Gaming with my daughter's boyfriend, I noticed this die. I asked him about it, but his tl;dr was it was a found die, and he has no idea what it's for or from. Any ideas?

D6 Faces 3, 4, 6 D6 Faces 7, 10, 11

I do note that 3 & 4 are the average of a d6, 6 & 7 are the average of a d12, and 10 & 11 are the average of a d20. But other than that I've got nothing. Google has failed me... or I have failed Google.

Who knows where this die is from?

    To be clear, these pictures are both of the same die?

    3 & 4 are the middle two values of a d6, the average value of the die roll is 3.5. It doesn't make sense to present two values as the average.

It seems to be from the board game 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone', according to this post on reddit:

I own the US/English version of the game. The dice numbers are 4, 6, 11, 7, 3, 10.

    Is it proper to answer what turned out to be a non-RPG related question?

    It's fine to answer--as to what happens to the question itself... pondering.

    Can this answer include a description of the game's role-playing elements? (I'd like to give the moderators an excuse to keep this question instead of migrating it elsewhere!) (And an outdated yet semi-related Meta question.)

    @HeyICanChan I've never played it, but according to boardgamegeek it's purely a trivia board game with no RP elements.

    I can do that later when I get home. The owner likes the random spread to use as a fall damage die.
