Proposal: Bigger Basic Boxes

In the rule “Energy and Cycles”, replace “A Worker can spend one of their own Energy to roll a DICE10; they then gain a Box with the rolled number.” with “A Worker can spend 1 of their own Energy to roll a DICE6 and add 4, then gain a Box with that number.”

shrinking the random variation + adding a floor so that rolling a 1 isnt so crushing!

against Rolling a 1 might be bad for a Clink machine, but I assume that we’ll have more machines in future, for which lower-numbered boxes might be more useful. I think that if the randomness in Cog income is a problem, it’d be better to fix it either with basic income, or by changing the definition of a Clink machine to provide a certain baseline. (However, Cogs don’t do anything yet, so variation in Cog income may well not be a problem in practice; I can easily imagine a second sort of machine that generates some alternative resource from low-numbered boxes.)
