    I was gonna say this was the first funny one in a while like I did in the last thread just so I could get #pipe riled up again but... I'm not quite sure I get this one. I'll read the news post tomorrow.

    not a matter of figuring it out because I figured it was a D&D term and it could ahve meant ANYTHING

    Situation would seem to tell you what that meant.

    He said he rolled the save, and was told by the DM that he believed he used "Jack Dice".

    Seems pretty cut and dry to me.

    while it may have been FAIRLY obvious

    it was not TOTALLY obvious

    Ah, I read it as "jacked dice" when I first read it. Which makes perfect sense to me.

    "Jack Dice" is a little weird though... Jinked, thats how we speak it in these parts.

    I imagine there's some news bit or story from the table that will really bring this one alive.

    Ah, I assumed that jacked dice was when the dice doesn't land directly on a number. Like, it's rolled and gets caught on something so that it doesn't quite land on one single number: stuck balanced between something like 2 and 20.

    At my table we call that a jink.

    It could mean

    or bullshit/invalid

    No matter how you drop them, a jack will always land a certain way.

    So, "jack dice" would be dice that are akin to jacks, in that they are somehow contrived to land in a certain way.

    "cooked" dice round my neck o' the woods. Referring to the nefarious practice of placing dice in a microwave with the desired result faceup for a few seconds. The plastic melts slightly, ensuring that one end is heavier than the other. More of a problem among the wargamer crowd than the pen and paper crowd, I find. But then I don't play Dungeons and Dragons to "win".

    Testimony Monday suggested a motive for the attacks may have grown from the trio playing the fantasy role-playing game "Dungeons and Dragons" and jealousy over a girl who King and Bryson knew.

    I'm willing to bet reason two had more to do with it.

    I figure it means one of two things, A, the die landed on something on the table that made it so it wasn't flat, causing the GM to say it doesn't count and to reroll, or he was accused of rigging his dice and had to roll a new die.
