Nerd Cred- I Haz It!

Well, I just impressed a Sgt with my nerd credentials. LOL. I was putting in his evidence and we found a pair of dice mixed in with the drug paraphernalia. So I listed them as 6 sided dice. When I handed him the receipt at the end, he looked it over and started laughing. “Well, of course they’re 6 sided. All dice are.”

I looked him straight in the eye and said “You never played Dungeons & Dragons as a kid, did you?” Then I pulled up Google Images to show him the myriad types of gaming dice there are. His eyes got big and he shook his head.

“Just when I think I know you, you go and throw something new at me. Damn, girl.”

Wait until I tell him about my sword...

 If I was still gaming, I'd love a set of these steampunk dice.  
This is sort of what my default set looked like.    This is a fair idea of what my dice bag looked like when spilled across the table. Only most of mine were purple & black. Surprised?

Thanks again to Google Images for the pictures.


  1. I laughed right after reading "All dice are six-sided!"... Before I read your response I thought: "This guy has never played Dungeons and Dragons"!

  2. I gave up LARPs about 8 years ago, and finally gave up tabletop gaming about 5 years ago, but I still have my big bag o'dice. You should have seen his face when I tried to describe LARPing to him. Good thing he already thought I was kind of weird, or that would have really done it!
