The weird dice from Dice Lab

The ochre article I posted about the d120 got me looking at the various dice offered by its creators. Very wacky, very cool. Dice Lab seems to make both unusual dice (the d60, the d120) and unusual takes on the usual dice (“skewed” d6s and d12s, “truncated” d4s and d8s, etc.). Their take on the d20 — a slight different number arrangement meant to be more “true” — is also piquing my interest.

I had no idea that there was anyone experimenting like this with dice — experimenting primarily with mathematics in mind — and I’d love to know if more creators are doing it.
