I recently got an Undead/Feral starter pack, and one of the dice (a common Skeleton) has a sprue on one edge. Not sure how well you can see it, but here's a picture:

Skeleton

It's not major, but I feel like it might influence rolling slightly. I thought about sanding it down, but would that mess with the finish? I guess my question is, what do you guys do when you get a sprue on one of your dice- sand it, remove it some other way, or just not use that die?[/img]

Wow, that's pretty major. I've never seen a Dragon Die like that before.

I guess I've never seen any dice with errors like that- I assumed it was relatively common. And thanks for linking the picture- I'm not sure why my image tag didn't work, but I changed the link above.

I've seen this before, but it isn't real common.

personally, I keep it as an oddity, but I don't play with it unless I have to.

I call that "bloated".

I have a few, ironically some are Coral elves.

I found this to be most common on the TSR Frostwings, having said that though it is still pretty rare. I've got 2 TSR Frostwings commons with this. I don't play with them, they're in the spares pile!
