.
Imperious – So you thought you’d gang up on me too. You’ll learn that I don’t make or state DIRECTIVES… I just try to find my way through this thing called life and as I move along its provided path I try to do the best I can. I'll live the directives to the guys who know exactly what they are doing. That's not me.
Goody! I like it. In the matter of The People vs. 10-sided dice... the prosecution rests it's case! Well done AxisNDallas.Larry wrote:If I convert from the d6 I’ll make em d12’s
Although very true, a heavy "preliminary bombardment" on the subject had been lobbed by Elbowmaster, IL and others. ~ZP
