Like Carter, I also could not resist the sirens' song that is the Chessex Pound-O-Dice. I've got my favorite sets of dice for my own gaming purposes, and unlike Carter I'm not trying to run a public game, but this was not purely commodity fetishism on my part. Last week I was messing around with Zak's Quickie Small Castle/Fort Generator and since I was lacking in d6s, I had to mix in d12s, things went pear-shaped ... but that's another post. For those sorts of things I need more dice. Perhaps a Pound-O-Dice would suffice. Ah that reminds me of the extemporaneous lyrics to I Worship Satan:
I'd like to sacrifice some rice. Now wouldn't that be nice? Build a sacrificial altar on the Rock of Gibraltar. And I didn't even falter.Anyhoo, here's the teaming horde I got for what you spend on a 6-pack in Pennsylvania:
That is 96 dice total. I'd like more of the d4, d8 and d12, but I do like a bunch of these dice. The many pairs of d20s I have will serve me well when I construct my Dice Golem; as testicles (for him) or boobs (for her). Or both! Hell I've got 5 pairs!d4: 7. 1 pair among them.d6: w/ pips: 18. Incl. matching sets of 4 and 6. Officially cool.d6: w/ numerals: 11. 2 pairs.d6: w/ special '6': 4. 1 pair (check out WTF below).d8: 5. 1 pair.d10 (0-9): 19. 5 pairs.d10 (00-90): 8. 1 pair.d12: 5. No pairs.d20: 19. 5 pairs, 3 triplets. Pretty much cool.
At any rate, cheap thrills from the Pound-O-Dice.
