Here at Tales of a GM, I am running the 12 Days of Dicember project, a way for us to share our love of dice. Each day this month, until the twelfth, there is a new question to spark a conversation about the dice we love.
Which is the strangest die in your collection?
The question for day four is highly subjective. I chose a die I knew nothing about. This die was a mystery to me, as I cannot recall where it came from or why I own it. I suspect I bought it back when I worked at Lingards Games.
Diligent research as part of The 12 Days of Dicember revealed how this die comes from the Inn Fighting dice game, released by Wizards of the Coast in 2007. The game was designed by Rob Heinsoo, who I saw on a panel at Dragonmeet on Saturday. It is strange how these little details link up.
This red die is the most attractive one from the game, which also includes five white dice of the same design. Curiously enough, I have those dice in my collection too. Yet, I cannot recall buying the game. Soon I will unpack my games collection from the deep cupboard, to transfer it to the smaller cupboards in the dining room. Maybe I will find the rest of the game hidden away in a box.
