This is a larger spindown
version of the D20 die in my 'Twined' series. The measurement of 32 mm (1.26 '') is the distance between each set of two opposing faces, or the height of the die when it is lying on a flat surface. The larger size compared to the regular version (which you can find here
), makes it especially suited as a life counter for CCG's such as Magic: the Gathering, and makes the numbers easier to read. This size works very well when printed in strong & flexible plastic.
The numbers on the die are arranged in a spindown pattern, which makes it easier to keep track of your life total in games. Because of this, the numbers on opposing sides of the die do not add up to 21. If you are looking for a this same design but with a traditional ordering of the numbers, please check the link below. Even though the arrangement of the numbers is not standard, great care has been taken to ensure that the die is fair and well balanced, and therefore throws should not be biased.
To make the numbers on the die stand out more, you can color them using acrylic paint and a fine brush. Because the numbers are raised above their background plane this is quite easy to do. See the pictures for an example of this effect.
