When Tom Anders of Impact Miniatures assembled all of the orders for the dice sets offered in our DCC #100: The Music of the Spheres (is Chaos) and Dark Tower Kickstarters, he took a picture of the enormous 3/4 ton pile of polyhedral treasure and sent it our way. And, of course, we just had to have a contest to guess how many dice we were looking at. Here’s the picture:
Some of you resorted to enumerational incantations or forbidden pacts with extra-planar geometers to unlock the answer, while others consulted machine-learning multi-valent rogue AIs or furiously pounded the keys on their estimatorinators to arrive at a solution. A few wild cards simply guessed. Whatever the method, 282 of you put your best estimate forward, with answers ranging from 5 to 240,000,000!
But, of course, there can be but one winner, one closest guesser, one diciest of the dicey . . .
And that winner is Ronald Gardner, who was only off by 813!
Congratulations, Ronald, and thanks to all of you who participated in the contest to guess our 98,280 dice.
