So I won these d12s at an arcade only to realise they're not normal. Instead of having 1-12 on them, they have some array of numbers from 3-8 or 4-9. There were red, blue and white ones, and I don't know if all the same coloured ones had the same array of numbers or not.

The two I got is as follows:

  • Blue: a four in a circle, three fives in squares, two sixes, two sevens, three eights, and a nine.
  • White: as above, but one number lower (from three to eight)

All they (incorrectly) 'knew' was that they're for Dungeons and Dragons which afaik they are not.

    These definitely don't look like anything I've ever seen for D&D. – doppelgreener May 14 '19 at 12:49

These dice are for a game called GOLO Golf Dice.

enter image description here

I asked dice guru Kevin Cook at dicecollector.com and he recognized them almost immediately. This game is sold by a company called Zobmondo. It looks like the PDF rules are free to download, but you're missing some dice. In order to play, you're going to need the other seven dice since you roll all nine at the start of your turn.

    The arcade probably got these dice cheap, and are making a huge profit on them, while making them worthless as prizes. – CJ Dennis May 15 '19 at 2:06
  • Someone sent me this game as a Christmas gift five years ago. Recognized them immediately and still have them to this day. – Cloudy7 Apr 25 at 1:21

As SocioMatt answered, these are from the game GOLO. Crystal Caste used to include these in their bulk dice bags, which is probably where the arcade got them.
