It certainly depends of the “cultural” wargaming background of the military personnel involved, i.e. what they understand and are willing to do with it.

My own military experience is from a quite long time ago ๐Ÿ˜‰ and French army personnel (and general public) hadn’t heard much about wargames then.

A friend of mine who served as Reserve officer in a Train (transport) unit introduced his colonel to 2d10 to calculate % chance of a convoy passing safely through enemy attacks. The colonel was a bit surprised at first, then he thought it was funny; and my friend was happy enough, on the next day, to see the faces of professional officers of the regiment looking with surprise and awe as the colonel rolled these (then almost unknown in France) dice and said : “Um, sorry, this convoy has been attacked. What will you decide to do now ?”
