 Posted: Mon Jan 30, 2012 9:46 pm    Post subject: 1 So being a nerd, I bought myself a chessex pound-o-dice. It is what is says on the tin, a bag full of a pound's worth of dice. They're a variety of d4s, d6s, d8s, d10s, d12s, d20s and percentage dice. I figured it'd be fun to do a little single submission game with then. I could do guess the number of dice, but that's too easy and no fun for me. Instead I am going to open the bag and roll all the dice at once. Before that I am taking guesses on what the total sum is going to be, and closest wins! Here are pictures of the front and back of the bag. You see the envelope in the middle, it's a set of 7 basic polyhedral dice, so one each of d4, d6, d8, 2d%, d12, and d20. For those who don't know, percentage dice are 10 sided dice, one has 0-9 on it, and the other has 00, 10, 20, etc to 90 on it. I will be counting say a 50 as a 50 not a 5, just for clarity. Also some of the dice have symbols on the side that would be a one or six for decoration, those I will count as the number they would be instead. So yeah, PM your guesses, closest wins! Wins what? The thrill of Victory! Contest closes this friday night, when I will no longer be able to handle the temptation, and then will break open the bag and take them for their maiden roll. I'll try to make a video and upload it so you can see the action _________________I'll have a P please...Last edited by lexprod on Sun Feb 05, 2012 2:33 am; edited 1 time in total
