  1. Hello there! As a new player to this game, this guide was really helpful. To be fair, I read all the articles before actually played a single game, I just bought a core set and a few ships. So, I wasnt aware the fact, that there is quite a huge difference in the dices apart from the range (what was quite obvious from the begining). So, as a new player, I thought red>blue>black, but I couldnt be more wrong(realised this after reading a couple of articles). So I just had a look on the dices now, did some maths to see wich dice is the best for different tasks. But, could you please do such an article to the page? I think it would be a nice addition. Cheers!

    1. Not a bad idea. I've been playing so long that I haven't even thought of dice outside the context of the ships and upgrades. I think I will write that dice focused topic pretty soon.
