## What shape is a d12?

Forms. The standard form of the d12 is a regular **dodecahedron**, which is a Platonic solid whose faces are twelve regular pentagons. The sum of the numbers on opposite faces is usually 13. A d12 shaped like a **rhombic dodecahedron**.

## What is a 100 sided die called?

Zocchihedron is the trademark of a **100**–**sided die** invented by Lou Zocchi, which debuted in 1985. Rather than being a polyhedron, it is more like a ball with **100** flattened planes. It is sometimes **called** “Zocchi’s Golfball”. Zocchihedra are designed to handle percentage rolls in games, particularly in role-playing games.

## What is a 12 sided die called?

Common variations

Faces/ Sides | Shape |
---|---|

6 | Cube |

10 | Pentagonal trapezohedron |

12 | Dodecahedron |

## What do you call a 20-sided die?

The icosahedron – **20**–**sided** polyhedron – is frequent. Most often each face of the **die** is inscribed with a number in Greek and/or Latin up to the number of faces on the polyhedron.

## Why is it called a d20?

The **d20** System is a role-playing game system published in 2000 by Wizards of the Coast, originally developed for the third edition of Dungeons & Dragons. The system is **named** after the 20-sided dice which are central to the core mechanics of many actions in the game.

## What is a 10 sided dice called?

**10 Sided** D10 **Dice**

The D10 is known as the pentagonal trapezohedron, each face is a kite and the **die** consists of two sharp corners.

## What is a 1000 sided shape called?

In geometry, a chiliagon (/ˈkɪliəɡɒn/) or **1000**-gon is a **polygon** with **1,000 sides**. Philosophers commonly refer to chiliagons to illustrate ideas about the nature and workings of thought, meaning, and mental representation.

## What is a 50 sided shape called?

In geometry, a pentacontagon or pentecontagon or **50**-gon is a fifty-**sided polygon**.

## What does icosahedron symbolize?

**Icosahedron**. The **Icosahedron** is the fifth and final platonic solid having 20 triangular sides and **symbol** for the element of water. Meaning: trust in the wisdom of the universe is needed with a willingness to allow others to assist in the situation versus pursuing an active role.

## What is the most sides on a die?

All dice are polyhedra (Greek for many-sided), but the D120 is a special variety called disdyakis triacontahedron. It features 120 **scalene** triangular faces and 62 vertices. That creates the largest number of symmetrical faces possible for an icosahedron and the biggest, most complex fair dice possible.

## Is a 10 sided die fair?

Though **10**–**sided dice** are not Platonic solids, all of their faces are the same shape and size. This means that they are as **fair** as Platonic solids in any reasonable situation.

## How large is a d20?
