I know it's not likely, but what if you spend 10 dice for a group test and still don't hit the required threshold? Or what if you spend all 12 dice?

That’s highly unlikely to happen. But when attempting a group test you should only use higher dice. I never use a 1-3 unless that’s all I need to pass it.

Why only 12 dice? There’s at least 25 that you can use.

How do you get 25? There are only 5 of each color dice, and most group tasks can only be done with a specific color, plus purple, since it's wild. 5 + 5 = 10.

Oh, and also, before rolling a die, you must choose what you're rolling it for. So if you decide to roll a die towards the group task, you can't use it for something else. I suppose if you roll a 1, you can decide to discard it instead, though, to avoid removing it from the pool.

Sorry. Misremembered. Only 5 of each color. So the color for the test and 5 wild dice for 10 that can be used.

I suppose if cant possibly get to the target number because foolishly kept low rolls, you can simply clear them all out next time the dice go back into the bag.

My mistake about the 25, I was half asleep when I wrote that response. Don’t forget that you have some abilities that let you reroll dice also.
