Dice weights + sex dice = whatever you want, whenever you want it. Just sayin'. Davidy22[talk] 14:00, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

In D&D, initiative is rolled with a d20 (20 sided die) so it would be unlikely that the title-text would ever happen. Even if it did, real role-players have a LOT of dice. I personally have more d6s (cube die) than all my other dice. 10:12, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

I tried to search for sex dice and I could not find any types that would explain the title text. Taking initiative and rolling one of those actions mentioned here in this picture (it is SFW) would not give a wow response, I think. This seems to be the typical words, and then there are places, body parts and positions. But it must be presumed in this comic that it is still the action dice that Cueball and Megan are missing they are using... Also these other dice would not make any difference. Only if you are using more dice to make a sentence but that would not be clear from the title text --Kynde (talk) 15:57, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

It's just a pun on "rolling for initiative" vs. "taking the initiative" in the sense of making the first move romantically or sexually. Any action on the die that isn't a normal part of combat (including fondling, which we know is on the die, as well as licking or sucking) would constitute "taking the initiative" as the player would be initiating a sexual encounter with the enemy. I don't think the "wow" reaction implies that the die has rolled a particularly weird or extreme sex act, it's just that walking up to someone and e.g. fondling or licking them without even speaking to them first is in itself a pretty extreme way to take the initiative. I don't think it necessarily even indicates surprise (as they know they are playing with the sex dice), it's just an intensifier along the lines of "boy, do you ever..." 17:39, 24 October 2023 (UTC)
