In my recent campaign, I had a handout for the players. I took it out, and on a whim, I thought « a handout is boring ».
I tore it into quarters in front of their eyes. I wrote on back of the handout pieces “5“, “10“, “15“, “20“. “Make me an investigation check,” I intoned in my best DM voice. “I will grant you any pieces under your roll.“
They got 23, so I gave them all four scraps. They taped it back together and got the whole handout.
And they remembered that handout. They told players in other campaigns about the handout.
