71 5/10/2019 10:19:00 AM Turn 1 German Message "put some dead rolls first"

I do that only for single rolls now. My experience in the past with ACTS was that a request for a single roll too often produced a 1. True or not, requesting multiple rolls makes me feel better.

For assault/bombardment DRs I used to request 6 dice, then ignore the first and last rolls. Over the long term the results didn't seem any different than a request for 4 dice, so I stopped doing that. I'm convinced that the dice hate me no matter what system I try.
