Default How many Munchkin dice are there?

Between what comes eight the games, the jumbos, the d10's, the quest dice, the promotional ones, the Pegasus ones, and the unofficial ones how many are there? I've been curious for a while and haven't been able to figure it out.

Interesting question. Am I correct in my belief that some of the dice started out as just "normal" dice and had the Munchkin Head for the One introduced later? And if so, would one count the non-Munchkin Head versions as separate?

Just to start the conversation, there are unique dice for each Core version of Munchkin, so that's 13 right there.

Quest has 6 colors.

There were the 6 sets of Jumbo D6s in the rainbow colors, so that's another 12.

There were GitD, Sparkly Pink, Ichor Green, Black, and Swirly Pink versions of the Jumbo D6, so that's another 10.

There were Red, Green, Blue, and Gold Holiday Jumbo D6s, so add another 4.

There were Fairy Dust Dice. +1

There were the Radioactive Dice, half of which, I believe, were the same as the Apocalypse die, but the other ones were the reverse. +1

There was the other Jumbo D6 that was a W23 order incentive. Red and Black, I believe, with different art from the others. +1

The original Target Munchkin set had a unique die, I believe. +1

The loose Munckin D6s from W23 have, I think, 4 more unique colors?

I feel like there was another incentive die from W23, too.

Holiday Surprise, I think, had a unique die.

Did the Holiday Munchkin set have a unique die?

I see a new product listed for Decay Dice for Munchkin Zombies, but I think the two colors there are the same as two of the loose D6s.

So what does that give us so far, assuming everything I listed was, in fact, a unique die?

56 (and Munchkin Game Changers will add another, with larger Fairy Dust dice).

I've no idea how many different D10s there were. I won't even hazard a guess as to unofficial ones. I'm sure I've missed some other ones, too.

I think the incentive die was the same as the Target die. We probably should add the colours to the list to ensure we don't duplicate. I may do this later today, actually.

Holiday Surprise has 2. Red and Green. The W23 incentive is the same copper as the Target Die.

From Q Workshop there are: Wicked D10, Holiday Wicked D10 (red) The Cthulhu Dice of Doom which included a D10 and two identical D6s. There are two other pairs of unofficial D6s and one unofficial D10.

Munchkin Dice had 6 D10s, and there are a bunch of misprint, promo and the new set from Germany. So I don't know what's up there.

There's six German D10, 12 American (6 misprint/6 correct number size), and the black promo (which there's a misprint of as well). That makes 20, but there may be more.

They weren't "unofficial"; they were unauthorized and QW lost their license over them. You should exclude them from any count of actual Munchkin dice, because they aren't.

Similarly, misprinted dice aren't official, and therefore should not be included in a list of Munchkin dice. You might as well include those charming IP-infringing fan Munchkin expansions in a list of Munchkin supplements.

If you don't count misprint dice, can you count the misprinted Munchkin die that came in Awful Green Things?

I just saw this a minute ago. Was this announced at some point and I missed it?
