I am loving the game so far. But I have encountered many situations during battles that more than 4 dice were needed to complete the fight. We obviously re roll some of the dice to get the remaining results, but it slows down the flow of the game. I am just curious why more dice weren't included? I can't imagine the profit margin would have been ruined adding 2 or 3 more dice. And are spare dice going to be offered for sale?

I have wondered this myself. FFG will probably come out with dice packs or something.

Perhaps FFG is going to release a second starter box with two other factions and other accessories including dice so that it is a stand-alone product instead of an expansion to this base game.  (Pure speculation and I am dreaming)

I hope for a dice booster but for now rerolling dice doesnt really impact my game flow at least not by more than 3 or 4 seconds. LOL.

I agree with you but to have included...like 2 more dice wouldn't have bankrupt FFG and would have made all buyers a bit more happy.

Game is great anyways but more dice would've been great!

I agree, I love the game but they went cheap on us with those dices. An extra Dice or two wouldn't have cost them much. At least you know that a dice pack is coming!

Just like x-wing, they will probably release a separate dice set for Battlelore: link

For my first few games, I was fine with 4 dice, but the more I play, the more annoying it is. I mean, usually when you need to roll 6 dice, most of the first roll have no effect, but yesterday I had a roll where every die did something and trying to keep track of it all took more effort than I wanted to expend. Is it doable? Sure. Would I prefer more dice? Yes.

And there are the dice packs. Predictions correct. 12 dice will be much smoother to use. Its a shame there were only 4 in the base game. It was no where near enough.
