Puzzling Dice

Mister Nizz

What the..?

A recent glance at a CSW headline had me visiting ADVANCING HOARDS to check out their "sale of vintage gaming items". I was walking down memory lane when I saw these items:

A Three Sided Dice

and A Seven Sided Dice

And a Twenty-Four Sided Dice. all of these by Gamescience.

These are certainly cool-looking, and functional, I guess. I just have to wonder, who the hell needs 1-7, 1-3 or 1-24 odds on any test of numbers? Seven sides is a bit odd, I admit, but the other two odds are easily determined with existing dice designs. Of course, when it comes to dice, just having something like these dice types gives a person a sort of geek status.
