## Mathematician's Dice

Rather than the boring numbers 1 to 6, these dice have the six most important numbers in mathematics on them — i, 0, 1, φ, e and π!

Matt,

Are you considering comming up with an operations dice? How about one with more than 6 faces, with the basic operations (+, -, *, /), integrals, derivatives, exponentials, ...

Cheers!

My dice arrived today in Perth, Australia, absolutely thrilled with them!
Now just to find some nerdy friends to rope into games...

Matt:
Thank you! I look forward to receiving my errant dice. Incidentally, the single dice that did arrive looks great!

5. ### Jun Xian Leong on June 29, 2011

Dude, imagine playing DnD with these dice.
I can almost see it now...

"I cast Fireball and do 10d6 points of fire damage to all creatures within 10 yards.
Goblin Archer takes 2π+2e+3i+1 points of fire damage.
Goblin Archer is killed."

GLORIOUS.

Got my dice today in Malaysia, halfway across the world. They are pretty darn awesome ;)

7. ### Morris Umali on June 29, 2011

Got my 6 dice today. Sydney, Australia.
Very happy :)

8. ### Venyo on June 29, 2011

Got my dice just today and they're great!

I made thought of the following little game:
- Try to make up an equation with (+,-,*,/,^) and the rolled dice
- If necessary reroll some of the dice.

The goal is to reroll as few times as possible. ("Penalty" for rerolling could possibly form a drinking game ;))

@Jay Archambault: So sorry; I just checked the backer report from Kickstarter, and somehow you're listed as having paid \$10 but in the section for people who only wanted one die. Don't know how that could have happened, but I'll put another die in the mail for you right away. (Even though I am sold out, I kept a handful just in case something like this happened.)

10. ### Jay Archambault on June 28, 2011

I received 1 dice today... but I paid for 2.
--Disappointed

11. ### Emily Tatlow on June 28, 2011

Mine arrived in the post yesterday. They look fab!

12. ### Johan Vandersmissen on June 28, 2011

Hi there. Got the dice in good order over here in Belgium! We might not have a federal government more then 1 year after our elections, but postal services still work!

13. ### Jim Hitch on June 27, 2011

Four dice arrived today in Hackney, London, UK. Two for me and the others for as yet unspecified friends. Very happy. They are great. My first kickstarter.

14. ### Federico Hernandez on June 27, 2011

16. ### David Main on June 25, 2011

Just got my dice today over in England and they look great. A nice addition to my growing collection of dice. I will find some reason for using them in rpgs.

Hey Matt!
Just got my mDice today. I love them. Gotta think up a suitably geeky math game to play with them!

30. ### Marc Kevin Hall Superbacker on June 16, 2011

I received mine today, and they are as great as I'd hoped. I missed my friend's birthday by one day (it was yesterday), but she's already used to me being late with gifts.

Thanks!

31. ### C3 Superbacker on June 16, 2011

Just got mine! They turned out great, thanks!

Anyone made up some cool new dice games for 'em yet???

32. ### Jake Liscom on June 16, 2011

Thank you very much.

33. ### michael campbell on May 3, 2011

With the updates, I think it would be very interesting to see where and how many miles these dice have traveled from "birth" to delivery.

34. ### Pia Massie on March 19, 2011

Hi Matt - I am a backer and I just wanted to make sure you had my address for delivery - THANKS !
It is 31-1480 Arbutus St. Van. BC V6J 3W8 Canada. Looking forward to rolling some of your very clever Mathematician's Dice. Congratulations on wildly surpassing your goal.

35. ### Matt ChisholmCreator on March 4, 2011

Horace (and others who didn't get in on this project on time): I'll be selling these dice after all the Kickstarter backers have received their dice. You can sign up at http://glyphobet.net/store/dice/ and you'll get an email when they're available for sale.

36. ### Horace Nelson on March 3, 2011

Are these for sale somewhere? I NEED them. NEEEED!

37. ### nicole c. on February 25, 2011

Btw, this is my very FIRST Kickstarter backing. Thanks for hooking me in!

38. ### nicole c. on February 25, 2011

SO excited to give these to my husband. He's gonna flip!

39. ### Heli Heartland on February 25, 2011

Yes couldn't submit the address form until put a number on the last field.

40. ### Benjamin Davis on February 25, 2011

Details: Go!

Turns out you DO need to put something in that last field. It won't allow submission without.

41. ### Simon Aspinall on February 23, 2011

Whew, I got my pledge in just in time! Great idea!

42. ### Chris Guerin Superbacker on February 23, 2011

I'm just interested as to what the postage will be on these die.

Mainly because I live in Australia.

43. ### Johnny Tam on February 22, 2011

I don't know if you have any other ideas for themed dice, and if so, you've probably already considered this, but multi-sided die open up possibilities for other symbols, constants, etc. If you continue with this idea, what areas/subjects would you take the dice?

Or is this just a side thing you thought would be neat and have no plans to carry further?

44. ### Cat Mihos on February 22, 2011

what a lovely project you've put out there, and we got in just under the wire--
many congrats on the terrific showing, Matt.
it does take time to package and ship all the incentives, having done a partial ship on The Price project- so take a deep breath and take it as it comes--don't panic!
best, Cat

45. ### Christian Skorik on February 22, 2011

Will you reach 10x your funding goal in the last 27 hours? Maybe.

46. ### Venyo on February 21, 2011

Seems to work now... I'm looking forward to get my dice! :)

47. ### Venyo on February 21, 2011

@Matt Chisholm I can't send money via amazon because i'm not in the US.
Would you sell me some (~10) anyways? I'd pay via paypal/bank transfer.

48. ### Emanuele Biasiol on February 21, 2011

cool! Actually, my frist pledge. And I'm very happy of it! (even tought I do the Liceo Classico, a school where we study math just 3 hrs a week :P )
