A Plethora of Pips

In my early teens, I played a little bit of Dungeons and Dragons. I know it's hard to believe that a happenin' guy like me who's into such macho stuff as cartoons and dominoes would be interested in such a dorky activity, but that's the case.

During that time, I amassed an assortment of dice from other board games, the local hobby shop, and donations from friends and family.

I don't play D&D anymore, but the dice are still stored in this drawer cabinet which is normally reserved for assorted nuts and bolts. Here they are, from the least number of sides to the most.

3-Sided Dice
These actually have 6 sides, but the numbers
1, 2, and 3 each appear twice.

4-Sided Dice
The only dice where the number you roll is either
on the bottom or a corner.

6-Sided Dice, Pips
"Pip" is the techincal term for "dot".
Do I sound sophisticated? Didn't think so.

6-Sided Dice, Numbers
All the functionality of regular dice,
without any of that tricky pip counting.

6-Sided Dice, Smooth
No sharp corners that could poke your eyes out.

6-Sided Dice, Skulls
Instead of ones, these dice have scary skulls.

6-Sided Dice, Chaos
You can see how it earned its name.
Those crazy symbols are out of control!

6-Sided Dice, Stars
These were originally part of a board game
called Liar's Dice. It's true!

6-Sided Dice, Letters
How many words can you make with just six dice?

6-Sided Dice, Bowling
According to my math, I'm missing...
three dice from this set.

6-Sided Dice, Blank
I could never figure out what to put on it.

6-Sided Dice, Casino
These 1½" cubes came from an Atlantic City
souvenir shop.

6-Sided Dice, Crooked
There are no 90° angles on these dice.

6-Sided Dice, In Dice
Sure, dice in dice are fine, but when will
someone make dice in dice in dice?

6-Sided Dice, Wood
A pair of 2¼" wooden cubes,
handcrafted by my brother, Steve.

6-Sided Dice, Big
A bit larger than your average dice,
but we can do better.

6-Sided Dice, Bigger
You never know what you'll find at a yard sale,
like these nifty 4" blocks.

6-Sided Dice, Biggest
Giant, 6" foam dice from Five Below.

8-Sided Dice
This is the point where dice have enough sides
to start resembling jewels.

8-Sided Dice, Smiley
From another board game. The 8 is replaced
by a smiley face. Prophetic?

8-Sided Dice, Poker
Marlboro once marketed this set of poker dice
which includes suits.

10-Sided Dice, Numbers
One side for each toe,
unless you're a three-toed sloth.

10-Sided Dice, Pips
These are a little larger than their numbered
counterparts to accommodate all the pips.

10-Sided Dice, Percentage
These pairs show that there is no "I" in "team",
although there is one in "dice".

10-Sided Dice, Weird
I'm not sure what to make of this
unevenly-shaped thing.

12-Sided Dice
A dozen pentagons come together
to form this pleasing shape.

20-Sided Dice
One side for each finger and toe,
unless you're a three-toed sloth.

20-Sided Dice, Jumbo
55 millimeters tall!
It's extra large for those important rolls.

20-Sided Dice, Ring
Have you ever wanted to wear a die? Now you can!

20-Sided Dice, Inflatable
This huge, air-filled d20 is from Crystal Caste.

30-Sided Dice
I'm running out of ways to describe dice.
These are 30-sided dice.

34-Sided Dice
I suppose you could make a die for
any even number using this technique.

50-Sided Dice
The previous caption has proven to be correct.

100-Sided Dice
All other dice bow before
the almighty zocchihedron!

I love playing Super Mario Bros. games!
Now, where do I plug in the controller?
