My Name is Kevin Cook.

I am currently the official Guiness World Record holder for the Largest Collection of Dice

I am starting this thread as a general discussion about dice

I can also answer questions about dice should you have any

Many thanks to MoonHunter for setting me straight as to how and where to post this thread

Those of us who played table top games use dice. Having been in gaming since the begining, I have seen a plethora of strange dice and spinners. A favorite of mine was a spool like arrangement that you spun to get random numbers.  What does the strangest dice you have seen look like?

We now return to our regularly scheduled thread, now on track

As I have so many dice it is hard to say which is the strangest ... I personally dont consider any to be strange ... just non mainstream

I think that some of the ones I have designed are the most 'off the beaten path' ... then again there are some production ones that are quite odd  

Example:

TRIAKIS TETRAHEDRAL d6

or the

Gamescience D5

What kind of dice is the most mainstream? Do you have codes for the different dices or do they all have names? If not, then how do you identify them?

The most mainstream will always be the Cubic Six Sided Die (see below)

Most Role Playing Games (RPG's) or War Games use the standard polyhedral dice shown here

Tetrahedral four sided die (d4)
Cubic six sided die (d6)
Octhedral eight sided die ( d8 )
Pentagonal Deltahedra like ten sided die (d10)
Dodecahedral twelve sided die (d12)
Icosahedral twenty sided die (d20)

If you are not interested in new or rare dice that were inventoried this month ... Ignore this post

Here are the highlights of the dice added in February 2005

Skull Shaped D5
Werewolf: The Forsaken Dice from White Wolf
Blue d20 Countdown D20 from Toy Vault

I added several wooden dice from Germany but have yet been able to identify them

The 'Information about Dice' section underwent a reorganization this month due to the adding of the Articles about Dice (menu became too cluttered)

Several THEMES were updated as a result of adding new dice

As always ... If you have any dice questions ... post them to this thread and I will try to answer them for you

Is it me or is this self-advertisement getting a little old?

This is on the edge of being an advertisement which, as you well know, I vehemently abhor on my site and usually ruthlessly purge immediately.

This, however, has just enough hint of content appropriate to the site to keep me from deleting the entire thread, although I have been tempted to lock it every time there is a new post.

Maybe I just don't get it.

Any thoughts on this thread?

The level of interest is so blasé that a decision couldn't be made on whether to close it or not. So, in the spirit of a free web and disinterest, feel free to continue to place your 'updates' as long as you want.

If you are not interested in new or rare dice that were inventoried this month ... Ignore this post

Here are the highlights of the dice added in OCTOBER 2005

DICE OF PARTICULAR NOTE:
========================

THIS SET is probably the oldest set of plastic d20's ever made

THIS ARTICLE (Page 9) states

"This can be demonstrated with random combinations of the variables R, Y & B
in Table 1.1. These single-digit numbers in the range 0-9 were generated
by throwing twenty-faced icosahedron coloured dice (red, yellow and blue)
with the numbers zero to nine engraved twice on each die. The dice were
invented in the 1950/60 period by Mr Yasushi ISHIDA and patented by Tokyo-
Shibaura Electric Company. They were marketed and distributed by the
Japanese Standards Association for demonstrating the principles of
statistical quality control."

A new company ... Cave Badger is hand making custom d20's
... I will have more by next months update and will have a page devoted to their dice

THESE DICE by Bear Cub Machine are the smallest metal dice I have ever seen
... They are in the process of making dice about 1/2 this size ... and will be able to make the claim of having made the worlds smallest dice

New Mage the Awakenening Dice from White Wolf were released this month

As Role Players ... we use dice (unless you are playing something like Amber the diceless RPG) ...

This thread is here to discuss any questions about dice ... should anyone have them

Where can you acquire a certain type of die ? ...

What is a type of die used for ?

And so forth are the types of questions for this thread

Also ... Monthly I publish a list of new and/or interesting dice that I have added to my inventory that month ... this allows people to see new dice as they are released
