Cliffside Bunker Battle Dice (UPDATED)

  • Sponsor

    Great news everyone… the molds have been purchased, hit symbol configuration will be the same as 1s, 2s, 3s, and 4s on a regular 6 sided die.

    Hey Everyone,

    We are making all Cliffside Bunker battle dice configurations the same as regular 6 sided dice, this is very important in order to really legitimize these dice during competitive games.

    Can you do rounded edges, reason is we got a bunch of dice floppers that are keen on getting the result they want by hardly rolling the thing, especially a kid called “call shot kid” because he can roll whatever he wants and calls it. The rounded dice will keep him honest.

    PLEASE ROUNDED DICE

    Yes… they will be rounded dice, just like the dice that come with all Axis & Allies games.

  • so on my battle board I could just put a color dot on the 1 thru 4 to match the dice?  are you (YG) going to do the bunker battle boards like that or are you going to print out special ones? just wondering cause your stuff tends to be cool and very functional to game play.

    We are most definitely working on a battle board for these dice, HBG is designing it and will be available through them just like the dice will be available through HBG… Although, the colored stickers on your existing battle board is a smart idea.


  • They look etched into the dice.
    Won’t that throw off the balance?
    The unetched sides will be slightly heavier now.
    Otherwise, great idea.

    By that argument, rolling a 1 on a normal die is more likely than rolling a 6.


  • Those look AWESOME! I am definitely in the market to by a set or two….

    Quick Question: Will you also offer a 5-hit die for the Jet-Power tech in the 2nd Edition game?

    Unfortunately we don’t have the resources to gamble on a 5th type of dice, we have to order 30,000 just to get the retail cost down to something reasonable. Maybe if we sell out and need a second run, we might look into it… but for now, you will need the regular dice for your jet fighters attacking at 5 or less.

    They are etched, just like pips on regular dice are etched… any other option besides etched is poor quality in my opinion.

    If it really is a problem, grab a siler sharpie and put a dot on the 5 spot. If you dont like it in the end, it comes off with and alcohol wipe.


  • Or you can use the 1 die and say that misses are actually hits.

    I say that quote all the time… (LOL)


  • Actually, if you look at proper dice, the “1 pip/dot” is drilled deeper than the “six pips/dots” so that all have the same amount of material removed.
    If you look at “chinese” dice, they have a larger “1 pip/dot” to offset the “6 pips/dots”
    The weight difference may be minimal, but it does affect the results.

    This will be apparent when “lightly” rolling dice as compared to a more aggressive fling.

    This is why serious gamers use backgammon or vegas quality dice. It ensures a proper randomness in rolls.

    I don’t think normal dice (such as regular A&A dice) have a 1 pip that’s 6 times as deep as each of the 6 pips.

    I understand the science behind it all, but we are only Axis & Allies players in a basement game room bunker, not craps players at a casino. Besides, Star Wars Rebellion dice are very similar to our dice, and Fantasy Flight holds tournaments for that game all the time.

    There are two distinctions involved here: the one between precision vs. non-precision dice (precision dice being manufactured to high symmetry tolerances and having a completely uniform density on all sides, regardless of the number of pips), and the one between squared and rounded dice (rounded ones having the advantage of causing less potential damage than sharp-edged dice to the surface on which the’re rolled).  Precision backgammon dice have both advantages: they’re precise like square casino dice, but they’re rounded and smaller and thus have a softer impact on the rolling surface.
