Part of the Fun Police's job is to make sure people have fun in the RIGHT ways.

What would be more fun in Brikwars; someone spending all their CP on a gigantic bomb to go off in the middle of the map killing everything instantly, or an actual battle with minifigs and creations actually fighting eachother with bloodshed and it being more of an actual game?

While I addressed this question in one of the sidebars, let me ask you THIS: Would it be more fun to play a very short game with a guy who brought on the game-ending apocalypse in the first turn, or to get stuck in a full drawn-out game sitting across from the kind of player who wants to bring on a game-ending apocalypse in the first turn but isn't allowed to?

As long as he ends it quick, you have plenty of time to start a new game with someone who's actually there to play. Efficient!

All true, but you missed the entire point of the exercise. You disrupted us in mid bullshit. That is what burst our bubble. :lol:

Nooooo, it's a thousand sided die. Didn't you listen? The minimum (on mine) happens to be zero. The maximum (on mine) happens to be 999.

Not quite. I keep it handy in the event that I have to leave a game; it pretty much stays unknown about until it looks like we aren't going to see things to the end. I don't even really have a physical representation of it. It's basically a "classik" end-er of battles that can't end on their own.


It's just more interesting because sometimes, once in a great while, it fails. Especially with the skill roll.

Not necessarily.

Many gamers who have need of a hundred sided die use a normal ten-sided die, and another one like it, except it might say 00, 10, 20, etc. the normal one tells you the ones place, and the not so normal one tells you the tens place.

For instance, if the tens-die says 20 and the ones-die said 6, that would be 26.

For my thousand sided die, I simply use an extra tens-die of a different color to represent the hundreds place.

Yes, I am aware of the magic values of dice and the ways of rolling high values. *sigh* :? It is possible that the thousand D10's were a joke bordering on sarcasm. Sorry, you missed it but do not panic for another sarcasm is sure to be arriving soon. :roll:

1000 10 sided dies with a critical failure is like Einstein dividing something by zero
- I refuse to be stopped by something as irrelevant as logic, the laws of physics, or common sense -

if 20 chickens can fit in a brick, how many pingpongballs does a crocodile have to eat so it can swim faster than a washing machine?

Ok, ok, perhaps Legal is too strong a word. Perhaps more deniable and harder to prove (depending on the intelligence of the target) is what I meant.

@ Coximind... Derailed?
