## How does dice work in DND?

One die (designated before you roll) gives the tens digit, and the other gives the ones digit. If you roll a 7 and a 1, for example, the number rolled is 71. Two 0s represent 100. Some ten-sided dice are numbered in tens (00, 10, 20, and so on), making it easier to distinguish the tens digit from the ones digit.

## Why does DND use so many dice?

Different weapons and spells also use different types of dice for damage, such as a d4 for daggers.

## How do you play dice?

Each player rolls two dice and writes the highest value number that you can make with the two numbers on the dice. For instance, if a player rolls a 6 and a 1, they would write “61”. The next player rolls the dice and tries to beat that number. The player with the highest number on a round, scores a point.

## How are DND dice rolls calculated?

Another option for finding the average dice roll is to add all of the possible outcomes together then divide by the number of sides the die has. For example, to find the average dice roll of 1d4 you would add 1, 2, 3, and 4 together and divide by 4. You would come out with 2.5.
