Thirteen types of dice Mark has collected in ninteen years of table top gaming…

  1. Solid four, six, eight, ten, twelve and twenty sided dice.

  2. Gem plastic dice.

  3. Large Dice (regular red six sided dice for comparison).

  4. Small and tiny dice including glitter dice.

  5. Wooden alphabet dice.

  6. Emotion dice.

  7. Novelty spherical dice numbered one to six.

  8. A 2 side die (otherwise known as an old 10p coin before they went small and unsatisfying to flip).

  9. A thirty sided die that glows in the dark and has numbers you have to fill in with crayon to read. This is the die with the single largest range of numbers I own although you can get them numbered 1 to 100.

  10. Two averaging dice numbered 2, 3, 3, 4, 4 and 5. I also have some extreem dice numbered 1,1, 2, 4, 6 and 6 (not pictured because they are black and don’t show up well on photographs)

  11. Silver and gold metalic effect dice.

  12. A direction die N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and NW.

  13. Lots of simple, old fashioned, six sided dice in white plastic.

Really? There are twenty-sided dice? :0

Thanks for stopping by.

Mymsie Friday, June 15th, 2007

Whoa - never knew there were so many kinds!

spyscribbler Friday, June 15th, 2007

That's really neat, especially the 100-sided die! I should buy some gold ones for my DH's Christmas stocking!

Happy TT!

Kristi Friday, June 15th, 2007

I had no idea there were so many types of dice (or is that di?)...

Cool TT - love the pics!!!

Tink Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Wow, I didn't know there are so many different dice! They look great though!
Thanks for visiting my TT.

Lori Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Those are soooooooooo cool:)

PJ Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Very cool TT, my faves are the metallic ones.

Lesley Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Ohhh I love the metal ones!!! We've got a 100 sided one. ;) It keeps rolling and rolling but eventually it gives you a number :D My favorite is my ten sided glow in the dark die. :D Someday I will find a full d20 set in pink though! Sparkley would be ideal!

Ember Case Thursday, June 14th, 2007

I love them! My collection has frittered away - da*n kids keep running off with them.hkw

Tilly Greene Thursday, June 14th, 2007

What a collection! Hmmm, I think I still have some of the old 10p's hanging around - heavy and feels like money unlike the new which belongs in a Monopoly game.

Starrlight Thursday, June 14th, 2007

They look like gumdrops. Now I am hungry! Fun list =)

Fence Thursday, June 14th, 2007

I never even knew there were so many, the round ones look cool, but I'm guessing they aren't so practical :)

Miscellaneous-Mum Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Yes, but do you have any loaded die? (using the plural; it just looks wrong, though, eh?)

"loaded" meaning usually weighted to favour the 6?

Christine (XINE) Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Loved the wooden alphabet and emotion dice. Didn't know there were so many different versions out there.

Wylie Kinson Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Who knew? What a great collection. I recognize the multi-sided from playing Dungeons and Dragons back in highschool.

Raven Paranormal Blog Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Kewl pictures/dice!

Michelle M Pillow Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Great pics!!

maiylah Thursday, June 14th, 2007

wow ... fascinating collection! never knew there were lots of them!

happy T13

Thomma Lyn Thursday, June 14th, 2007

LOL! What a great idea for a TT. I recognized many of those types of dice from when I played role-playing games in college. :-D

Happy TT to you!

Shannon Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Wow! That's a whole lotta dice! I have a very lovely scar on my forehead from one of the many sided ones. (It was a scattergories dice and it had letters on it...still hurt just the same though!) Have a great weekend!

mama kelly Thursday, June 14th, 2007

You brought back some fond D&D memories. Happy T13.

Jolene Thursday, June 14th, 2007

The dice featured in #7 are pretty cool. I actually have a few of the others because I'm a board game fanatic.

Christine Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

I love the round die! Those are really cool. :)

Crimson Wife Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

I've got a number of those, guess I must be a game nerd too!

Thanks for sharing :-)

Dewey Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

Who knew there were so many types of dice? Can you actually use the round ones?
