    I have googled it. You think I’m out to make myself look smart, but apparently I can’t be bothered to do simple research? Really? The web is littered with forum posts explaining the exact same reasons as I have why a spin-down is not intended to be rolled like a real die.

    Again, we might need to re-evaluate terms like “common,” because nobody I know would consider a spin-down a die. The only people I can imagine doing so are those who have little or no actual experience with them. 
    Also: not certain situations, all situations. Because it’s not a die.

    Not dice, just spin-down counters. It’s not actually a die - and is prohibited from being used as a die - because of the deliberate arrangement of numbers on it. Some people are just stretching to suck all the joy out of this for me.

    If you re-read my post you can see the exact same kind of clarifying language.

    Would you consider it obtuse to presume what my own intent is?
    No offense, but it’s foolish in the extreme to project the opinions voiced here as those held by the gaming community as a whole. Especially since the most vocal posters on these forums are a minority of FFG apologists and irrational Magic haters, who take every opportunity to decry things they have little experience with let alone understand, in anything but the most abstract sense.

    Why are we even arguing at this point.  If he wants to use spindowns, how does that affect us?  At most, he'll be refused entry to tournaments, and that doesn't affect us at all.

    You have something better to do on a forum? Aside from belittling others, that is. 
    If you need the recognition of others to feel good about yourself, you’re in the wrong place. But I tell you what, come visit my LGS and I’ll take you out for a beer, and after I show you my long list of personal accolades you can change your mind. Or not. I genuinely don’t care, because I know who I am and what I’ve accomplished, and your opinion of me will never change that.

    I’m on my phone, friend. Can’t do your arguments justice at present, I’m afraid.

    The people I play games with, including local FFG event organizers, are avid gamers with a wealth of experience that spans multiple genres. Given the breadth of our collective experience, and reasonable level of open-mindedness (which appears to be in short supply here), I’d say yeah, I stand a fair chance of making my case.

    You’re also not representative of the M;tG community, because I don’t know anybody who uses them as dice, or isn’t aware of why we’re specifically not allowed to use them as such. In short, the fact that you’re doing it wrong with the tacit acceptance of those around you does not make it okay.

    If you're arguing intent, I suppose. Look, FFG might have said something about why they won't allow dice, but not in the tournament document. Maybe they'll change it, and if they do I'm sure they'll add spin-downs to the list of no-nos. All I'm saying is that right now, without a more specific definition on their part, spin-downs don't qualify as dice. Seems to pretty much be the consensus among everybody who actually uses them, to say nothing of actual dictionaries.

    Maybe, but it also proves rather emphatically as to why it’s not a die. You don’t roll it, which is the very nature of a die.

    Well best of luck, I don't see any that would allow it that wouldn't allow any dice to begin with. The only I can see allowing it would also allow any old dice as they both fall under the same line of logic for banning dice to begin with. Local store games and stuff though you're likely right, they probably won't care, I just don't see any larger official tournaments allowing it without outright ignoring the dice ban rationality.

    I just realized that means I can use my M;tG spin-down counters to track aember, since it’s not technically a die.

    That’s your definition. No official KeyForge document defines dice.

    Owing to my finite generosity, morbid curiosity, and jovial disposition, I have decided to gift 2 sealed Keyforge decks to whichever forum poster crafts the best or most entertaining origin story for their Archon's name. Posters must provide the name of a real Archon that they possess along with a narrative piece of fiction, in a post in this very thread, intended for public consumption. The selected winner must also provide, via email, photographic evidence confirming the existence of aforesaid Archon and actual possession of that deck. I will be the sole and final arbiter of who is awarded the prize for best short story, though I will take into account other posters' feedback, so please make your opinions known! The details:
    Start date: Right now!
    End date: January 1st 2019, 12 PM (noon) PST. 
    Requirements: 500-1000 words, not including a preface or title containing the Archon's name. I will not accept submissions via email or private message. 
    The prize will be shipped within a week of the end date, assuming all of the previous conditions (including photographic evidence) are met, and barring any local product shortages. If I've missed anything, or you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here. I look forward to reading your stories - good luck!

    No, the Marshal. TO only in cases where they did not appoint a Marshal and are forced to take on the role of Marshal themselves..
     
    if you’re gonna ruleslawyer, at least do it right.

    If you win, probably. No need for pictures until it comes time to award the prize.
