Giant Twelve-Sided Die

No, it's not just as big as your head. Paul Carson made one out of welded sheet metal that's so big that it will barely fit in the back of a pickup truck.

I suggest that you turn the sound level on your speakers down before starting the video.

I'm with the guy who was asking, in the last minute of the film why a 12 sided?

In D&D, the Barbarian class uses a 12 sided to generate hit points every level, and it is used to roll damage for (I think) a great sword.

But, unless you are playing a barbarian with a great sword, then there is no real use for the thing.

Maybe that is why he decided to make such a huge metal version. For sure, you're not going to be rolling that around during your weekly gaming session.

As the other guy said, they're useful in Rolemaster.
