Maybe it's just me, but I actually despise the colored dice included with every version since AA50. I personally prefer the black die w/white pips from the earlier versions of A&A. This, of course, gives me all the more reason to purchase Combat Dice from Field Marshal Games.

I have played with those dice. I'm not sure if the sets that I was playing with were legal. My opponent might have had really poor luck, but at the same time my dice were hot.

I think they need a statistical test done on them. Eventually cheap dice are going to get too cheap.

I agree! Useless... They're to big, and ugly, and they have way to sharp edges. I use the small ones from "Tide of Iron" that are just perfect. Kind of funny that the "Tide of Iron" dice are actually on the picture on the back of the game...

Hiho,

I can only warn to buy from fieldmarshal-games. I ordered & paid a complete set of dices 3 weeks ago, but i did not get any repsonse even after asking for it.

Very sad. I hope there are on holidays or so ...

Using the black/orange dice hurt my eyes, so I used other dice that the game owner brought from a pervious A&A game. Personally, I like Black/Red or Black/White dice, and see no reason to get into strange colors. After a long gaming session, I want to be able to read the dice clearly, and these do not let me do that.
