I have a couple of D4's in my collection I think, although I can't say that i have used them.

Clearly you have never played an arcane spellcaster in D&D, then.  8)

Trigger notice, please!

I'm having a D4 hit points flashback.

I forgot we had this thread.  Here is my collection of ASL specialty dice.

Very cool. Did you get them all from a specific place or just collected them throughout the years?

They are all Battle School dice.  He designs the dice with certain themes, or just different nationalities.  They are very nice, although like most dice they tend to roll boxcars when what I really needed was snake eyes.   >:D

Thanks!

Bluetooth enable 6-sided dice.

An interesting concept with potential use for online play of wargames. $120 sticker price (for 5 dice) put's them in a similar price range to the BattleDice. Unlike the BattleDice, balance IS likely to be an issue.

I could almost buy a large, dubious, ACW game with that amount of money  :whistle:

I never posted by dice from Black Oak this year, but it's not a bunch.

An oversize d20 w/ a diamond for the 20, a matched pink/purple cat set of d6/d20 for Bayonette, a V for Vendetta inspired knife die, and a glow-in-the-dark cthulhu-looking die.  There's also a 7-piece standard RPG set (4/6/8/10/00/12/20), a d2 masquerading as a drink coaster, and 2 dice bags, one of which was the Kickstarter prototype for the campaign that closed on Sunday at Origins.

So not near as much as normal, but that was true of most of my Origins loot this year as I was trying to keep things a bit more frugal.

That's still excellent, even for a smaller haul.  The "V" die and d2/coaster are probably my favorite.  :bigthumb:
