There's a token for Reroll, even though it seems to be pre-printed on all the ability coasters. So I am wondering-- if I draw ability discs at random and one of them is Reroll, are there just two copies of the Reroll ability available at once? (The pre-printed one for white, and the loose token for another color.)

If not, what is that token for?

(I guess I am also curious how important that pre-printed Reroll is. Can you play with Reroll attached to a higher-value bean color? Can you play with two die-manipulation abilities available but neither of them being Reroll?)

The beauty of the modular system in VivaJava Dice is that you can do absolutely anything you want to do.

Thanks! But I'm also assuming the beauty of playtesting is that someone knows better than me which of these variants would be broken.

Well, that's why we provide the recommended type of ability disk on the Wild Coaster, so players know what a good balanced mix can be. We have seen some crazy mixes over the years and I've never found one to be broken. It just really depends on how wild you want your Wild Coaster.

If you do want to play with two Re-Rolls, that's fine. If you don't want to use a Re-Roll then substitute another die manipulation disk - but it's preprinted because it's the most useful for almost any situation.

Yep, and if you look real closely, the House Coaster already breaks the rules of the WILD Coaster. Having 4 rerolls is fun. It's kinda pointless to go after in-game, but if you use the Intern Coaster you can test it out.
