Welcome to SP Dice: Dice From India
Welcome to SP Dice: Dice from India. We are offering 3 types of wooden dice with brass inlays, as well as 4 different wooden boxes to protect and transport your dice.
The first dice is a standard 16mm square dice. The second is a slightly larger 20mm square dice, and finally a modern version of the Indian Pasaka dice. Like a normal dice, the Indian dice has 6 sides, but in a hexagon shape keeping the odds identical to a square dice.
Hi I'm Paul Mandaiker, and I'm really excited to bring these Indian dice to all of you with Sid Mandaiker. Tabletop games have always been the bonding agent for my family. Some of my fondest memories are learning, discovering and playing all sorts of table top games with my grandfather.
Hi, I'm Sid a passionate game designer, and like Paul tabletop games have played a huge role in my life. Discovering tabletop games and the equipment that goes with it is where my interest really lies as well as designing both tabletop games and video games .
The Lore behind the Indian Dice
Dice games have played a very important role in ancient Indian mythology. In the epic Mahabharata, matters of great importance such as who ruled over which kingdom and who served whom were settled over a game of dice. Nala for instance, received the great secret of the dice from Rtuparna, which allowed him to win back his kingdom. But arguably the most important dice game is described as a definitive moment in the Mahabharata Saga: the ordeal of Draupadi. After loosing not only his land but also his treasures, his brothers and even himself, Yudhisthira stakes Draupadi, the most beautiful woman of her time, in a fateful game of dice against Duryodhana.
SP Dice would like to offer you a modern version of the ancient and unique Pasaka dice and bring you closer to the legends of ancient Indian history. Get your very own Pasaka dice by pledging for our project.
Traditional Indian Pasaka Dice have only 4 sides and come in pairs. Each dice is numbered 0, 1, 2, 3 and must be rolled 2 at a time, the sum of both dice gives you the number. This means that the highest number can be six but the lowest number can be 0. However the traditional pasaka dice have different odds. All Pledges above 40 Euros will get a free pair of Traditional Indian metal Pasaka Dice.
