What are dice for board games?

Dice are small, portable objects that are used to generate random numbers for a variety of purposes, including tabletop games, board games, role-playing games, and wargames. Sets of dice can be sold in customized packs or collections for each type of board game.

Some common types include:

  • Six-sided (also known as d6): These are more common and are used in almost all board games almost as a standard. They have six sides, with the numbers 1 to 6 on each side. They can be either dots or numbers.
  • Four-sided (d4): These have four sides and were first used in Dungeon and Dragons, now they are used in many others.
  • Eight-sided (d8): These have eight sides and are used in some board and role-playing games.
  • Ten-sided (d10): These have ten sides and are used to generate percentages or special abilities, with the numbers 0-9 on each side.
  • Twelve-sided (d12): These have twelve sides and along with the D6, D10, and D20 would be among the most popular.
  • Twenty-sided (d20): These have twenty sides and are used in many boards and role-playing games to determine the success or failure of actions.
  • Hundred-sided (d100): These have one hundred sides and are very rare, so their use is really infrequent. They are usually used to determine the success or failure of certain high-numbered values such as percentages or some kind of action.

Board game sets may contain any combination of shapes and types of numbers, depending on the needs of the game being played. Some board games may include only a few, while others may contain many different types.

In addition to traditional dice, there are also others with special features, such as symbols instead of numbers, various colors, and engraved designs. These types can add an element of variety and interest to board games, role-playing games, and wargames.

Why dice are important in wargames?

Dice are important in wargames because they provide a way for players to randomly determine the outcome of certain events or actions in the game. This adds an element of chance and unpredictability to the game, which can make it more exciting and challenging.

For example, in a wargame, they might be used to determine the success or failure of an attack, the effect of a special ability, or the damage dealt by a weapon. Their use helps to create a sense of realism and uncertainty, as in real life, the outcome of many events can be influenced by chance.

In addition, they can be used to help balance the game by introducing an element of chance that can even out the playing field between players of different skill levels. This can help to make the game more enjoyable for all players, as it allows for a more level playing field and reduces the impact of player skill on the outcome of the game.

Overall, they are an important aspect of wargames and help to add depth, excitement, and unpredictability to the gameplay experience.

  • Plastic: Plastic is a popular material for making them because it is relatively inexpensive, durable, and easy to mold into various shapes. They are widely available and can be found in a variety of colors and styles.
  • Metal: are more expensive than plastic ones, but they are also more durable and have a higher quality feel. They can be made from a variety of metals, including brass, copper, and aluminum. They are typically heavier than plastic ones and have a satisfying heft when rolled.
  • Wood:  are another option for those who prefer a more natural or rustic look they can be made of a large variety of different types of wood, and they can be finished with a variety of stains and finishes to achieve the desired look. These types are generally more expensive than plastic or metal versions and may be more prone to damage if not handled carefully.
