To clarify off the bat, these are what I mean by crooked dice:

Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone knows if these have been tested anywhere to see if they're actually like....usable in games, or if they're too lopsided to be fair.

The shape will definitely change the odds but if everyone has to use them, its fair.

They are not remotely fair. They are just a novelty. (I have 1-2 around somewhere.)

I have a pair of the red and of the black that I picked up to pimp out one of my upcoming horror themed board games. They appear to roll as the advertising says, the same as regular dice with the same number frequencies, but I have not set down and actually tested them. They definitely will attract attention, I may need to get some more!

Awesome, thanks for all the input I actually just got one and haven't had time to really mess with it, so I figured I'd ask a bit before hand. What I can gather just from looking though, 1 seems like it would be hard to roll, since the 6 side is the smallest, so there may be a game in trying to roll low with it, or even using it as some weird thing for a D&D Random Event trigger.
