I hate to let every know, but the prob tables are wrong. In a dice combat where you have a binary solution of either success or failure. IE. ( you roll more successes either 5& 6 or just 6 than your opponent )then you must use the following formula for probablity of success. 2^A/2^B where A is the number of dice the Attacker rolls and B is the number of dice the defender rolls. This gives the probablity of the Attacker winning. This works for every possible outcome except where the attacker rolls nothing, which of course is 0. Please pass along so others dont make the same mistake

I have no idea what probability tables you are talking about. None are included in the game.
