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

You can see a picture of the die on the box - basically it has a picture of a character on each side - a princess, king, dwarf, knight, horse and magician to be precise. Quite cute and a good game to teach kids about throwing dice as it is nice and bog with rounded edges.

Hotels had a construction die you had to roll whenever you had the opportunity to add on to any of your hotels. Green meant you could, red meant you couldn't, the "2" side doubled the construction cost, and the "H" halved it. I think the other 2 sides were green but I can't remember.

Survive! has a custom die for creature movement. This pic is from a homemade version but the die (other than the gradient fill used on the labels) is the same as the official version.

The Millennium version of Monopoly has these cool crystal style dice, along with a board that does wacky things when you photograph it. Actually, this version is full of cool bits, from translucent paper money to stackable houses to futuristic looking pawns. Not that it does anything to improve the actual game play, but who cares about that?

You guys talked about it, but no one added it...

It's everyone's favorite horribly awesome, awesomely horrible game!

Too Ameritrash to be a Euro! Too Euro to be Ameritrash! Too cardy to be a dice game! Too dicey to be a card game! And what the deuce is up with that Story Track?

Doesn't matter, because your dice have exclamation points and ka-pows on them!
