Dice Legacy is primarily a game about buildings and dice, but there are a handful of other mechanics that are important for any fledgling Ruler to understand. One of these is the Council, which pops up occasionally to offer you a choice of Policies. In this guide, we’ll take a look at how the Council works, and provide a list of all the possible Policy choices.
By default, The Council meets at the end of every season and provides you with a choice of three random Policies. The three Policies presented are always associated with one of the Dice types that you currently control: if you only control Peasants, you will only see Peasant policies, and so on. There are two Scenarios that change how the Council functions:
- The Red Tape scenario causes The Council to meet only once per year
- The Six Faces scenario causes The Council to not consider controlled dice when proposing new policies
Once you choose a policy, in addition to whatever effect the new policy gives, two things will happen:
- The hapiness of the Dice class whose policy was chosen will increase
- The happiness of any Dice class whose policy was not chosen will decrease
Because of this, in addition to deciding which policy would best complement your current strategy/game state, you also need to consider the current happiness of each Dice class that has a proposed policy. It’s a good idea to have a plan in place to deal with the potential consequences before you ignore the policy of a Dice class that is already unhappy.
If you don’t want to upset anyone, you can always use the Skip button to not pick any policy. If none of the policies are particularly strong, this can be a good strategy if you are having trouble keeping your Dice happy.
If you can’t remember what policies you’ve chosen, you can view them at any time by pressing [C] or hitting the button at the top of the UI to open the Council menu. Then you can click Active Policies to view all current active policies. You can also click the Active Policies button while the Council is in session.
Every Dice class has 12 possible policies that can show up when The Council meets (assuming it hasn’t already been chosen). Rarer policies are marked with a red seal in-game, as well as on this list.
