Would it be practical to replace those discs with d6?

Including on the Lizardfolk and Orc boards? Sounds like a lot of dice would be needed...

I don’t think there would be that many. You’d need 1 dice per region, per player. So that’s 6 x 6 = 36.

You technically wouldn’t need the markers for VPs, Merefolk track or Orc boards to be dice, they could remain tokens if you don’t mind losing a bit of consistency.

That said, I’m not sure dice solves a problem that needs solving?

EDIT: Also, I've seen more than 6 tokens in a region before.

Keep in mind player discs are a limited resource, so anything you replace them with needs to match in quantity. This matters for certain races' sideboards.

Has there actually ever been any confirmation of this one way or another? I've been playing with them unlimited, because I've been unable to find an official ruling.

Sure, but why?

Because it's practical to do so.
