I've been playing D&D for years, so OF COURSE I have 10,000,000,000 dice. I'm a bit of a dice addict actually  Roll Eyes So usually I have four or five sets that I play with and all my others adorn a giant wooden bowl in the middle of my game table! I have made several dice bags, and just can't seem to make myself happy with them. So the other day I was cleaning out boxes of old books, and found this Book of Days from the 40's and got the idea for this!

Here is the book cover. It is very old so its got some age stains, but I think it kinda adds to it.


TADA! My handy dandy, dice book! Around 50 dominoes make up the border and compartments. 5 small compartments, 1 larger just because, and of course the notebook space!

And here is the lid of the box. Random nerderyness! The three at the top are drawings I did. My husband as a dwarf is my favorite <3


I hope you like it! Comments and Feedback are always welcome <3

Fabulous!  There's something great about books with secret compartments generally, but you have done a great job!  You picked a great looking book too - I think the age marks add to it too!

I tried to play dungeons and dragons once until someone told me I wasn't allowed to summon a vicious cougar Smiley  But I'm sure that my friends that play (and I guess don't mind that for whatever reason vicious cougars are a no no) would love to get something like this.  Duly noted for Christmas or birthday time.

This is very clever. The cover just adds to the charm.
