I kid you not dear reader, Christie’s auctioned an authentic glass D20 used by the Romans as a gaming die. This dodecahedron (twenty-sided) dice was acquired in Egypt during the 1920′s. Now this is where it gets interesting, scholars have yet to find out what the hell did the romans play with these things.
So an artifact used by modern geek gaming is found to have been used in ancient times, its found in Egypt and we have no idea what exactly it was for. Ladies and gentlemen, I think we are living in a bad Yu-Gi-Oh sequel. Not that there’s a good sequel anyway.
That’s it, if some white-haired rich guy bought this and starts some sort of global Dungeons and Dragons tournament I’m quitting this life while I’m ahead. I wouldn’t want to be here when it hits a second season.
