The prize will go to whoever gets DDTQ#10 right, provided an answer is found to DDTQs#7-9.

The prize will also be announced at that time.

And the prize is NOT my pelters...or me...in fact, I don't quite know what it is...

Then the next question is probably: Which SAI is the rarest?
Take the entire amount of dice in existence worldwide and count the number of sides showing a certain SAI. Lowest number = rarest SAI.

Actually I don't know the right answer, but I have three suspects.

(Those who know the exact numbers may not post the right answer before tomorrow.)

OK, I figured it out, and the answer is really going to surprise everyone. I'll wait to post this tomorrow night.

I'm assuming it's normal production dice, so the TSR Logo won't work...

I can't wait until tomorrow, I was trying to work this out logically and I had it all way way down to reprint frostbreath, but then I realized that for an SAI you have to add the original release as well.

so then I got into wondering if the total number of orignal plus reprint of any reprinted race was more or less than any non-reprinted races numbers...

then I decided I didn't really care that much.

so its either frostbreath or any face on the kings die(but those aren't sai's) so I'm sticking with frostbreath.

Go back and read Autpost's rules. "entire amount of dice in existence worldwide". Nothing about promo or productions.

Frostbreath can be found only on one unit and only on one side, but the Cryohydra is not a rare monster. If you count Promos as well, there are a lot of frostbreaths out there.

I thought about frostbreath a lot. look at the three ultra-rare monsters that have been reprinted, no unique SAI's on them.

look at the rare monsters of the races that ahve been reprinted, either no unique or a its on the monster twice.

I made an assumption that there are less than twice as many uncommon monsters as rare monsters.

'all dice in existance'... I got it. the Treasure icon on a wyrm. that is an SAI right?

or its gotta be the TSR logo on the slayer/master/lord/dkin.

Does that count as a seperate SAI from the ones on the other medallions? Just because they do different things they are still the same icon.

if we count those as different I think there were less slayer TSR logo icons.

They are listed as seperate SAIs in the rules.

Autpost needs to make some clarifications.

I don't know either. The logo is confusing; I would suggest two questions: (with and without logo)

1.) Considering all logos as only one SAI which has the name "Logo" and the effect: use die-specific ability. For clarity reasons it is seperated into 8 parts in the SAI-list.

2.) As it is written in the SAI-list of the rules: There are listed 8 logo-SAIs:
SFR Logo (Dragonhunter)
SFR/TSR Logo (Dragonkin Champion)
SFR/TSR Logo (Dragonlord)
SFR/TSR Logo (Dragonmaster)
SFR/TSR Logo (Dragonslayer)
SFR/TSR Logo (Bronze Medallion)
SFR/TSR Logo (Gold Medallion)
SFR/TSR Logo (Silver Medallion)
So in this list there is no King's ID, white dragon breath, TSR Logo (gold DKC), Sonic Blast, Trample with a border, ...

What about Charm and Teleport? There are not so many Treefolks produced and the Unicorn is rare.

Trust me. There are plenty of Treefolk, and plenty of Unicorns. Unicorns have a rarity of 1:11. Omyrr, Frost Ogre, and Unseelie Faeries have rarity of 1:60. I can tell you there are more Unicorns made than Frost Ogre and Unseelie Faeries. There are more Omyrrs made than Unicorns.

Well, if you count each SAI that has a different description as unique, then it's the TSR on the Gold Medallion. If you count each SAI that is a different symbol, then the five racial faces on the Kings' Die are the rarest. However, if you count each Dragon breath as unique, then it's the Hybrid dragon's Breath SAI. And yes, Dragon Breath is a SAI.
