A Jedi carries a chance cube, and I carry this old dice. I've mentioned in a few of my posts about me rolling a dice before I enter any antique store, flea market, or thrift store. And the roll of this dice is my spending limit for that place. Anyhow this is the dice I have mentioned about in my posts whenever I bring it up. It is Bakelite from the 1940's and an official gambling dice, measures 9/16 of an inch and stamped with the letter W on the 2 spot. I guess I could call it a medium, it serves me well. I just think it's cool! =^'

    So is it a power of ten? 1=$10?

    Very Cool, Tom!
    I have a friend that uses a pendulum, for the yea or nay of whether or not to purchase:), I love it when the velvet bag that it's kept in suddenly appears.

    What a great idea. I just carry a certain amount of cash and don't spend over that...a little boring. I have some of these dice. Recently I made a charm bracelet out of a few of them and some old majong tiles.

    LoL Aimers, I found a loophole to the dice. What ever change is left over I keep in a Crown Royal pouch after awhile a descent amount accumulates giving me a 2nd door option for a bonus purchase! >.<

    Amber you read me too well, yes 1 is the ace. I have on occasion rolled a 1 but no too often. 1 is a lonely number, but the prize is always more rewarding! LoL
    Thank you for the love =)

    Hi Budek, I used to used a pendulum as well. But the dice is easier to carry around.
    Many thanks Budek! =)
