I voted for “I want other items (please list)”, among others.
Young Grasshopper had this great idea in one of his very informing videos. We need coloured dice with hit markers. For example:
- ordinary BLUE dice with one side marked with a crosshair, explosion, skull or something to indicate a hit/kill
- ordinary GREEN dice with two sides marked as said
- ordinary YELLOW dice with three sides marked as said
- ordinary RED dice with four sides marked as said
- ordinary BLACK dice with five sides marked as said
The point is that the different colour of each dice represents a differant number of hits.
If I attack with two inf, one art, one tank and one tac, I today have to roll
- one dice @ 1
- two dice @ 2
- one dice @ 3
- one dice @ 4
That is four rolls and I must remember how many hits for every roll. Then the oponent does the same thing. This takes time.
However, if HBG had dice as explained above, I could simply grab one blue dice, two green, one yellow and one red. I could roll them all at once, in one throw. And then just count the total number of crosshair, explosions or whatever the dice are showing to represent hits.
This would save a lot of time in each game!! Subs, AAA, offshore bombardment etc might need to be rolled individually, but we would still save a lot of time on all other combat rolls.
Young Grasshopper also said that the combat board should have different colours for each section, to make it easier to see what colour we should roll for @ 2 and so on. That would be nice, but I don’t think that is needed, after we learn the colour of the dice representing two hits on it’s six sides.
