## How do you read a dice?

Throw the dice in a way that they fall more or less in a line. The die to the left is the past; an odd number means the history of the situation was negative, and an even number indicates the history was positive.

## How does a d10 dice work?

Ten-sided dice, often sold in pairs (the two are different colors), are most commonly used to roll percentile values — that is, the two dice are rolled together, and **the result read by multiplying one previously designated die as ten times its reading, and adding the other’s reading**. This gives a result from 00 to 99.

## What can I use for D3 dice?

You can use any other die with sides divisible by your target die size (so you can use a **d6** both as a d3 and d2 safely, for example).

## How do you read dice rolls?

The first die represents the tens digit, and the second die the ones digit. For example, a roll of 1 followed by a roll of 5 will give a total of 15, while a roll of 3 followed by a roll of 6 will give a total of 36. The average result of the D66 is 38.5, and the standard deviation about 17.16.

## How do you count in d10?

It’s a **10**. The die is a d10, and when such a die is rolled, the 0 is usually read as a 10. Some RPGs use it as a 0-9, but that’s more of the exception rather than the rule. The only time a 0 on a d10 is read as a 0 is when it’s rolled as a pair of d10s to get a d100, or percentile dice, where a “00” is 100.

## Why does d10 have a zero?

The one with two digits is just telling you the tens digit, and the one with one digit is the ones digit. If you’re rolling only that die with 0, 10, 20, etc., then a 10 = a 1 and the 00 = a 10. 0 or 00 on a **d10 just means the highest number**.

## What is a d10 dice?

The 10 sided dice we use in gaming is a pentagonal trapezohedron and is typically numbered 1-0, with the 0 representing ten. The d10 is **a part of the traditional 7-dice set**, but gained prominence with the launch of the World of Darkness games in the 90s, which used ten-sided dice exclusively for all rolls.
