      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Additional Dice

135 posts in this topic

 Hi,

As a semi-avid Descent and DOOM player, I really appreciated the extra dice sets that were on sale - because you can never have enough dice!

So I would be very happy if there'd be additional Descent 2nd edition dice sets. I'd be sure to order 5 sets.

I contacted FFG, and they told me they'd forward the idea to sales to show that there is demand for such a product.  Maybe the community can show how much demand there is by replying to this topic.

Please respond with something like "I would buy n sets" if (and only if) you intend to buy them.  Thanks!

Dirk

FIVE sets?!?  Jeez, do you guys not like to touch stuff handled by others in your group? :)

I'm SURE FFG will release these though.  They pretty much have for every other game.

I too am in for additional dice sets.  And yes, there are members of our group that are ***very*** superstitious … don't want to touch someone else's "bad" dice set … LOL

Descent 1 took a fair bit of room to play and its natural for players to set dice beside them which is often out of reach from other players.

Decent 1 you would have your stats and equipment that would always use the same dice so it was nice to always have it at hand.

 

Heroes don't like Overlords messing with their dice and vice versa

I have four Dicesets for my Descent 1-Game. It is good to have the Dice you need by your side.

I would by 3 additional Sets for my Second Edition.

Extra dice are a good thing at any table. Ever tried playing an pen and paper rpg with a single set of dice with one copy of each? It's a royal pain in the butt.

I'd definitely get at least 2 extra sets. I'm sure FFG will oblige as they did with Descent 1e, just not sure how long after release it will happen. Hopefully someone makes a good Android app to last until then.

I actually had a post on this same subject… that appears to have been removed from the boards. If I wasn't so certain that I had put it up and people had responded I'd think I was going crazy.

None the less, I would purchase at least 1 set, possibly two. I know one of the people I played Descent 1st Edition with would purchase his own set as well.

They would be foolish not to come out with more dice for us to buy.  I think that anyone who buys the game will for sure buy extra dice.  I find it strange that they did already have that for something for us to pre-order already.

 I would get 4 extra sets. I played this game two times at Epic Games in Centerville, Ohio as they were had a Demo going. One set for 5 players was not enough and we were always asking or rolling dice to another player. I think each player should have his own set as well as OverLord. Personally I like each having their own set in any game I play and enough dice where you usually do not have to roll some and then roll again. I often have different colored dice for the player and different for the monster if you are rolling for each such as in ATOE of Fortune and Glory. For Arkham Horrow each player usually has 2 sets or 10 dice each but sometimes there we do have to roll some extra. I bought the AH special Elder Sign dice for each player up to 4. In most games I almost never use the dice that came with the set unless they are special like in Descent. I also like to pick different colors with other games to play with each time although when I bought a bunch of extra dice I had in mind certain colors for different games I had.

As far as Descent Demo today it was really fun. I had the version one but never had played it, going to sell it and get the Version 2 as I like the dungeon tiles, smaller monsters, even though some are still large. I like the cards replacing many of the extra tokens of Version 1. Everyone talked today of how the game seemed to be balanced no matter what Heros were playing with other Heros. People already had their favorites.

 BTW, one of the guys was at Fantasy Flight Games last week and said almost everyone asked for extra dice when one of the designers said they would probably make them if their was enough interest.

They'll make them if there is enough interest? Really? They couldn't hardly keep the 1E extra dice in stock and with the changes in 2E everyone will be rolling the blue attack dice. And they wonder if there will be demand for extra dice? Sounds like a delaying tactic until they get the base game in stock. How can they not make extra sets available?

Oh, I will be buying at least 2 sets of extra dice, maybe more.

I'd probably buy 2-4 more sets. I bought 3 of the 1st edition dice sets and that ended up being perfect. But I need to play 2nd edition several times before deciding how many extra are necessary.
