How many extra dice packs are you thinking about adding once the pledge manager comes out? Seems like some of the expansions and sins come with extra dice, but not all. Although $8 for 6 dice seems a bit excessive.

So far as I can make out, the base pledge (no addons) should give 13 Sins dice and 10 Faith dice. That seems like enough to me?

I'm getting the expansions so I don't feel the need for extra dice. If I were only getting the base game I might be tempted, but even then there are some added dice from stretch goals.

Why are you asking if that seems like enough to you?

Are you 100%, and is there a way to be sure?

If you don't mind rerolling and keeping track of successes/results, then just a single fair die (or other means of fairly determining 1 of 6 possible results) is enough.

If you don't ever want to reroll, then there's an infinitesimally small possibility that you will need a practically infinite supply of dice.

Most people don't mind the odd reroll, it'll be somewhere between 1 and an infinite number.



Or, more practically, the base dice (possibly plus expansions) should do you fine unless you'll be playing with multiple FAITH players and don't want to be passing dice back and forth.

It looks like only one FAITH player ever needs to roll at a time, so you'll never need multiple FAITH players to each be rolling several dice at once.

EDIT: reroll not preroll - damn spool chucker and auto-connect!

Using a question mark invites others to share a different view. Maybe it's a cultural thing.

It depends on how many games you want to play at the same time.
Apart from the apocalypse track you can have enough missions, miniatures, dice and tokens to run multiple games at the same time.

I could understand wanting extra dice to demo the game on multiple tables at once. Just wish each story type had its own apocalypse track.
