This is a larger version of my Tarmogoyf D8 die in the 'Center Arc' dice series. It can be used to keep track of the power and toughness of the Magic: the Gathering card Tarmogoyf (and similar creatures).
Please note: this version has the numbers arranged in a spindown order, which means that consecutive numbers are placed next to each other. This breaks the regular D8 pattern where the numbers on opposing sides add to 9.
The die has a height of 31 mm (1.2'') (the distance between each set of two opposing faces. This size is better suited for printing in strong & flexible plastic. For printing in metal there is a smaller version available here
. The power/toughness levels on the sides of this die are 1/2, 2/3, 3/4. 4/5, 5/6, 6/7, 7/8, 8/9. Great care has been taken to ensure that the die is well balanced, and therefore rolls should be fair.
This die is part of a larger family of dice with the same design aesthetics, which is available through my Shapeways shop
You will receive this d8 in tis blank state. To enhance the look of the die, and to make the numbers stand out more, you can color the numbers using acrylic paint and a fine brush. Because the numbers are raised above their background plane this is quite easy to do.
