I like the fact that the pendant is a black heart. Appropriate!

How many dice do we need to hope to miss with?

Dear Lucky Duck,

Firstly: challenge accepted! Cool

Secondly, what would constitute a worse performance, I myself would go for more turns at 0% or more dice at 0%.

By the way you mentioned how many dice your opponent threw, but not how many you threw.

Topping either one would be a feat of unluck in itself. Twisted Evil

...But first, a challenge! If ANYONE out there has ever had a worse game, I will award that player with a special, one of a kind "Unlucky Duck" medal. For now, I claim it as my own.

The scenario was "Battle of Termoli" which is in SFTF, and I was playing as the Allies. In 8 turns, I rolled 0%, and lost the battle 0-6. That's right, 8 turns, no hits, while my opponent rolled 49 times and scored 22 times. The odds of this occurring are so astronomically improbable that I can't come up with enough 0's after the decimal. Somewhere, a group of Chimpanzees are attempting to type the collected works of Shakespeare,and they have better odds of succeeding than rolling 0% in 8 turns.

In all fairness, the game was 9 turns between the two players, so you had only 4 turns ... you only rolled 11 dice, most or all of them were against tanks ... and on the last turn you moved an artillery with a Recon-1 instead of playing TFH.

The odds of missing a tank with 11 shots are only about 1 in 86. Pathetic, but not even on the Richter scale, compared to some of the other reports on this thread.

However, I do like the German tank on turn 3 moving through the mountain and directly to level ground. (Someone should tell the author of that scenario that mountains aren't supported yet.)

We're talking about 11 dice against armor?

One more engagement which - apparently, could have, should have been taken ( TFH ) and we'd be talking about a 20% hit rate... Hardly ~ Special Medal ~ worthy IMO...

This thread is starting to sound a little sappy, like the old Monty Python skit where each man BRAGGED about how hard life was and how his misery was greater than his companions:

What, Lucky duck, you are claiming this medal for only 11 dices missed !!

Please have a look on this link :

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/fr/battle/?id=31 823332#replay:turn=3

That's what I call a total missed throw : 16 dices against tank without any shot !! I claim your medal !! Laughing Very Happy

The more funny is that this game was totaly calamitous for both side. Lot missed dices during all the game !

Seems a waste to use such a large box for just one kid. Or was the box full and is this just the leftover kid? Very Happy

You are certainly very close from the truth. In the box is the kid I stayed - who like a lot games (strategy games for sure !) - even if I don't look like anymore when I'm looking myself in a mirror Laughing

The cards aren't in the box, they are being used for practice shooting. Very Happy

Re:Worst dice Sun, 24 March 2013 21:31
Hmmm, good points. I was thinking that the worst luck comes from a combination of bad dice AND bad cards. That's why I considered losing a six medal battle on turn 9 vs. the AI with a 0% hit rate the worst luck ever. I hadn't considered that I only rolled 11 times. Missing for 11 straight rolls is certainly within the realm of reasonable - reasonably unlucky that is - but not unheard of.

Having recently enjoyed a run of the other kind of luck - the good kind - and been promoted to Brigadier in the process - I feel there are many players out there more deserving of the 'Heart of Darkness' medal than yours truly. Therefore, I pass it on to Dietrich Von Kliest - if for no other reason than he may find a way to pretty it up a bit and add it to his rack of other medals and ribbons. That is something I'd like to see.

Signed, Your once again,
Lucky Duck

May I suggest this design?
It's based on the German medal for injuries (Verwundetenabzeichen).
The black heart is pierced by 2 swords and entangled in golden barbed wire. For a symbol of bad luck this can count I suppose.

And the ribbon that comes with it:
