Subject: NEED HELP: Cards or dice for boss attack rss

Your Tags: Add tags
Popular Tags: [View All]
Hey guys!

What would you prefer, a mechanic in which you draw a card from a deck and it tells you what kind of damage the boss does to you or your group or dice rolling, in which the rolled number corresponds to a certain action on the boss card?

I could save up to 50 cards by putting an action list on the boss cards, but on the other side.. it might be easier to just draw a card.

So, input?

Much appreciated!

I prefer a dice roll...but it really depends on the type of game. If you want a lot of interaction, go for dice.

I am a BIG fan of dice. You can make requests of the Gods, make funny comments, use facial gestures - all in an effort to influence your or your opponents die rolls. It brings you into the game more than the random draw of a card. Some of my best stories are when I had amazing streaks of die rolls OR when I my opponent did.... Never had any "card drawing fool" stories....

Why not do both. Draw a card and do a dice orgy depending on what the card says?

Dice is the easiest way but much depends on the whole game mechanics. Do you already use dice for other actions or will be the only action that will need the use of dice. To be clear: if you already use dice in the game go for dice also in this case, if this action is the only one that will force dice roll than maybe you can choose another way .
