In my early teens, I played a little bit of Dungeons and Dragons. I know it's hard to believe that a happenin' guy like me who's into such macho stuff as cartoons and dominoes would be interested in such a dorky activity, but that's the case.
During that time, I amassed an assortment of dice from other board games, the local hobby shop, and donations from friends and family.
I don't play D&D anymore, but the dice are still stored in this drawer cabinet which is normally reserved for assorted nuts and bolts. Here they are, from the least number of sides to the most.
