Guys - how much do you care about your dice please?

When we originally started with Legends we were not going to include them because we thought "well everyone will have 4d6 lying around".

We quickly got feedback that the game would not be complete to some people without the dice so we have added 4 basic d6 into the base game.

Now some people have been asking about special dice, so as one of the stretch goals we were going to upgrade the dice to pretty resin dice with the the Dragon's head from the soon to be finished Legends Untold Logo as the 6.

You could then roll double or even triple dragons so to speak.

However for the same cost we could probably increase the size of the game by 30% i.e. give you 30% more cards for the Environment.

So if you could have one or the other would you rather have the upgraded dragon dice or a game that is 30% bigger?

Kev

Bigger game for sure. People do like dice but everybody's already got 'em.

Bigger game. Even if I did not have extra dice lying around, I would find some on my own if I knew I was getting 30% more game. It is easy to pick up some dice, but not easy to create 30% more custom content (especially to make it match the actual product).

Definitely a bigger game. Custom dice are a nice touch, but not at the expense of more variety in the box.

Can't walk down to the local game shop and pickup 30% more content so... skip the dice and add to the game!

I definitely would have more game content (but hopefully it still will all fit in a relatively small box and have a quick play time and set up as that is a large part of the appeal for me) over fancy dice. All gamers should have 4 D 6 lying around someplace, but I do agree that having basic D 6 included makes sense as I feel that all games should have the necessary components to play out of the box. Perhaps the upgraded dice could be a later goal after content or an add on?

Looking forward to this!

Michael

As John T said, a bigger game, but dragon dice as a paid addon! I don't have dice other than what came with other games (quite often themed themselves). Obviously if even by just adding the dice as an addon means less game, then lose the dice completely!

Not including dice would be a big mistake IMO. I appreciate extra content, but you can't expect your customers to complete your game. Of course everyone on this forum will have 4d6 lying around, but we account for a very small percentage of your customer base. I'd venture to say that many of your customers won't know what a d6 even is.

Most people would be pretty upset to open their new game and discover that they're supposed to supply a critical component themselves.

I agree with this for BASIC dice, but agree that fancy deluxe dice should not come before more game content. It also depends on whether or not this is going to be marketed beyond retail to the general public or if it is going to be a kickstarter only niche game. If the later is true most people who would be kickstarting this would definitely have their own dice or know how to come up with them.
