Let us begin with an agreement. A d6 is a cubical object with the sides identified by the numbers 1 through 6. The 1 side is opposite the 6 side, the 2 side is opposite the 5 side, and the 3 side is opposite the 4 side. If we know which side is 1, which side is 2, and which side is 3, we have the values of all the sides.

It turns out, there are two possible d6 configurations.

is the right-handed die, and

is the left-handed die.

The vast majority of d6 found are of the right-handed variety. Apart from a set of specialty dice, every d6 I can recall has been right-handed. I had thought about the chirality of dice before, but never had a game I could go to and say, "See! They are real."

Yesterday that changed.

Zombicide season two comes with 6 red left-handed dice. I haven't played/seen the dice from season one, so I am not sure if they are lefties.

As the expansion, it's no surprise that this also has 6 red lefties.

I had a guide, a Bedouin man, who called me 'Abu el Banat'. And whenever we'd meet another Bedouin, he'd introduce me as Abu el Banat. And the Bedouin would laugh and laugh and offer me a pint of beer. (cont below)

And I'd go to pay them for the beer and they wouldn't let me. "Abu el Banat" means "Father of daughters." They thought the beer was the least they could do.

The dice in Defenders are left handed.

The artwork depicts both right-handed and left-handed dice, but the dice I rolled in the copy I played were all left-handed.
