# Gallery of dice types

I’m a big fan of the Dice Collection on: http://membres.lycos.fr/arjan, so I made this chart as a sort of table of contents to the different types of dice shown on that site. Who knew there are so many different types of dice with so many sides! It would be fun to try out board games with these different dices, uh, dies, uh… dice.

i don’t think there is a great need for them. Just a way for people to say they could create it.

My gosh, why do need a dice that high up? I mean, it makes good for gambling, guessing a range of number or something, but for a dice or board, I can’t see them being used. >< Nice chart though, gives me an idea of what I’m looking into.
