I like dice chucking, like Elder Sign or Planet Apocalypse … but those empty die faces. I tried again, got my 3 dice for 1 round, failed to achieve anything, next 2 rounds escalted 2 times +1, so I lost my 3rd die again. Could not talk him down, stuck on 2 dices, way off the threshold to get a 3rd one.
My very first game went way better, rolled almost constantly 1 or 2 successes every time. Freed all hostages minus one, could not get the last one and the timer ran out. But since then (total outlier with so many successes) I just can’t roll anymore…
Before I got the game, I thought the cards would help with the dice. But to activate, you also need success. The reroll-card is OK, but you can reroll 1 die, and then it is only a chance of 1:3 to roll a success, pretty bad odds.
Don’t know what to make of it, there must be a way to play “smart” … but you need some good rolls.
I missed a rule that you can discard a card for 1 CP … not sure if it makes a difference, it could help. I wish they had this rule on the back of the card. I think in Final Girl, they have it, so that’s when I played HN and the back of the card missed that rule, I did not check the rulebook.
