Reducing standard deviation in games involving single die rolls

My recently-published design Hastings 1066, which well-known game reviewer Marco Arnaudo calls a “lunchtime wargame”, and which I call a successor to old-time microgames, reflects the amount of chance that occurs in a real battle: a lot. As with any historical battle game, simulating the chaos and chances of war is more or less the opposite of what gamers want as they explore generalship.

New Board Game Pieces - Western Pistols

The Game Crafter - Board Game Pieces - Western Pistols

We added Western Pistols to our Board Game Pieces Shop! These are fine quality scale miniature Western Pistols that come in a set of 2. They measure .8415" x .122" x .8385" (H x W x L) and come in the original bag from the manufacturer. These pieces have a lot of detail and would be great for games with a western theme. We also have a rifle if that is a better fit for your game.

Box art file I sent to my manufacturer

This is obviously smaller than the real thing, because of the size limit here, but this recently came up, so I thought I'd show what a "box" looks like to a manufacturer.

Additionally I wanted to note that each of my cards is about a 100mb PDF file, when saved with its layers (about 5mb saved as a TIFF). Files are not small! And this is also why MS Word is not the right file format.
