Megagame Madness – The dice are rolled

OK so the plan to extend from Cry Havoc but I need some time to think… so I think


When you think of 2d6, you would normally think of a 2 dice each with 1 to 6.

However there are two other interesting dice type I have seen used or just generally can be bought.

I’ve had a look at these sets as I’m looking for a solution to handle an awkward situation with an idea.


Common 2d6

Range on die: 6 (1 to 6)
2d6 Range: 11
50% Success: 7
Min: 2
Max: 12

Average Dice

Average dice consist of a die with 2,3,3,4,4,5 on each side.

The result is not just a narrower range for a d6 just due to the .  The critical thing is that the highest and lowest results are as difficult to get as conventional 2 and 12 in a standard 2d6 roll.

They are not conventional dice but they are not as expensive as the last set of dice.

 

Range on die: 3 (2 to 5)
2d6 Range: 7
50% Success: 7
Min: 4
Max: 10

Negative Number Sum Dice

 The Dice to the left are negative number sum dice and they can come in two forms Even or Odd.

Basically19 either the odd numbers or even numbers are replaced with a negative value.

The ones I have seen are expensive, however they could easily be made using blank dice.

And they can provide a large range of answers but it is not a full range of numbers.  There are gaps towards the centre of the range and toward the high end and low end.

And like the other dice there is only 1 high and 1 low combination of sides.

Range on die: 11 (either -5 to 6 or 6 to -5)
2d6 Range: 22
50% Success: 1, 0 or -1 depending on die combination
Min: -12 to -10
Max: 10 to 12


The key thing it that you can multiple types of 2d6 and each can provide a different range set.

Below the “Join the Pack” is a list of success values at a specific target.
