Personal House Rules

Nick speaking,

I have previously talked about house rules, but what about personal house rules? A personal house rule is something that you always do that you feel is the way to do it, and sometimes you will do this automatically without even thinking about it, as I discovered the other day...

I was in the middle of a game with one of my main gaming buddies, and we had a mutual gaming buddy with us who was watching. I had a handful of dice and rolled them to wound, there was allot of dice and a couple of dice landed on top of some other dice. I picked the top dice off and re-rolled them. The guy watching said "hold on, they were misses, you can't re-roll those?" I turned to my opponent who said "That's OK, he always re-rolls those dice!" 



This event later turned into a conversation between us, and yes it seems I do have a personal house rule that I didn't even realise I had. Like my buddy said, even though when he has dice on top of another, he takes them off and uses the results, he knows that I always re-roll them. As long as we always do the same thing then there are no problems. It has made me more aware of the little things that happen in games, and of course if my opponent had said "no, you can't re-roll them" there would be no argument from me, as long as he does the same.

So does anyone out there have there own personal house rule that maybe they didn't realise they had?

  1. It could be seen as suspicious to someone you haven't played with before but as long as you're consistent and re-roll the stacked dice on good rolls as well as bad ones I don't see any problem with it. An interesting situation and not something I have thought of before. In the future I'll have to watch to see if I have any of those habits.

  2. If a dice is at an angle, we usually call "cocked" and just re-roll it. If it is questionable, we place another dice on top of the dice in question. If the second stays, so does the result, if it doesn't then we re-roll it.

  3. I like that! To support the OP, I feel he is right, because if you have to touch the dice to see the result, then it should be re-rolled. Thats how I feel. Its kinda like the of the table re-roll

  4. Our gaming group is also very serious, but with it very consistend when considering cocked dice.
    Every dice that is partly or complete on a piece of terrain, reroll.
    Every dice that is partly or complete on a models base, reroll.
    Every dice that is on the floor or ontop of another dice, reroll.
    Some new player find this strange but this is how we're rollin and it is always the same, so no one can complain or even argue: "It is slightly on the base, but relatively flat lying it does count. NO!"

  5. I think that is the main thing really, consistancy. As long as it's always the the same, who can argue!
