What Do Your Dice Say About You - Case #5

What do your dice say about you?
Case #5
All gamers will be kept nameless to protect the innocent. We're examining the dice that gamers bring to the table to see what we can learn about the gamer merely by looking at his or her dice.

Case #5 is perhaps the most curious. Take a moment to examine the contents of this box.

First, the box itself. It appears to be a repurposed storage container that may have originally been used in a workshop or garage, perhaps for nuts and bolts or for fishing lures. I'd expect this gamer to have plenty of interests in activities other than gaming. The compartmentalized nature of the box suggests that this gamer likes things to be neat and orderly. Still, looking at the contents it appears that this gamer may be too busy with his life to take the reorganize his gaming box. 

Some of the contents of this box actually have me stumped. What are the green, yellow, orange, and purple rubber band thingies? Are those cotton balls? The orange ends look like they would fit onto the end of a rod or something. I'd imagine this is the type of guy who can find a second purpose for anything and never throws anything away. Why else would you lug around all of that stuff you don't need?

There are a variety of gaming counters I can't identify but they tell me that this gamer has a wide range of games he likes to play. This gamer has been gaming for a long time and has slowly accumulated gaming pieces and dice throughout the years. The inclusion of specialty dice tells me that this gamer has some favorite games that he likes to play. The colored bead tokens tell me that this gamer is more than willing to use his imagination in a game - a token is as good as a painted miniature to this guy. I'd imagine that this gamer would have no problem lending you dice. He probably doesn't even notice when he loses one or picks one up from a fellow gamer by accident.
