Open Thread: Record Deals and Dice Games

Hosted by a pair o' dice
The title is inspired by this video right here: 

The sound quality isn't the best - you can hear the music but not most of the lyrics - but check out the drummer in the back.  Isn't he great?  That's my baby brother.


So for various reasons I'm getting ready to play a game of Hazards (the forerunner of craps) with a friend, which got us talking about dice luck, which got us talking about BAD dice luck (and who's had/seen worse rolls.)  And it's a fun fact that the most skeptical, rational, anti-fuzzy-thinker person will suddenly become incredibly superstitious once you put dice in their hands - anything from refusing to let it sit with a 1 facing up to literally threatening dice with the microwave if they don't shape up.

Open thread!  Do you have any funny or interesting dice-related stories (from roleplaying games or board games or just straight-up gambling, we don't judge)?  Any weird strings of good or bad luck in defiance of the laws of probability?  Anyone know any interesting and/or obscure dice games?  Anyone ever had a pair of loaded dice, or dice carved out of some valuable material?  Anyone have pictures of cool and unusual dice?  (Bonus points if someone provides gifs from the opening scene of The Road To El Dorado, I love that movie.)

Monday Reminder!  While I have fun coming up with pretty pictures and/or interesting “prompt” questions for open threads, you aren’t limited to those!  These threads are open - go wild, talk about whatever moves you!  (Just remember that this is still a safe space, please!)  

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
