Default Practical Application of the new hex dice

Got my Kickstarter for the Fun Generator. Got the hex dice.

Technically, I was sold on the d6 fantasy trippy numerals. They look great!

The other hex dice, however, other than a cool look to generate 1-6, I cannot seem to use for a specialized purpose. I was hoping to use them as a scatter or facing die. Something to use the hex pattern.

Any ideas on how to use them in TFT? (other than the basic roll?)

Call "black" to hit and "white" for damage.

Interesting. The better you roll, the higher the damage.

Of course, criticals are off the charts at that point. Hokey smoke! :)

I guess you'd have to say "left one is damage" if less than 3 dice are needed for weapon damage.

Highly unstable Molotails. If you miss, they hit 1-6 hexes.

Now THAT is a good idea!

Or random terrain placement!

Hm, missed the hex dice in the KS. Hopefully they'll be an addon later.

(But not packaged as two sets of three, but two pair? Heresy!)
