well, in my local games workshop, the black dice always seem to get 5s and 6s more often, so has anyone else noticed this, or is it just me?

Hmmmm... sounds like a fluke to me... if you watch dice long enough I think you can see any pattern you like...

Probably not, but I prefer to use the black dice for important rolls anyway. They feel more special. And one of the dice has a seven instead of a six. :rolleyes:

I have found a similar thing with the blue dice that come with the mordhiem box, my regular opponent has forbidden me from using them all at once now...

My black dice seem to roll high too...

Of course if I'm feeling groovy I use my Vegas Dice.

I have couple of friends that fight for the black dice before the game. And yes they both roll a lot better than me with white and red ones.

I prefer coloured dice - my Night Goblins always do better if I use my special green dice for them... Besides, coloured dice make me feel special and good... ;)

And, rabid bunny, I like the suit on your avater. :cool:

True story: I bought some of the black 40K dice back in January and took them to a tournament. In my first game I scored 14 "hits" out of 16 shots with my new scatter dice. I would have won too if my opponent had been a bit more sporting about the final turn :(

A die may "seem" to roll really high, but I bet if you roll it 30 times, record the results, and find the average, it will be the same as any other die (around 3.58 or so).

Assuming of course that it isn't loaded.

Jebus, the Black Dice are dead lucky over here too. There's only five of them inthe store too. I haven't had a ganger die since I started black-ten red-uniting my serious injuries chart in Necromunda.

Are you sure you don't have the settings on grayscal;e rather than 24-bit colour?

No, unfortunately. Still very funny though :cool:. I'm not sure who wrote it.

Back onm topic, I need a purple/black dice/die for my Tzeentchians...
