The Fairest Dice Possible According to Math Have 120 Sides and an Incredibly Complex Shape


This is the d120 by the Dice Lab, and it’s “the last word on dice,” says one of the inventors. Based on a geometrical shape called an disdyakis triacontahedron — a type of polyhedron that was first described in 1865 — it pushes the limits of symmetry (which equates to fairness in the world of die tossing). Consider busting some out the next time your calculus club is in the mood to gamble.
