A rhombicuboctahedron has twenty-six sides. The number of letters in the English and Interlingua alphabets, if capital letters are not distinguished from lowercase letters. No team in the NBA or NFL has retired the number. The total number of cases on Deal or No Deal.
In a normal deck of cards, there are 26 red cards and 26 black cards. The “joke throw” in the game of darts, where a player throws 20, 5 and 1 when aiming for 20 (or treble 20).
