Here is a number of “Dice Advice” for your edification and amusement. Do with it what you will really. No guarantees. Some of these ideas did actually add up to me for a while. But then some other completely unclear instruction gets here and it too makes sense, in a unique superstitious way. The whole thing is rather confusing. Please read on and you’ll see why.dnd dice

What to wear:

Never thought about the best things to wear while gaming? Well don’t worry, you don’t have to get clothed to have good luck. In fact, according to the traditional stories surrounding the game of Craps, “Dirt brings luck. Wear dirty clothes and you’ll be lucky. inches (Hey, that explains that odd odour wafting out of my local game store the other day. There must have been a lot of REALLY lucky gamers in there! )

Where to sit:

Well, sitting on a handkerchief while gaming is allowed to be lucky. (Best not to combine this one with the “Dirt brings luck” concept… ewww. )

Sitting astride your chair is lucky too. (Tipping your chair back is not lucky however, specially when we were teenagers and an indivdual’s mother caught us doing it. Ouch. )

Storing Cube:

“Never leave a d20 sitting with the #1 facing up. It will become accustomed to sitting that way, and roll 1’s more often. inches The “scientific” alibi for this belief says that there is a “molecular drift” or “dice creep” due to gravity, causing the die to become bottom heavy. This would make more sense if cube were semi-liquid, but last time I checked all my cube were solid. Check yours now, just to be sure.
