While most tabletop games use standard 6-sided dice, there are some games which require a range of specially-sided dice, such as 4-sided, 8-sided or even 100-sided dice!
A standard form for abbreviating these different types of dice is by using the notation 'dX' where 'd' refers to a die(singular) or dice(plural), and 'X' represents the number of sides. A 6-sided die would be referred to as d6 or a 10-sided die as d10. Furthermore, where a number of dice are required it is notated as 'Xd', where 'X' is the number of dice to roll. So for example, a D&D player who was rolling a strength score for a new character would need to roll 3d6, or three(3) 6-sided dice.
DnD Dice Roller allows all types of dice rolls required by D&D and most other tabletop games, as per the table below.
|2-sided die||Any two-faced object could be used but typically a coin toss is sufficient when a d2 is required.|
|3-sided die||A theoretical die only. Some tabletop games require a d3 roll, but this is usually accomplished by rolling a d6 and halving the result.|
|4-sided die||A tetrahedron, or a 3-sided pyramid shape. The simplest three-dimensional shape that can be accomplished for dice-rolling purposes.|
|6-sided die||Classic and most typical type of die. Used by most tabletop games.|
|8-sided die||An octahedron. Looks like two four-sided pyramids pressed together at the base.|
|10-sided die||A decahedron. Similar in appearance to the d8, but in this case two pentagonal pyramids with bases pressed together.|
|12-sided die||A dodecahedron. This die is starting to look less like a die and more like a ball. Twelve pentagonal faces combine to form this multi-sided die.|
|20-sided die||An icosahedron, or twenty-sided shape. If you thought the d12 looked ball-like, this one is a step closer. Made up of twenty triangular-shaped faces.|
|100-sided die||The mighty hectohedron. Not really a die, the 'Zocchihedron' is a ball with a hundred flattened faces. Most players roll 2d10 instead, where two dice become the 1's and 10's places, with two 10's (often represented as '00') being 100.|
There can be many different dice types, numbers and combations required to play a game. Part of the fun of playing is having a personal collection of dice. But sometimes there are roll requirements that become difficult and time-consuming when performed with physical dice. DnD Dice Roller can help when the dice rolls get too large or to save time during preparation and gameplay.
