Strictly speaking, this is not a game design topic, but theres a reason for me to post it here.

A few months back, someone posted a video, showing a guy talking about dice. Namely the quality of dice. He showed some D20 dice taken from Dungeon & Dragons, which were stacked to show how uneven and poor quality they were.

I'm fairly certain that I encountered the link here on the geek. I am almost certain it was here in the boardgame design forum (but I could be wrong)

Can anyone remember where? I've searched for it, but with no luck. 20 Gg reward for the first to give me a link. :-)

So why did you want the video? Did you need to settle a bet?

Someone was asking where to get a set of quality dice, he could use for his various boardgames. I remembered this video, and wanted to throw him that link.

Or come to GameCon Memphis in October and talk to him directly (and even buy some of his dice).

I ordered some Gamescience dice after watching those videos last year. My girls had fun helping me color in the numbers - I got white and black dice, so used black and white crayons to color in. They had fun with it.

And my players absolutely hate it when I run D&D4E because my dice that always rolled pretty poorly are gone. I feel like there has been an increase in the randomness with a greater spread. At least I'm not rolling 1's all the time now.
