Played a game as Rebels the other day and while checking to see if i could place a lesser unit (Corellian Corv)for a superior one (Mon Cal) which i couldn't i realised that 5 of each colour dice is the max u can roll.

We just kept rolling dice up to the number we needed. Is this a problem or do you do the same?

No we limit the components and dice as per the rules - only roll a maximum of 5 red and 5 black dice during combat and we don't produce more units of any one type than are physical available.

That limitation is a core part of the game system, too. It forces diversification (units), avoids one-sided fights (dice), and plays a huge part in the balance of the game.

I'd strongly suggest you play by the rules if you want to experience the game as designed; of course, the final call is up to you, if your opponent and yourself have more fun that way.

Don't do either of the things you describe. You are flipping the balance of a well balanced game, meaning you're ruining your own fun.

I didnt actually change the Mon Cal for the CC and never have.

But Ive been playing it wrong with the max dice all the time.

Must play it in future with the max dice rule and see if there is a huge difference.

Yeah, the "5 dice" mechanic gives the Rebellion at least a fighting chance.

The Empire starts with such a deeper bench of available ships and units, without that 5 dice limitation, they should literally steamroll the Rebellion.

Also, without the limit an Attack on the Deathstar is very easy to prevent ... just load up on enough dice to take down any fighters in the first round of fighting. With the limit a group of 6-8 Fighters is a formidable threat to the Death Star no matter their escort.
