Before rolling the die, a player may pay for as many rolls as he wants. For example, if it costs one coin to fight a Boss, the player may pay five coins to roll the die five times. If the player gets the required roll in fewer rolls than what he paid for, he does not get a refund. If the player exhausts his rolls without defeating the Boss, the next player may now pay for as many rolls as he wants, etc.

This is interesting and sounds superior to the base system. Seems like a legitimately interesting decision.

Has any one tried substituting the six sided die for an eight sided die in boss battles only. It seems that it can be quite frustrating when trying to roll a six on a normal die, especially when playing with kids, hence would give you a better chance to kill the big bosses. Obviously though, it would make it easier to beat the cheaper bosses. Any thoughts?

That would compound the problem of a runaway leader. A rich player could just get all the bosses which is a ton of points

Let's remember that a boss fight sometimes can be giving up 2 points (since five coins is ten points) for a chance at 30+ points. If you give the players too many rolls, even at a cost, it may make it too certain they will get the boss for the points that they need to invest
