PC Dice Make Troubleshooting Easy

“PC Dice” are the perfect tchotchke for the computer tweaker in your life, 3d6 of failure scrying. Throw the bones to determine what’s wrong with any computer, no matter what armor class. They’re $27 a set, wildly overpriced, but perhaps worth it for a shared chuckle or two.

According to Oh Gizmo!:

If you’re curious, the blue die includes the words Install, New PC, Upgrade, No Idea, Quit and $$. The green die includes Virus, Spyware, Modem, Video, Network and Reboot. And the red die includes Windows, Unix, Linux, Wireless, Wired and Mixed.

    The D&D player’s version of the classic Excuse Calendar. I like it.

    Where is the missing fourth die, which has “reboot” on every side?

    These are awesome!

    I’d be rolling Quit, Install Linux quite a few times. I’d buy them now if they weren’t so expensive.

    Update Windows Spyware? If you say so.

    I sort of assumed the die pictured with “Windows” face up would be the same on all sides… The reboot one is probably more politically correct though.
