Random is just that.

Random. And just because one person rolled one way and another rolled another doesn't mean the die is weighted. It is a good indication that your perception of it is, however.


The Dominion boxes have the mining claim.
There are a lot of claims around and a lot of evidence that supports the theory that the random number generator is not working "truly randomly".

One of the devs commented on the need to go through the number generator's code and ensure it is outputting properly. Chains of identical items shouldn't be common and yet they are.

Hell I saw a guy open 3 wells class ships 3 boxes in a row. If the number generator is operating properly what are the odds of that?
