Here is the best line from that auction:

5 shaped rolling pieces, ( a yellow triangle, an orange square, a light blue hexagon, a twenty sided white piece, and a green octagon.

I believe the seller means, "dice."


That's the early set of dice. Now wonder when universal colors started coming into play and the dice sizes changed.

I have a Holmes Wizard Logo set with B1 and those same five dice. Matches the description of a 4th+ print. It seems to be a fairly common arrangement on Ebay. According the Acaeum listing, even the last Holmes set printing (7th) could have the five "rainbow" dice. However, none of the Holmes set printings are listed as having the six "monochrome" dice. (Anybody have one they can verify as original?) Perhaps the six monochrome dice were first ordered/made by TSR in conjunction with the 8th print (Moldvay) and/or the Dragon Dice polyhedral sets?

The early Holmes basic sets had the multi-color dice.

I noticed monochrome dice...sort of a gray...appearing in the second generation of that set.

What struck me as funny was the terminology....5 shaped rolling pieces

Hi All,



Check out this listing, especially the seller's name and who the current (w/ 10+ hours to go) or 7th bidder is . . . I think they deserve each other:



http://cgi.ebay.com/Lot-of-16-Dungeons- ... 0077122811



Oops, I see by the bidding history that some members have bid, so I hope that no one is offended, as I was just pointing out the names of the seller & high bidder . . . I just loved the irony :wink:


"Okay, we turn the corner and see a Purple 'WHAT' !?!" . . (the DM rolls a 20 or so he says) . . It all went black right after that.

Interesting ... another guy from Reno offloading some D&D items. :)



Just for the record, all kidding aside, I want to make it clear that that is not me, I've never heard of the guy, and I have no idea what the joke is with his user ID. Actually, the first clue that it's not me is that the CougLander is the high bidder — not only do I hate his guts with a passion, but I've had him blocked for years now. :wink:

Pretty sure that's a 4th.  (Still interesting, IMHO.)

Thanks for the heads up, I started with the Moldvay pink box (q.v. other thread) and that looks like a good place to start my OD&D collection.

Good luck - I see you're the one and only bidder atm (it's on my watch list). One of my 'to do' things this year is to get the rest of the supplements (luckily print no./condition don't bother me so I can bide my time.
