Decahedral dice?

Submitted by Matthew Tiller on Wed, 2013-04-17 13:09.

I’d like to know where to get 10-sided dice – regular decahedrons are an impossibility!

There’s a germ of a useful game here if you make the students use only the digits 1-6, or use 12-sided dice and maybe discount rolls of 11 or 12.

Hi Matthew
My favourite supplier of dice (including 10 sided ones) is an Ebay shop. See our link here:
