20 Sided Dice
The d20 is a platonic solid known as the icosahedron. The d20 is the most popular and iconic die in the D&D dice set. In fact, it is often used as the symbol of role-playing games in general. After the d6, it is the second most popular die sold. Though D&D requires only one d20 to be rolled at any given time, many RPG players prefer to have a wide selection of d20 on hand for different characters, different situations, advantage/disadvantage rolls, and more.
The Oldest Twenty-Sided Die
The oldest d20 on record is from Egypt and dated to 300 BC. An ancient roman twenty-sided die dated to 100 AC sold at auction for nearly $18,000 in 2003. Despite the longevity of human understanding regarding platonic solids, the d20 was officially patented by the Tokyo Shibaura Electric Company in 1950. The first d20s ever released for D&D were numbered 0 - 9 twice. 🤷♂️
