Product Description

Alma's dice are a set of three 4-sided dice that when rolled together produce the same distribution of sums as rolling a pair of 8-sided dice that are each labeled 1 through 8. They are similar to Sicherman dice (a pair of 6-sided dice with an alternative numbering scheme that yields the same distribution of sums as a standard pair of 6-sided dice).

 

A pair of 8-sided dice when rolled together produce the sums 2 through 16 according to a triangular distribution with a mean and median of 9.  There are 8x8 = 64 possible rolls.

 

This set of three 4-sided dice also produces the sums 2 through 16 according to a triangular distribution with a mean and median of 9.  There are 4x4x4 = 64 possible rolls.

 

Alma's dice are numbered {8, 4, 4, 0}, {5, 3, 3, 1}, and {3, 2, 2, 1}.  This is version 1, there is another version with a different numbering scheme that produces the same distribution.  See Alma's Dice Version 2.
