Dice instead of cards

I purchased the game several months ago but being a traditional gamer I am having trouble getting players to try to give a game using cards a chance (and am having trouble wrapping my own mind around the card mechanics).  I was wondering if there has been any alternative DICE instead of cards mechanics that has been used? Maybe dice pools with different kinds of dice or something. (Heroes start with 4 siders while the narrator starts with 8's or something).

Any ideas?

If anyone has any ideas on how to do WGP... with dice, please post and help out sourflower. I specifically chose to use cards because I couldn't figure out how to get the effects I wanted with dice. Some of my thoughts on cards, and particularly on the role of choice in using them can be found in this Daedelus interview from before the game was released.[/b]
