Wishing I had a picture of these to show... when I worked in Law Enforcement I met a group of guys who played Dangerous Journys in prison. They were not allowed to have real dice per the prison rules so they made a full set of dice out wet paper. They took layers of paper and wet them and then molded them into dice and when they dried they were functioning dice. They were not perfect but you could tell the difference in all of the dice and they did roll fairly well.

Interesting .. I did know about not being allowed to have dice ... I wonder if someone could mail them foldable dice http://www.dicecollector.com/MY_PAPER.HTM ... or would that be a violation of the rules ... I wonder if the rule against dice is due to ... they could be somehow used nefariously ... or they can be used to gamble

LOL ..its complicated ... but the simple answer is .. more than me ... and the current count is 43886

And no .. you cant just goto a dice manufacturer and have them make you 50000 of the same die :P

There are rules that were agreed upon by Guinness before I first set the record 10 years ago

A friend just sent this to me: ancient D20 found in Eqypt!

@#%#$Y*&^!@#!!!!~!!!!  Time Travellers.  Never picking up their trash. Always leaving behind clues.  Sigh.  Really, the Temporal Transit Committee is probably going to pull someone's license for this one.
