I have noticed after several plays that I roll white side very often. I lost many figths and games as well due to this. I started to record rolls and last 5 games I rolled white side in 45-70%. I have experienced bad days in other games of course but not several plays in row. How are your rolls?

I don't have a state on my rolls but as big as the die is I wonder if it doesn't roll well (i.e. turn/spin much).

You can check out this video to learn how to test the balance of your dice.

Granted it's for a d20, but I don't see why it wouldn't work for a d6.
Then you could at least know if it's a balance issue or possibly something else like a rolling method issue as Patrick suggested.

Hmm, that does seem off.




For those not familiar with the Yggdrasil die, it has the following 6 sides, with each side having a color and # of "pips"....

# of pips color
1 = 0 white
2 = 0 white
3 = 1 blue
4 = 1 blue
5 = 2 green
6 = 3 black

I tested balance as suggested and it seems to be ok. So, I don't know...
