I ventured forth today to pick up some 20 sided dice for use with Harry Pearson's Quick play Greeks vs Persians rules. Alas my local hobby store no longer carries "funny dice" (my term). I contemplated dragging my tail around town in my quest but a friend had suggested halving the factors and using 10 sided dice, if the majority of factors were even numbers. I have just reviewed the list and only the 3 cavalry units have an odd "to hit" factor. So 1/2 ing it is! That will bump me up from 1 die to about 4 which should suffice. (Trivia: 2 of those are actual 10 siders, the rest are the old "percentile" dice - 20 sided marked 0-9 twice, a curiosity now it seems.) Once the cavalry (if the cavalry) get into it, I can use my one 20-sider for attacks against them.
Hopefully the game will be played on Friday. Meanwhile, painting of extra Persian infantry continues a pace with a 50/50 chance that they some at least will be ready to serve by then.
