    I have an old bag of dice. There are 11 of them. The lowest number I can roll with them is an 11.

    The highest number I can roll with them is a 116.

    None of my dice are 6 sided dice... can you figure out what dice I have?

    How about 10 8-sided and one 36-sided?

    Are your dice all (approximately) regular polyhedra? If so, then these are the 18 possibilities I think, expressed as number of d20s,d12,d8s,d4s:

    4,1,0,6
    4,0,2,5
    3,3,0,5
    3,2,2,4
    3,1,4,3
    3,0,6,2
    2,5,0,4
    2,4,2,3
    2,3,4,2
    2,2,6,1
    2,1,8,0
    1,7,0,3
    1,6,2,2
    1,5,4,1
    1,4,6,0
    0,9,0,2
    0,8,2,1
    0,7,4,0

    d4
    d8
    d10 (percentile dice!)
    d12
    d20
