Dice with Special Numbers

In this section we present numbered Dn dice (n=2,3,4,6,8,10,12,20,26,30) with special pips or numbers, i.e. neither 1..n nor 0..n-1.

 

 

In the remainder of this section, there are two photos for each die. The left one shows the die with the largest number on top and the next possible largest number clockwise. The right photo shows the die when it is rotated by 180 degrees along the horizontal axis which lies in parallel to the screen. In this way, the opposite faces are shown top-top, left-right and right-left.

The dice are sorted in decreasing order of the largest numbers.

D6, Non-Neg Int

In order to uniquely describe the configuration of a die, the following nomenclature was defined. We start by pacing te die such that the highest number is on top and next highest number is on the right (clockwise). This is corresponds to the left photo. The right photo shows the die when it is rotated by 180 degrees along the horizontal axis which lies in parallel to the screen. In this way, the opposite faces are shown top-top, left-right and right-left.

 

Nomenclature: The orientations of the numbers are shown in the figure below

We list the numbers in the order shown below:

As an example, let’s look at this backgammon doubling die with numbers 64,32,16,8,4, and 2. The highest number, “64”, is on top, followed by “16” clockwise (note that “16” was chosen because “32” is opposite of “64”).

64,32,16,8,4,2

64UL16D4D32LL8U2U

 

If certain numbers appear more than once, the rule above may lead to more than one solution. For this case, use the following rules to place the die:

1)    Highest number on top (position one)

2)    Next highest possible number clockwise (position two)

3)    Next highest possible number in position 3

If this is still ambiguous:

4)    Place the die such that the top number (position one) looks (in decreasing order of priority) in direction UL, UR, LR, LL

If this is still ambiguous:

5)    Place the die such that the number in position two looks (in decreasing order of priority) in direction U, R, D, L

If this is still ambiguous:

6)    Place the die such that the number in position three looks (in decreasing order of priority) in direction U, R, D, L

If this is still ambiguous, repeat steps 4) to 6) for the numbers in position 4) to 6)

 

Example: The following die is numbered 4,4,4,4,0,0. The two 0s are on opposite faces, hence there is no angle from where 3 4s can be seen. Hence the die is rotated such that 2 4s are on top and to the right (rules 1-2). Then a 0 is on the left. Find a rotation that the top 4 points to UL (rule). There are two possible orientations for the second 4: L and R. Choose R, as this has higher priority (rule)

Backgammon Doubling Dice

There are surprisingly many configurations of D6 Backgammon doubling dice. Most “normal” (1..6) D6 are numbered such that opposite faces sum to 7. An analogy for doubling dice would be to print the numbers such that opposite faces multiply to 128 (64x2, 32x4, 16x8). However there are only few such doubling dice in my. Most of the dice use a numbering scheme 64-32, 16-8, 4-2.

 

64-2, 32-4, 16-8, 64/32/16

If the die is placed such that “64” is on top and “32” on the right, the third number that can be seen is “16”.
