‘Roll D120 to Save Against…’ Wait — What?

d120-colorsMeet the D120! That’s right, it’s a 120-sided die, and it could be the answer to all your tabletop RPG needs. It certainly is the largest die I’ve ever seen and, according to the inventor, it’s the largest anyone ever will see!

Made by The Dice Lab, each of the 120 faces is an elongated triangle, and features the most faces possible “on a mathematically fair die.” I don’t get math — I agree with Barbie: “Math is hard!” — so I figure there must be something about die with more sides that causes them to roll unfairly or something.

If there’s any doubt about what was rolled, simply spin the die in place; the uppermost number is the one that doesn’t move.

This video explains it all (including the complicated math):

The opposite faces add up to 121, and the numbering has been calculated for “perfect numerical balance” all around the die — meaning the numbers are spread evenly, so big numbers aren’t clumped together.

You can get D120 (as well as other iterations of gaming dice) from The Dice Lab’s merch page for $12 each or five for $50.

A Game You Can’t Refuse: Godfather Monopoly

“The negotiator’s at my house playing pinochle with some of my men, he’s happy. They’re letting him win.”
— Clemenza

Pinochle is so last century. Get your crew to heist obtain a copy of the new Godfather Monopoly game. A big spender like you can afford $39.99.

Hasbro has been licensing themed editions of Monopoly for decades, but every once in a while a special release comes along that seems irresistible. Here’s a version that pays tribute to the 40th anniversary of one of the greatest movies of all time (for my money, the greatest of all time), The Godfather.
