As we haven't had one of these for a while, you may find it instructive to check out this post I made eight years ago on the subject ...

I presume the question should say "six sided die", as dice is the plural.... ;-)

Seems I left a lot of loopholes so OP edited, please play nicely or else I will have to void the quiz, which seems a shame :(

For anyone that needs to amend their original entries you still have a few days - unfortunately any answers that do NOT meet the clear criteria will score the incorrect penalty points...
For example I cannot accept side 62 of a Mongolian dice or a boomerang from the Celebrity Jungle version of Cluedo or a Scrabble tile from the Russian version or a Chess piece from the Star Trek version...

This really defeats the object of the quiz which is to give a rare/unique answer from a relatively small number/pool of options...

For example what would be the point of having a rare entries quiz with questions such as; "name any town in the world" or "name any TV programme ever made"

Thank you for your understanding...

***bump***

I will extend this to the end of the week to allow amendments if you want to avoid the incorrect answer penalty points or any further entries

Close out is Midnight on Friday 5th June

I supplied correct answers to the questions. It is not in the spirit of the game to change the questions later!

The choice is yours please abide by my request, nobody else has a problem and have done so - I Don't think I will bother with any of these in the future :(

It's supposed to be a bit of fun not a debate
