I am currently in the process of prototyping a game that revolves around triangles. I want my players to roll 3d4 dice to move, but am worried about the effects it might have vs. a traditional 2d6 setup.
The reasons I want to use d4s are:
- They are triangular prisms.
- I can use three of them and still only have a maximum of 12 rolled at any one time.
I am worried about the rolls always being just a few numbers. For 2d6, the odds of rolling a 12 (or the lowest #) are 1 in 36. For 3d4, the odds are 1 in 64, making my rolls less diverse. I seem to roll 7, 8 or 9 every time I roll 3d4.
I need to know if this would pose any problem to the movement factor in my game (for now, assume it has 40 squares).
