Hello,
I was hoping that someone would have some knowledge of the original multi-sided dice that were found on the product lists of the OD&D supplements.  Were they the same dice found in the 1st edition basic set that came out in 1977?  Those were the 5 polyhedrons that were each a different color with no d10 present?  I have read that the original dice were poorly made but have not found a good description of them.

Thanks in advance,

Andy

Thank you!  That helps.  Folks that posted on that thread implied that the original dice sold seperately by TSR were, in fact, the multicolored super high impact set of 5 that was also in the 1st printing of the 1st basic set.  I will run on that assumption until I learn more.

Thanks again.

Andy

NB - he has sold these before - I reckon he has a pile of them in storage. You might even be in for a 2nd chance offer situation withy some of these, which NK has done before.
