I like dice; they just do not like me. Especially in games, they seem to work against me. Does anyone else have this problem? (I am pretty lucky with cards BTW)

Anyway here is my modest geeklist of dice games that hate me. Please feel free to add your own!!

Hopefully there are more like me (that way I don't feel so lonely) laugh

Don't me how I manage to get AWFUL rolls on a 10-sided die!! Of course, I roll super high numbers for the dog/guard moves and low numbers for me. Also I tend to roll the unlock when I'm not in jail and need to move to get into a room or numbers when I'm stuck in jail. (SIGH!!)

Yes, all 5 dice work against me in this one. I rarely get the bonus on the top and when I do, everyone else (not me!) gets 1 or 2 Yahtzees in that game!

Played and played this in childhood. Could never get the exact rolls to go "home." Oh, when I finally rolled doubles, I usually rolled the 3 doubles!!

One of the main reasons for not liking this game (in addition to how long it takes!) I never land on anything worth buying, but once someone else has a hotel on an expensive property, I roll that each and every time I go around!!! Ugh!

In this wonderful, fast & sadly OOP dungeon-crawler, not only do the dice hate you (I've actually lost the game standing next to the exit as time ran out, trying to a 50% roll on a d6) but the cards & tiles hate you as well.

The game rules actually state that only 15% of characters survive.

I roll abysmally in this game. I can't tell you the number of small villages that have sent my ghost ship back to the wintering box.

I love dice, and I'll keep coming back.

Don't play the Nazi side because you'll roll sixes on the early 2-1 attacks and you'll get Attacker Eliminated (AE).

I always end up getting badly screwed by the dice in the one.
Conversely, my friend faqtotum has never lost a game of this one. He's a good player, I'll grant you that, but he rolls like a motherf$cker!

Let's get past the fact that I played this at all (at the repeated request of SO) to shine a light on the issue at hand: these dice KNOW when I'm rolling and never grant me anything other than 1's or 2's at harvest time. Ever.

They're not loaded..er, un-loaded. They're fully capable of higher rolls. And in fact, I can almost HEAR those dice laughing maniacally at me as they bestow 5's and 6's on my SO.

wait...perhaps my issues are greater than pitiful harvests...

The only game of this that I ever played, I sat there for what was probably ten turns unable to recruit an army due to poor luck. I haven't felt inspired to pull it out again, despite its reputation.

Not the board game - the board game loves me, since all dice in reality usually do what I want them to do.

However the videogame just mocks me with its simulated dicerolls.

Example:

With my dwarves I've got two skinks, one of them the ball carrier cornered at the lizard's finishing zone. It's the lizard's turn.
What does he do?
His level one kroxigor blitzes by dodging out of one tacklezone into two tacklezones. From there on onwards into another tacklezone, onwards he dodges free, runs to my dwarves and beats one of them to the ground - dead.
The non-ball-carrying skink thros a two vs. one block agains one of my dwarves. I may decide whether I want to select "defender stumbles" or "defender down". Dwarf is badly injured.
Ball carrying skink runs flawless through four tacklezones, passes flawless the ball to the line of scrimmage onto a saurus standing in two tacklezones.
The saurus dodges free and hands the ball over to another skink, that scores a touchdown.

Wait - what did I get the turn before when trying to block the ballcarrier with the deathroller?
Oh yeah - a tripleskull and after wasting my reroll a doubleskull + one pushback.

Screw it .. if anyone of you wants to play a game that frustrates more than it brings fun, than the videogame edition of BB is perfect ..
