The evil, non-platonic d10 vs. the virtuous, platonic d20

Warning: Dice nerdery.

Does either die roll more “true” than the other? Namely, does the fact that the d10 is a bizarro shape affect how well it rolls? Or is dice technology to the point that it doesn’t matter?

Background: I have a hankering to get some old-school d20s marked 0-9 twice, but then I questioned whether there was any point to it.

  1. Each face of a d10 is equal in area, and they are symmetrically distributed, so the fact that not all the interior angles are actually congruent doesn’t matter.
