The 120-Sided Die Is Now A Reality

120 sided die

When French-Belgian mathematician Eugéne Catalan came up with the concept of the disdyakis triacontahedron or 120-sided die over 150 years ago, it was, in theory, the most mathematically fair die possible.

Catalan’s theory has become a reality thanks to the talents and efforts of Robert Fathauer, Robert Bosch, and Henry Segerman who have created the first actual D120. Luckily for dice fans, they’ve started The Dice Lab to make it available.

They also made a video about the D120 and the mathematical magic behind it, which you can watch below.
