Really love the system. The open back and forth between GM and players because of the system is great! Being able to influence the GM with your dice rolls is pretty nifty!

Love the custom dice, very intuitive once you get what the symbols mean.

One thing though, the stickers on the dice don't stay on very well. Only one play through and I feel they are already going to fall off soon. Put them on blank white chessex dice and they aren't sticking very well.

 

And well, a last thing about the dice that our play group noticed…

 

 

It cannot be unseen! I'll be hoping to roll Snoopy's during all my checks!

 

Some of the rules and wording need to be cleaned up a bit. Read flavor text about a weapon mod that was commonly used on Hold Out Blasters…but Hold Out Blasters have 0 Hard Points? Other than that, I look forward to my subsequent sessions!

Well, they'll have actual dice with the Beginner's box. The stickers were just a stopgap measure. You could always roughen the surface a bit before applying the stickers and trim them down with to smaller than the face. The edges seem to be what allows them to lift back up.

 You can paint the stickers over with a clear sealant of some sort (matte/gloss finish used with minis, clear nail polish, etc). Thst will prevent the stickers from peeling off!

One of the weirdest stopgap measures I've ever seen.  FFG knew they had the license, knew they were gonna make the game, knew when they wanted the Beta to come out.  *shrugs* None of these things are a surprise, so, what gets me is why they didn't have the dice ready to go when the Beta was.

In addition to that, when they were looking into Dice Roller Apps, I cannot for the life of me understand why they'd have one made for smartphones, but none for Windows platforms.  Really makes me scratch my head.
