This is a ten sided die (D10) in my 'Center Arc' dice series. The numbers on this die are arranged in a spindown pattern.
This means that the numbers are placed, so that consecutive numbers are next to each other. This makes it easy to find the number you are looking for when using this die to keep track of your life total in games such as Magic: the Gathering. Great care has been taken to ensure that the die is well balanced, so that rolls are fair.
This is best printed in any of the steel materials or other metals, but is also suited for strong & flexible plastic. Please note however that it will be very light in plastic. The steel version of this die weighs about 8 grams.
This is a single D10. To keep track of points or life totals from 1 to 100, you can use two of them: one to denote the 'tens' and another for the 'ones'. To make it easier to distinguish between these, there is also a version of this die available
that lists the 'tens' on its sides.
To enhance the look of the die, and to make the numbers on the die stand out more, you can do the following:
- On the metal version you can darken the recessed ares by painting the die with thinned dark acrylic paint and rubbing it on a rough cloth after the paint has dried. This will clean the paint of the heightened details, leaving them shiny and contrasting nicely with the darker lower areas.
- On the plastic version 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.
