Some skills affect "any or all" of a certain kind of dice, for example, Consistency says "change any or all of your dice to 4's". What I'm wondering is what the "any" in this means:

#1: "any" means "any single". It seems overpowered to me that I should be able to choose to change any of my non-5s or 6s to 4s, so it seems more fair to the game this way.

OR

#2: "any" means "any number of". This could be what it means, but seems strong.

example:
I rolled two threes and a six. Could I choose to make that two fours and a six? Or would I have to do 3 fours?

Any thoughts?

In this case, "any or all" means "any number including zero or all."

I interpret it to mean "whichever dice you want". I think they'd have to have been clearer if they wanted to be more restrictive. It is very powerful, but I don't think it's OP. First, lots of spaces require a 5 or 6, so this doesn't help unless you have another power. Also, all the things that say "throw out any 1's or 3's" (or 2's, whatever), still take effect before you have the chance to use this ability. So, it's really nice (and it can save your butt), but it's not too much.

Any or all means any number from 0 up to all, chosen as you like.
