Dumb luck awards Thu, 24 February 2011 23:20
Congratulations to the 2 players that have achieved one of the new "Dumb" luck awards.

4x Grenades
4x Stars
4x Flags

Wow, these are ones not to go after, just wait with great patience and hope they happen.

We'll be seeing Finest Hour and Medic played a lot in the following games. Still it will be a small consolation if you roll Flags or Grenades for Medic.

Hm ... will these achievements also be awarded if you roll 4 dice of 6 in finest hour, or only if you roll 4 of 4?

Well, the badge is _almost_ a consolation prize...

(4 flags - sheesh!)

The "Stiff Upper Lip" award is indeed a consolation prize.

To get it a unit has to be reduced to one figure and then kill the attacker with the "stiff upper lip" die roll.

This award represents a lucky defender against an unlucky attacker. I've got it and I've given it away too. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Personally, I was delighted with my 'star wars' award, I was in the middle of one of those bad luck streaks that I know we all get....right ? Rolling the 4 x stars is proof im not paranoid, and that I am indeed unlucky.... for now. I wear it with pride Rolling Eyes

Four flags on a Finest Hour armor close assault with the defender 4 hexes from his own board edge and no other enemy units within overrun range.

Let's just say I'm glad I got something for it. Confused

ok - 2 out of the 4 dumb luck awards...

It looks like the odds of rolling 4 stars or 4 pineapples or 4 flags (with 4 dice) are 1 in 1,296...

Absolutely correct! Cool

1/(6*6*6*6)

That's still easier than winning the Lottery. Razz
