This is a genuine metal 1-sided die, the legendary d1. Every gamer needs 1-sided dice in their collection, to determine the outcome when there is only one option. Before one-sided dice the closest gamers could come was a d4, and then you had to roll the d4 over and over until you got a result of a one. Now with 1-sided dice there is an easy solution: one roll will quickly and efficiently let you know the result when there's only one possible option! This d1 is about twice the size of standard dice.
This metal d1 is made from stainless steel, has a nice heft and weight to it, and it spins very well. The metal 1-sided die is far superior to the plastic version, which is very light, though certainly cheaper.
The Awesome Dice metal 1-sided die is in fact a möbius strip: an object with only one side. If you put your finger on any point on the dice and trace it along the surface, you'll eventually come back to your starting point and will have touched every point on the die.
You can roll the 1-sided die by spinning it like a coin. The one-sided die has the number 1 on the surface twice on the same side (get it - because there's only one side!) and the numbers come un-inked. You can ink the number with any fine-tipped permanent marker; however, since there's only one side a cunning gamer can usually predict the outcome without seeing the numbers.
Yes, the Metal D1 is definitely balanced towards a particular result. In fact, our 1-sided dice will roll truer than any other dice in your collection. We promise it won't let you down!How do you operate it?
Operating the d1 is easy, simply flip or spin as if it were a coin.With this dice, can you travel in time à la Tony Stark?
Legend has it that it is possible, but so far no one has perfected the technique.What is on the other side?
The same side.
We bought this for my daughter who regularly DMs for her younger sibs. She loves it! She wears it on a cord around her neck and the youngers know that what she says goes. The metal isn't quite as pretty as in the picture, but that doesn't matter to us-- it is exactly what she wanted.
