Everyone has had a hint of devils luck when playing dice games, those games where every time the dice leave your hand fives and sixes face up. No matter how good a strategy or how great an army list you have created in the end all dice games will still be decided by a single roll of a die. Granted you can always blame the dice for bad tactics but it does not substitute for a poor played game but it will sure make you feel better when you get stomped.
That is the great thing about board games or table top games is that ounce of randomization that dice bring to a game, whether your game is Risk, Warhammer or Warmachine the thrill of the game comes from the rattle of dice in your hand and the unpredictability of the dice rolling across the table. this has been a past time of civilization for centuries, the first dice were dated before recorded history and the oldest dice in history are 5000 years old. Used by all classes of civilization, from knights and ladies to chronic gamblers and criminals. It doesn’t mater what social class you come from dicing has always been a source of entertainment.
So just remember when things look good and everything is going your way sixes and fives can become ones and two’s in a roll of a dice, some time you just aren’t meant to win but you can always blame it on the dice.
