On this day in Dice History


I purchased these casino dice on October 24, 2010, having been told that perfectly square corners of the dice generate a truer dice roll. I suppose that I took that to mean that I’d roll fewer Snake Eyes and more Box Cars when I used these dice. Of course the math of probability tells us that one has a 1/6th chance of hitting on any particular number.

I have to say that these large square cornered dice performed well in their first two matches, but after that, not so well.

At least they look nice.
