No dice games

Postby Fruitcake on Tue Jan 08, 2008 11:34 am

I have often played without dice. The simple rule is, to attack, you must have at least 1 more than the defence to win (obviously).

Now this seems very simple on the surface, but does make for very strategic games, however, playing with escalating cards never really works, flat or no cards is best.

The main advantage being it takes all random result from the dice out of the equation.

No doubt someone has suggested this before, but I rarely read the forum, so apologies if I am thrashing a dead topic. Further apologies if I have posted this in the wrong place.

Good luck to you all.

And if you have the requisite more than one more pieces, how many do you lose by attacking?

No randomness, no fun. I'd rather play Chess then.

I think you are looking for a Diplomacy website. I don't think that would work for this one. :(

You both lose the same amount. So if 5 attack 3, 1 moves in, as 3 are lost by both parties. What this means is you really have to think about every position on the board.

In fact, all the games I have played have never really laster much longer than a no cards game.

I would also put it forward, as so very many seem to have a problem with the 'random' dice here, so get rid of the dice for those that want.

Good idea Fruitcake

Amen to that.

Thanks for the support Audax. Seriously, it is a good game for those that find the way the dice roll here a little odd. I must admit to that myself QED I put this idea forward.

Moved over to suggestions forum. It seems like I've heard of this one before but can't find the thread.

The only real big problem I see with this is the attacking and moving first advantage would be pretty big.

The only games where I feel like this works is where everyone moves at the same time after secretly making up moves, which is probably too much new coding to consider and would change the nature of the game quite a bit with no dice on.

But would it (taking classic as an example) - yes you'd get a 6 to start with - but you lose 3 - and leave a 2 and a 1 somewhere - that would be easy to conquer for player 2...

That still is quite imbalanced. The only reason it works in Diplomacy is you only have 1 army per territory and there are all these weird movement rules.

You know, instead of playing dice, we should do rock paper scissors agianst the defender. That'd make things at least fair and not so random...
