Product description

A set of dice, made to be as close as we could make it (using currently available dice) to the original dice set included in the first edition of TSR's Dungeons and Dragons Basic Set.

In 1977 TSR hired J. Eric Holmes to produce the Basic Set as an introduction to D&D. This included a set of multicoloured dice, repurposed from teaching aids, in the five platonic shapes.

Since the 10-sided dice we use now are not a platonic shape, they were not included. The icosahedron (20-sided shape) was numbered 0-9 twice - to be able to use this as a d20 players would make half the numbers a different colour.
