Last year, I got the the gaming crew each a copy of the Swords and Wizardry Whitebox Rules. That went over well, with it actually being used to spread the gospel of the OSR to uninitiated gamers.
This year, I didn't have so much money - especially since the regular gaming crew is up to ten people now. So I went the less expensive route of hand crafting some presents.
I made hand painted dice and handed them out in tonight's gaming session.
These are Redshirt Dice. See the little red shirts? The Star Trek Emblem is a six. The red shirt is a one. Each player got a pair, so when they roll double red shirts, they fail their skill check hard. Yay!
Adelaide made some awesome dice bags for us too. Everyone got a very different type. I didn't get a photo of them all, but I got a picture of the most important one - mine. I have named it THE SPACE BAG.
It is sooo big, I can fit a sixteenth of my dice in it. It's perfect for the Redshirts game. :)
