    Abstract

    We introduce several deck of cards and dice models that can be used to represent stochastic outcomes in tabletop games. We analyze these using a toy game introduced as a Micro Combat game. By simulating the outcome of the game with these different models we can analyze them in terms of their salience, disparity, fairness and obfuscation. We expect this analysis to help designers choose the method that best suits their intended experience.
