Dicember 2017, Day 10: Workaholic

Tales of a GM is running the 12 Days of Dicember, a project dedicated dice in all their randomized glory. The question for the tenth day of Dicember is “Which are your hardest working dice?”

My d20s work the hardest at my gaming table, regardless of which side of the dungeon master’s screen I’m on. Dungeons & Dragons, in all its various flavors and variants (including a Pathfinder stint) has been my gaming group’s go-to game for most of its 20+ years. We occasionally dabble with games that rely on different dice, like Savage Worlds, where the d6 wild die gets a lot of work, or Call of Cthulhu, where you’re always rolling d10s for for percentage skill checks, but we keep coming back to D&D … and our d20s.

  1. Hi Ken,

    Yes, another vote for the trusty d20.

    This year the second-place die for our group would be the d6 after several Powered by the Apocalypse games. All those other polyhedrals barely have a roll at all.

    Happy Dicing
    Phil
