I love games, but I hate dice. They vex me so. Especially while playing Settlers of Catan. If you’re twice as likely to roll a seven as you are a four, then why in the hell has four come up five turns out of the last six? Etc etc. You get the idea.
Now, is this sort of thing useful? Who knows. Probably half the fun of a game like Settlers is watching people fume when threes and elevens come up over and over and over again while those sixes and eights that they so wisely choose at the beginning of the game go fallow. So you know me: I like to destroy fun.
