Feel your anger, need oppinion

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Since the word "dice" in the text has no "s" does it mean:

-1 You count the number of blank on ONE dice (Check all 6 faces)

-2 You count the number of blank "rolled" on all dice on table.

I know most people plays #2, but grammatically it could really be #1

thanks in advance

Chakan

Actually nearly every English Dictionary printed after 1970 has Dice as both the singular and plural. Even in this game there are one or two cards that say dice for singular rather than die. As such I would never take this as meaning anything one way or the other.

Perhaps more so as you do not count the number of blanks on the table, but the number of blanks showing on your opponents dice. This may be 0 or more, silly you if you play it while your opponent has no dice showing blank, but it may be done. So you get a number and then you can remove that many dice from your opponents pool. Probably those that don't show blanks, but again who knows. I removed a Poe Dice while it was blank, so again you can and sometimes should remove those dice that are blank.

In french:

Singular: Un, Une, Le, La ... Dé

Plurar: Des, Les... Dés

So clearly its plural dice

The important word here is "showing".
 

Look at that term's descripton in page 21 of the RRG

Thanks for reference!

No, no.  The phrase "one of your" always uses a plural noun.  For example, you would say "I am going to eat one of your fries," not "I am going to eat one of your fry."  Not a single one of those cards uses "dice" as a singular noun.

Good catch. You're right.

Well, I would, if they'd give us some Destiny avatars. At least give us our signatures back! I already have my avatar if I could pick my own:

I'd go with the art from Boundless Ambition...easily my favorite.

Is there another way to word the card so that they remain consistent?

Why go to all the trouble to use the word die because it is singular and then have to rely on the context of it's use to understand that dice is meant as a singular.

It wouldn't make sense for me to say "remove one of my shoe". It wouldn't make sense to say "remove one of my die". In that context I think you would use the plural.

So you can remove a shoe?

You can't remove a die from the pool?
