I have an early edition of Escape from Colditz that is in VGC and was looking to sell. Whilst checking it out I noticed that one of the 2 red plastic six sided dice was unusual. It has only four sides with dimples - the 3 and 4 are present and opposite each other; and the 5 and 6 are present and opposite each other. The other 2 sides are smooth. The 2nd dice is normal.

I can find nothing in the rules of the game to say why the dice is like this. Can anyone offer any clues as to whether or not this dice belongs to this game and, if not, to which game it might belong?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

P.S. From my recollection my copy of Escape from Colditz came with two normal d6, is it possible an extra die has been put in your set over the years.

The proper dice are normal D6 - they have to be rolled together & added, so they have to be normal to get the expected results.
