Anonymous asked: You play D&D? I seriously doubt that. I bet you don't even know what dice are.
Wait wait wait so you’re telling me
That these things aren’t elaborately shaped slightly mathematical candies?
I’m still gunna check
AS WE ALL KNOW, WE WOMEN CANNOT UNDERSTAND COMPLICATED THINGS LIKE DICE
ONLY MANLY MEN KNOW WHAT DICE ARE
OMG, I’m laughing so hard right now.
Can I just take a minute to brag, here?
Most of my friends know that I collect dice. I tell them, “Some women collect jewelry; I collect dice. They’re just as pretty, and way more useful.”
I’ve even got two full sets of sharp-edged Lou Zocchi dice, including 3, 14, 16, and 24-siders. (I have a 7-sider, too, but he only made one version of that) That’s right, I had to mail order them from him, but I own some of the best, least-biased roleplaying dice in the world. And if you already know who Zocchi is WITHOUT GOOGLING HIM, you are a hardcore gamer and deserve serious geek cred (and are probably older than me).
Anyway, I’ve gotta go. My friends and I are playing our weekly Traveller game in about 20 minutes. With my husband’s custom system and my dice, of course.
P.S. I believe Think Geek does sell chocolates shaped like dice, though. If you’re hungry for elaborately-shaped, slightly mathematical candies.
