When you re-roll an attack die, you can change it to a different color. Same for defense.

Basically whenever you get to reroll any dice, you can change the color of that die to one of the same type. "Same type" means offense or defense (i.e. you cannot change your Red attack die to be a Black defense die).

Ahhhh thanks to both of you. The word "type" was throwing me off. I thought it was saying I could reroll, say, a yellow with a yellow which made no sense to me. But seeing as how type means attack or defense it makes a lot more sense. Seems like that should be obvious though right? Who would roll a defense die for an attack?

The "dice type" has been defined in the rulesheet that comes with Lando, and in the Bespin Gambit rulebook.

Just for reference too, there's a section added into the Bespin rulebook about Dice Types:

Quote:
DICE TYPES
Some abilities refer to a die's type. A die's type is either
"attack" or "defense."
• Blue, Red, Green, and Yellow dice are attack dice.
• Black and White dice are defense dice.


I'm still hoping they'll make a new defense die, like a brown die or something that's halfway between the White and Black die.

Gotcha. I don't own bespin gambit yet and was just looking at deployment cards for minis. Guess i got ahead of myself. Also, a new defense die would be quite cool.

Shouldn't that be a gray die?
