Letter Dice 8
What are the six letters on each of the four dice?
October 24, 2005
According to the introduction, each of the 24 faces of the Letter Dice has a different letter on it; the letters Q and X do not appear. Given the word RAMP, we arbitrarily assign R to die 1, A to die 2, M to die 3, and P to die 4. From MADE, E isn't on die 2 or die 3; while from JERK, E isn't in die 1. E is on die 4, with D then on die 1 (MADE). Given GILD, L isn't on die 1 with D; while given HALT, L isn't on die 2 with A. L is on die 3 or die 4. If L were on die 3, from GILD, I wouldn't be on die 1 with D or on die 3 with L; nor would I be on die 4 with E (HIKE). I would be on die 2, with the G in GILD then on die 4. From POST and HALT, T would be on die 1 and H on die 4 with E--a conflict with HIKE. So, L is on die 4. In GILD, either G is on die 2 and I on 3, or vice versa. Trying the latter, I on die 2 and G on 3, K wouldn't be on die 1 or die 4 (JERK), nor on die 2 (HIKE); K would be on die 3, with the H in HIKE on die 1. The T in HALT would be on die 3, while the J on JERK would be on die 2. S wouldn't be on die 1 or die 2 (WISH) and would be on die 3 or die 4--a conflict with POST. Therefore, from GILD, G is on die 2 and I on die 3. K isn't on die 1, 4 (JERK), or 3 (HIKE) and is on die 2. H is on die 1 (HIKE), J on die 3 (JERK), T on die 3 (HALT), and U on die 1 (JUKE). B isn't on die 1 (CLUB), 3, or 4 (BOIL) and is on die 2, with the O in BOIL on die 1. Then S (POST) is on die 2, C is on die 3 (CLUB), and W is on die 4 (WISH). Z isn't on die 1 (ZONE), 2, or 4 (LAZY) and is on die 3, with the Y on die 1. The N in ZONE completes die 2. By elimination, both the F and V are on die 4. In sum, the letters on the four dice of Letter Dice 8 (in order of recovery) are

  • RDHUOY
  • AGKBSN
  • MIJTCZ
  • PELWFV
