Items: With 3 dice, each rolling max 1 tool, how can you gain 12 tools for 48 items points in a turn?

Special Find: A RWB tool bonus, you find 1 items of your choice (or 2 stars), but must still pay its cost. How is this different than a normal turn? I must be missing something.

I play at EPGS on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month and if you live in Eastern PA, Western NJ or Northern DE ... you should too!

You should be rolling 6 dice; and you get 48 points with 6 tools (not 12) so that is how you reach 48.

The RWB bonus is a USED item. You still pay for it but it lets you get something you already used. Normally once you use an item it's out of play.

I'm confused, you mentioned having only 3 dice and needing 12 tools for 48 item points. You actually have 6 dice and it only takes 6 dice (as tools) to gain 48 item points.

That said, if you are asking if you can pull that off with 3 dice, then the answer is yes as well but it requires tools on all 3 dice, an item that adds a tool, a sector that adds a tool, and another bonus of some sort that provides a tool (I think there are some add dice to your roll specialists or awards).

Was that your tool question?

FWIW, it's pretty common for me to pull off a 48 tool turn in a game, mainly due to planning it around bonuses, sectors, and usually having a lieutenant to help out.

---

Regarding your special find question, that's in addition to what you roll that turn. It can be combined with what you roll and result in multiple RWB's, lots of stars, and all kinds of goodness. It really is a "special find" and powerful.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the replies! Being a newb, I was fixated on the RWB pic of 3 dice, so was emtirely not associating that to the actual 6 dice total you roll each turn.

And now I see the USED item reference.


Again, thanks!
