And if not, anyone interested in getting some BGG MDMing in after we get our hands on this next week?

How would play by forum work with a dice game?

This would be my first go at it, but I think you could just report what you rolled, what you rerolled. Then what you fielded or purchased. If you want to go on the attack, you'd specify who will attack and wait for the defender to specify blockers.

You might have to go back and forth a time or two on combats, due to special character abilities, or actions played, or global effects.

Trust. Or, rather, lack thereof.

If I can get enough dice, I could totally see rocking a game using google handouts or skype.

The BGG dice roller makes this possible without trust issues. I've played enjoyable PbF games of Reiner Knizia's Decathlon and To Court the King over the years.

I'm looking at writing up a cheatsheet of custom dice templates for the MDM dice . . .

[Edit. Actually, a custom die template is not necessary, just a d6 for each die, like so:

Hulk 1d6 = (3) = 3
Wolverine 1d6 = (4) = 4
Spiderman 1d6 = (1) = 1
Sidekick 1d6 + 1d6 = (3) + (4) = 7
Sidekick 1d6 = (2) = 2
Sidekick 1d6 = (1) = 1

(Need to name each die, can't combine multiples . . .)]

Since the cards themselves show the 6 possible die faces, you could then match up the face with the rolled number? In your example Hulk 3 would the third "face" from the left or something like that?

Exactly! The fact that each card has the 6 faces in order means no need to mess with the custom templates.

A vassal module would be awesome, but I believe there is a fair amount to making one. And I fear there is great potential for licensing issues.

The only issue I see is that there is no card for sidekicks, so we would either need a sticky with an agreed upon definition, or a template for them.
