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? – Xirema Nov 27 '18 at 17:29

    Is no one else impressed a how perfectly OP managed to get the backdrops lined up for both pictures? – goodguy5 Nov 27 '18 at 17:40

    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. – ilkkachu Nov 28 '18 at 13:06

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.

...in particular, this picture:

    Is it proper to answer what turned out to be a non-RPG related question? – RichardJ Nov 27 '18 at 17:38

    It's fine to answer--as to what happens to the question itself... pondering. – nitsua60 Nov 27 '18 at 17:45

    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 (And an outdated yet semi-related Meta question.) – Hey I Can Chan Nov 27 '18 at 17:50

    @HeyICanChan I've never played it, but according to boardgamegeek it's purely a trivia board game with no RP elements. – RichardJ Nov 27 '18 at 18:00

    I can do that later when I get home. The owner likes the random spread to use as a fall damage die. – Longspeak Nov 27 '18 at 18:36
