I assume that is how loads of RPGers have a tendency to contemplate issues although? Someday just lately I used to be attempting to ask about an RPG somebody was speaking about and all they’d inform me was what sort of cube it used, as if that defined the whole lot.
I agree. My preferences are much less to do with which cube are used (although I discover the d8 to be pleasing to roll, no concept why) and extra to do with how these rolls are utilized by the sport. What do the numbers imply? Are they good or dangerous? How? Why? Do the principles give a binary final result (most of D&D), or shades of success and fail (eg: Dominion Guidelines or PBTA video games)?
There additionally wasn’t an possibility for “rolling nice enormous handfuls of cube”. I at all times discover that enjoyable!
