Dice Collection

Following the life, the love, and the foibles of a
slightly compulsive
dice collector.

Hi!

Today I want to show you amazing dice made and painted by RobinRed. Robin makes Dragon & Cthulhu dice in different colors. The Cthulhu ones are available in green & grey and the Dragon ones are available in bone, gold, silver and with a custom paint like green, red or blue. The dice are made from resin & are painted with acrylic paints. Robin says they are balanced, she made tests involving 200 rolls from a dice cup filled with 4 other dice.

Have a dice day!

The next time you find yourself rolling a pair of dice, know that you’re tapping into something primordial- keeping alive an ancient tradition that began long before recorded history.Archaeologists can’t pinpoint the first human who threw dice, but they do know this: Unlike many customs that started in one place and then spread, dice-throwing appeared independently all across the populated world. The oldest known dice -dating back at least 8,000 years- consisted of found objects such as fruit pits, pebbles, and seashells. But the direct precursors of today’s dice were bone: the ankle bones of hoofed animals, such as sheep and oxen. These bones -later called astragali by the  Greeks- were chosen because they are roughly cube-shaped, with two rounded sides that couldn’t be landed on, and four flat ones that could. Which side would be facing up after a toss, or a series of tosses, was as much a gamble to our ancestors as it is to us today. I really suggest you to read this article… the full source is HERE (with credits and other links)
