So, with a booster you get one die. But it seems like you need more for a character to be worth using. Can you just get more die, or is it always a blind draw with boosters? That's the only part of the collecting of this game that confuses me.

Buying known sets/lots off Ebay (and such) removes the blind/random aspect of collecting.

If you want specific dice for a specific character, you can purchase them from third-party sellers. CSI, for example, sells individual card/die combos, so you can usually purchase the Common version of the card for like $0.25 just to get the die.

From Wizkids themselves, the only way to guarantee anything is the Starters or the Team Packs. They each come with a pre-determined mix of 8 characters (with 3 cards each) and two dice for them. Everything else is blind draw from boosters.

As mentioned, you can pretty easily find Common/Uncommon sets on eBay for decent prices, sometimes even Common/Uncommon/Max Dice (typically 4 dice/character). Another more expensive option is buying an entire Gravity Feed at once. There is definitely still randomness, but you can count on (generally) almost 2 full Common sets, a full Uncommon set (perhaps missing 1-2 cards), approximately half the Rare cards, and 1-2 Super-Rares. This ratio has held pretty firmly for every set that has a 90-ct Gravity Feed (so, everything other than AvX).

Thanks so much!! I was wondering if there were any sellers out there for this. I played magic for awhile and finding sellers for that was easier.
