Hi guys,

Today the card "Pretending you care" equip item appeared in our game.
The text specify that during the player turn you can increase the number of each action dice by 2.

Does that really mean that basically the minimum roll you can have for your action dice is 3?
I felt it quite overpowered.. I thought after a while this would be meaning only related to rolls not connected to the initial roll (searching at the bandits location for example)

What are your thoughts?

That is what it means. It is a very good card, but only if you take survivors that are min-maxers. If you have a survivor that has attack/search of 2/2 or something, it's pretty insignificant.

It's great for niche ability characters like Kumar who have pretty awful stats in general but provide great support abilities. Personally, I tend NOT to go for min-maxed characters because I know my dice will eventually screw me over.

I don't find it overpowered because the number of dice you have is still limited by survivors you control and it does nothing to prevent exposure die rolls.

Very handy card though.
