That means nothing, sure we know where at least two of the dice are, but
what if they're from a game of RISK? For all we know, there's one more
defensive die out there, as well as TWO ATTACK DICE? Now I personally
don't want to start fighting a battle unless I know that there are or
are not attack dice, and if there are attack dice, I want to know their
precise whereabouts. There's nothing quite so horrifying as being
ambushed by attack dice.
Back when I was merely a Corporal in the Grand Army of Minnesota, I took
part in what was supposed to be a minor skirmish with the Wisconsinite
forces. We didn't know it at the time, but they had the dice from
SEVERAL DOZEN sets of RISK. Luckily, I managed to roll a six, but the
other members of the Platoon weren't so lucky. Even now as Overlord the
screams of those men as they rolled ones and twos haunts me at night.
