I just meant that two dice lets you have a bad roll in the mix.
2 dice, for example, let's you roll: 6,6; 6,6; 6,2; 6; 6; 6; 6; 4 or
6,6; 6,6; 6,1; 6; 6; 6; 6; 4 or 6,6; 6,6; 6,4; 6; 6; 6; 6; 1 and still
reach 19.
Of course, if you are firm in your belief that you are as likely to
reach 19 points of damage with 1 die as you are with multiple dice, then
I really have no argument to counter that.
