My dice collection: another installment

I think we’re way overdue.

A further exploration of my dice collection (I think these posts are the most interesting ones on here)

First some d6 dice. You can see that at the back there is a very big die. And at the front there is a very little one.

Look at the different sizes

Now the next dice are my Japanese dice. They were all bought on my trip to Tokyo.From a Japanese pen and paper roleplaying shop found in the depths of Akihabara.Pen and paper roleplaying is truely international!

これらのサイコロを転がし

And, on a serious note, while we are talking about inclusion and roleplaying, I have a die I am particularly proud of. If you look, you will notice that instead of numbers in the usual script, it has numbers written in sign language. This means that roleplayers who are hard of hearing need no longer be, or feel, excluded. They too can join in and game.

No-one need feel excluded

My dice collection continued at last: Gamescience leads the way

Many, many apologies. In particular to those who may have been holding their breath and so have, by now, passed away since I promised to show you all, as an avid table-top roleplayer, my dice collection back in August.

Anyway, for the survivors and for those joining since then; here at long last, is the first part.

I thought I would start with examples of the creme de la creme of dice technology; my Gamescience dice. These dice are precision tested with razor-sharped edges to reduce biassed rolling. I couldn’t even begin to explain the science behind them, so I shall let that duty fall to Colonel Louis Zocchi himself, their creator and developer.

and Part 2

I have a number of these dice and for accuracy they have never let me down. And they look nice too.
