This was a fun experience and one I hope they bring back in the 5E basic set for nostalgia. Being 10ish years old I still had a respectable crayon collection available to ink dice with. Those early sets only came with a white crayon. After the dice were all inked they went proudly inside a Crown Royal bag. You see back in the 80s you were not cool unless you had one.
You can still ink dice by ordering Gamescience unpainted sets and color them up. So who else recalls doing this and still has some vintage dice that survived the carpets of the 80s and that foul beast known as the vacuum cleaner?
