Move Over Ancient Romans!: New Oldest D-20 Die Found

November 9, 2012 / 17 Comments

In news so exciting it stopped my heart and I had to chug a half dozen Monster Energy Drinks to bring myself back to life and even that didn't work so I'm dead now, a new world's oldest d20 die has been found IN EGYPT. The previous record holder was a Roman glass die from around the 2nd century AD, but this one -- this one IS EVEN OLDER. I hope you're sitting down:
Pictured above is a twenty-faced die dating from somewhere between 304 and 30 B.C., a timespan also known as Egypt's Ptolemaic Period.​
So the Egyptians played Dungeons and Dragons too! No, no they didn't. I don't know what they played. Probably dead so the slave-master wouldn't make them work on the pyramid that day. Still, I can't believe they even had the skill to cut and carve things so intricately back then. Because I was just cutting up a hotdog to make beanie weenies and almost took a finger off. ALMOST. See? "No, it's gone." *puking beans and weenies*
Thanks to Sarah and jeffery, who just rolled to see who's paying for beers tonight.


Ideologically Unsound
I had no idea anyone gave that much of a fuck about dice.

Is this like one of those magic-elf-dragon cards you guys talk about?


Looks like something Tolkein would have invented. Cool shit.


Darkness always says hello.
I found something older.
