Thank you all for your answers and time.
I do have a dice tower and think I'll give it another try.
It's just the way the dice roll I guess.
There is no special way to roll, to get more hits.
As for the question being odd. Just thought I'd try to pick your brains for some help and I got it.
You are a great bunch of players and this is a great community.
Truly the best war game I have ever played.
Thank you all. Very Happy

A short story on that.

A while back a played a wargame and one of the important segments of a turn was the air war. Usually planes (air points in the game) were matched up 1 to 1 and a one was needed to eliminate an enemy plane. Often 50 or more of these rolls were needed to resolve air combat for a turn. To save time, we would roll 6 dice at a time and the odds were at least one one would be rolled. Well my opponent seemed to have a knack for rolling more than his fair share of ones and I.... Rolling Eyes

I changed dice several times, I tried rolling more or less dice at a time, I tried rolling on the table, in a box, in a dice tower and nothing seemed to alter the fact he rolled more ones than I. So I went on to the next phase of the game turn knowing these was no solution to the air war losses, I was just a lousy pilot Laughing

This announcement has raised some "sceptic" reactions...
I can understand this.

Accordingly, note that DOW recently uploaded the advanced strategic chapter XIV: The Card Game.

You can download it on the book's page on Memoir '44 website

Have a look.
