Dice

Putting together your own board game? If there is an element of chance to it, there's no better game piece to include than dice.

Traditionally, dice are numbered (using spots) from one to six. To get a larger range, use more dice. For example, two dice will give you two to twelve (impossible to throw a one since there is no zero on the dice). Keep in mind, however, that the probability distribution changes when you add more dice: for example, when using two dice there is only one chance out of 36 of throwing a two, whereas there is a one out of six chance of throwing a seven.
