Roll 2d120 and check the wound chart! evil grin

Very interesting. How well does it roll and stop on soft texture surfaces such as a war-game mat or flocked surface?

Cocked dice!

As I posted on Facebook, this is even more worthless than the D100 I bought decades ago, I rolled it once and it is still rolling…

I mean, at least a percentile dice was in use as 2d10 before, I don't think I've ever seen a need for a d120.

In the video, the d120 stops better than a d60…

Good news for Babylonian gamers.

Intriguing "everest" moment*

But stunningly counterproductive IMHO. % rolls with 2 d10: fine – been doing that for ever, but the need for 120 separate results?

A well crafted solution desperately seeking a problem.

"The d120 can be used as a dn, where n is any proper factor of 120, including all of the dice in a standard seven-dice polyset."

There you go, as 120 has factors that include 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 20, then technically the d120 is the only dice you need!

Throw out all the others and just buy these new revolutionary (only been around a few hundred years) dice.

Ps I'm off to count and number the dimples on a golf ball…

Geez, I have to go back to my "Empire" Napoleonics days to remember when I last needed percentile dice. I have no use for a D120.

I prefer "diceabetic", personally.

Dschebe for the win!
I love it!

John nailed it with, "because we can". A 'crit' on that die should end any game automatically.
