Here’s something every D&D player ought to have if she (or he) wants to rub it in the nose of their Dungeon Master – a D20 that lights up when you roll a critical hit!

Product Features

  • Twenty-sided die flashes red when you roll a 20
  • Not a cheater die! Weighted evenly so you have to earn those 20s
  • Players: It is up to your GM whether you can use it in your game
  • GMs: The red glow makes you look even more evil behind the screen
  • Dimensions: approximately 1.5″ in diameter
  • Batteries included

I guess, if a GDDM were evil (Rodrigo), he would want to get one of these so he could sit back with a smug grin on his face as he wipes his party, but really, DMs are evil enough already without needing one of these to taught the players.

The ThinkGeek Critical Hit D20 only sets you back $9.99.

    I might want it, but I won’t be paying 10 bucks for a die anytime soon…

      And with the anormaly high number of crits you roll, the battery will be dead in a session! :)

      Anyway, being an avid table top gamer and a fan of Think Geek, I should’ve been extatic about this product, but honnestly, I don’t give a s*it.

    Since you have to open it to change the battery I guess it would break/loose balance relatively quickly. The 75 cents dice you can buy at most hobby stores will last you for many years if stored properly, this will break so no thank you.

    ME WANT: Me Ordered! For equal balance I also bought a huge metal dice and a Bag of Holding.

    I love awesome but unnecessary novelty items like this. I think I’ll buy one when I get my salary, if the shipping isn’t too much

    I got one. :)

    I love it, we play in one player’s basement (out of sight of his nerd-hating wife) and so the lighting is just perfect for them to groan when my face is lit up from behind the DM screen.

    Sure I paid $10 for it, but I have a big-boy job and wear big-boy pants, so I’ll live.
