p. 13 of the rules
Something like "If there is a disagreement concerning line of sight, roll a 20 sided die and the player with the higher number is correct."
This is not verbatim. devil

I think the "throw a die/coin to resolve rules disagreements" predates GW by some margin.

Nope, but they're pretty dang good at making you think they're the only ones in town who have one.

They'll sell you one you can paint, but it won't be cheap.

No matter who invented random resolution of rules conflicts, it was still cool of the HS design team to add it! And btw, line of sight issues are just about the only thing that that can cause that kind of trouble in Heroscape,(as opposed to regular tabletop games) in my oppinion one of the things that makes this game beautiful!
