No.

Sure they do, they're just not common. They look like regular d6es, except with two sides each for numbers 1, 2, and 3.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

Oh man, that is totally cheating. I just about broke my brain trying to imagine a 3-sided geometric object this morning.

Idea time:

Ablative Armor: +1AP per Structure level. Explosive plates absord and disperse incoming shots, providing a chance that the creation may live a few seconds longer. This allows a creation to re-roll an armor roll once per game.

I really like that idea. I'd love to see a tank covered in removable plates like that. At some point I also want to use slat armor to protect my armored vehicles from RPG fire.

Course, there is one problem with my rule idea: it interferes with the idea of frequent mass destruction. So it may be un BrikWarsy. :) Hide mechs behind cover would be an easier (and cowardlyer) way to go around their destructability. :P

You have forgotten, any thing the mech hides behind can also be destroyed.

A lozenge (◊) is a form of rhombus. The definition of lozenge is not strictly fixed, and it is sometimes used simply as a synonym (from the French losange) for rhombus. Most often, though, lozenge refers to a thin rhombus — a rhombus with acute angles of 45°. The lozenge shape is often used in parquetry and as decoration on ceramics, silverware, and textiles.
