MadMath: When Dice Fail

If you're interested in the dice-testing procedures that we've considered on this blog, hop on over to my math blog to see the first case of dice that actually failed the chi-square test that I've found to date. Before you do: Can you spot anything wrong with the dice below?


  1. the two 6s lie nicely next to each other, just like the two 2s, 4s, and 5s. the 4 3s and 3 1s lie in an equally interesting pattern: 3-1-3-1-3-1-3

    but i am not sure if that is what you were after ...

  2. giant 1 pips shift the center of gravity away from the "1" side.

  3. Good dice for Warhammer leadership tests or Axis and Allies
