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!

      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 dice just today and they're great!

      I made thought of the following little game:
      - Roll your dice
      - 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.

      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!

      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.

    17. Dag Hovden on June 25, 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!

      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 Chisholm Creator 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!

      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.

      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

      @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 )

    49. Iain Pritchard on February 21, 2011

      The more people I tell about this project the more I have to pledge!!!
      Totally agree with Andrew O's comment, but why just stop at physics.

    50. Matt Chisholm Creator on February 19, 2011

      @Douglas- Fuzzy dice is a great idea! I just might do that.
