Hi,

The description says the box comes with 12 dice, is the player having a chance to use them all in one roll?

Thx

Theoretically it is possible, but will never really happen.

Thx for the reply...

Just curious, usually on average how many dice were rolled once?

The number of dice increases as the game progresses, as you gain dice from the cards you've collected. Some of these extra dice are rolled, while others are aquired as set numbers, but not actually rolled.

They are acquired as set numbers, but they are likely to get rerolled on most turns.

The game can't end until someone has 7 dice. It's not unusual for someone to have 8-10 on their final turn. All 12 is a rarity.

Without duplicating or Charlatans, I make 13 the most possible (basic 3, Farmer, General, 123456, Queen). Highest I've seen in real life is 10, although I believe I once saw 11 on BSW.

on my first game ever I didn't claim the king and queen first, but in the final roll off i rolled first and nailed ten 6s. i won by default since nobody else could even roll ten die.
I would say on average at least one player would have 10 die potential. in theory it could be unlimited with charlatans. i clarified this with the game designer and he said they include 12 since the rolling would have to be impossibly horrendous to require more than that to win.
