Hello, my name is Gregg and I think I'm a specialty dice-a-holic.

<hi, Gregg.>

I don't know where the attraction started, but counting pips didn't cut it for me anymore...at first I tried games with massive amounts of traditional dice, but that only lasted for a while...ultimately I ended up looking for edgier stuff: weird mechanics, symbols, colors...you name it.

So maybe you're like me and you can't resist a strange set of dice and/or mechanics...sometimes the goofier the better...

This is my first GEEKLIST, so be kind.

I absolutely encourage you to add your favorite specialty-dice games and anecdotes the more, the merrier

Another Settlers of Catan entry. The event die is cool. Not only does it not have pips, it doesn't have six unique symbols. The Event card symbol is on there twice giving it a 2-1-1-1-1 distribution!

Who can forget the dice from War of the Ring?

(the color of the pips could be slightly lighter for easier reading!)

Okay, hear me out --

First of all, you have to see the D12 in this game to believe it. It's HUGE. Look at that picture -- it's a quarter next to it!

Next, this game (National Geographic Global Pursuit) turns up in thrift stores all the time. I bought a couple of these babies for fifty cents apiece. They are truly great.

No, I've never played the game. Don't intend to either. Look at that die though! Really!

In this game, you have two 6-sided dice: the white one goes from 1 to 4 and the black one goes from 3 to 6. Obviously, some numbers are repeated.

You choose which die to use when moving.
