So, you're playing a game of AH by yourself, no one around, that knows how to play anyway. You're in the middle of an intense game when you get to a tricky roll. You look and you roll and--you fail. Oh but--what's this? You forgot to take into account your Skill card! Oh, well, you can't make a fair roll just rolling one extra dice, now can you? After all, you're entitled to roll them all at once! Nothing to do but roll the same check with the additional dice--and it won't cost you clue tokens since, well, you aren't technically making the same roll, right?
Has this happened to you? I know it's happened to me a few times. I bring it up mostly because I want to get it out there that I do this but also to inquire as to group play too. I recently had a game with a pair of new players who are more casual gamers and play for pure fun. They had a string of bad rolls and so there was a few times they asked me to let them re-roll. I did since we were in a 'party' mood but I do have to ask, how often do you, especially with new players, allow this sort of thing? Should we allow this sort of thing?
