Welcome to Librarium Online!
Every feel that your gaming dice roll more 1's than they statistically should? Well if you're answer was yes, you would be correct. Read the link to find out why.
DakkaDakka - Articles - That's How I Roll - A Scientific Analysis of Dice
Very interesting stuff... though my dice are the GW ones with the Aquila instead of the 1... so what the heck does that mean for me?!?!
Good find and an interesting read though!
I roll 50% 1's so thats great news for me.
I have a sinking feeling that I'm going to cry after I finish reading this.
This is old news, it was on this forum about a year ago...
analyise this and analyse that were great moves. I splelt that wrong. twice. I even spelled spelled wrong. I also said move instead of movies.
Lol - of course pips make a difference - the paint may be the same weight as platic removed, but the centripetal (note that this is the correct term, not centrifugal, as the force is pulling inwards...) effects are much greater on a spinning object! - the side with the one has a higher moment, and as the dice have no corners, there is much less o stop them rolling over according to the centripetal effects. I think I might well go and but loads of Vegas dice.
Damn, thats pretty interesting.
I've posted this before, but it's still relevant:
I guess this "research" is an interesting way to waste one's time, but I can't see much else point to it. Though, I wonder if the author works for a casino dice manufacturer...
+edit+ The original Warseer post and the discussion about allowing only certain types of dice in tournament is hilarious.

Hmmm a good alternative to using dice is a computer based RNG
