Dice War: I talked to Daddy about getting involved with G's fact mastery... Daddy is an engineer and likes games so I knew he would come up with something. He created dice wars.

Daddy has all kinds of die left over from his high school dungeon & dragon days so we have up to 20 sided dice to choose from.
