Fascinating!  I've come across a couple vague mentions of them before, but didn't really know what they were or how they worked.

I had a set of loaded d6s back in the day that I brought to RPG games. I never used them, just had them for comedic effect. They were WAY too obvious.

I want a d20 that replaces the 3 and the 6 with an extra 17/18

Everyone would notice an extra 20 or a missing 1. But who looks for a 3 or an extra 17?

Hint; never play a game with Brant that requires a D20.

yeah, but back to my point: who remembers a 3 on a d20?

Well, at least now I feel a bit less guilty about spending $40 on that metallic dice set a while back.
