Dice - Small throwable objects with multiple resting positions, used for generating random numbers. One of the oldest traceable game pieces and earliest divination tools in history.
The earliest evidence of dice was found in an Egyptian game called Senet that was played with dice. It was played before 3000 BC and up to the 2nd century AD.
Numbers, counting, and dice have been intrinsically related throughout time.
We are proud to present ANDice.
Bringing you an ultra-modern design of dice with a truly unique historical touch!
In this first series of Ancient Numerical Dice, we have chosen The Babylon, The Mayan and The Egyptian. All the number systems used are non-alphabetic and are represented by captivating symbols and patterns.
The Babylonian cuneiform method of recording quantities is approximately 5000 years old, and it is one of the oldest numeral systems in existence.
The Mayan system was a base- 20 system (vigesimal) that used a system of bars and dots in a vertical place value system. A dot stood for one, and a bar stood for five.
The system of ancient Egyptian numerals was used in Ancient Egypt around 3000 BC until the early first millennium AD.
The ANDice are carefully constructed with zinc alloy; This gives it a nice weighty feel in the palm of your hand when you roll the dice. It will be anodized in three different coatings in order to achieve the perfect ancient look.
We have meticulously tested the probability of the dice rolling, as a result of this, the below chart has been produced.
Risks and challenges
The only risk to this project as events which are out of our control that may delay the manufacturing process. For example Machinery breakdown or insufficient manpower at the factory. However, we will work very closely with the factory to minimise these risks, and these are only stated as a worst-case scenario; in all likelihood, this is not something we should expect to encounter.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
