Introduction: Knex 8-Sided Die!

This is a really simple die you can make in about 5 minutes!

Its not your traditional die with 6 sides so you cant use this for common board games and things like that, but rather stuff like choosing who goes first via the highest number, or deciding how many seconds to count for hide and seek, multiplied by 10. But really you can choose what you want to do with it.

Turn it into a slot machine or something, like DJ Radio said.

This is pretty neat, but it feels like a missed opportunity. You could have put it on a giant lever machine and made the ible 5 times as awesome. Just an idea.

Nice and simple. :-) But there is one problem... I don't think I have enough pieces to build it. :-(
