    Almost - you got quad skulls with the reroll on first block of first half. I got double skulls on first block of second half and Morg lonered the reroll, so he went down. Then I got quad skulls with a Ulfwerener later on in the second half.

    Yeah, I would agree. I should have just held off and used him later on.

    I have read your post twice Squirrel, and I don't understand it. Even if I put my head on one side and squint. That said, you sound confident and that has cowed me. So I apologise unreservedly. Unless you were agreeing with me, in which case yes I agree.

    He's saying you've got to reverse the polarity

    I had that with my fanatic against a $%ing halfing the other day. Instant knockout.

    Yeah, exact... WAIT NO!! Maybe I did get something wrong.

    The chances for 4x skull are 1/6 x 1/6 x 1/6 x 1/6, right? The chances for 3x skull and 3x skull OR 3x BD should be 1/6 x 1/6 x 1/6 x 1/3 (skull OR BD which determines which sides have to be rolled for the last two rolls) x 1/6 x 1/6. Did I miss something?

    I think the point is that since either skulls or both down would have caused the turnover, you should be comparing chance of turnover

    Which is (1/3 x 1/3 x 1/3) x (1/3 x 1/3 x 1/3) = 1/729 for the Kroxiroar
    and (1/6 x 1/6) x (1/6 x 1/6) = 1/1296 for the quad skull

    So in essence you're more likely to get turned oved by a 3-dicing big guy than a 2-dicing regular guy. And that's not even factoring in the loner reroll which would swing it even further to that dino-man.

    Incidentally I've been facing Morg the last few games and he has rolled like five double skulls and generally lonered the reroll. Dude is turnover catnip.

    I am choosing to tempt Nuffle and say "not for me, he isn't. Morg is awesomes and the last time I chose him he broke Lowkey's Krox's arm on the very first roll of the game, because he thought it would be funny. It was."

    The God thing, though, I could get on board with.

    Your calculation assumes that the regular guy has block though, yes?

    Quite so. Quite so.

    I would pay actual money for a big guy of mine to roll a doubles when they level up, the doubles-avoiding bastards.

    The Storm Boyz had a block troll (called, aptly enough, Einstein). I miss the big lug now they've retired.
    I really need two successive doubles for my rat ogre - a block claw rat ogre would be the Best Thing.

    I have a block claw beast of nurgle? He's a bit slower and tentaclier than a rat ogre mind.
