I love letters. When I received the Typo die I was super excited; after hearing the stories:  how long it takes for this to be physically made, and that Tim had wanted this die since the beginning, it made having this one all the more special. 

I had looked at this die for a few days trying to figure out what kind of card to make with it.  Letters make words, simple right?  What do you write, when you can write anything (and everything)?  As I sat staring at the letters I realized that there was an octothorp and no numbers. (If, the realization - at any point – had included that there must be a Typo Uppercase, including numbers, this never would have happened.)  Octothorp (#) without Numbers (#) equals Hashtag (#).  #idea
