The actual dice may differ in colour and shape from those shown above. See the illustrations on the left and detailed product description below.



These dice, invented by Colonel George Sicherman, have the same probability of rolling a given sum as a pair of standard six-sided dice, but they are numbered differently: one has sides 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8; the other has sides 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4.

With a normal pair of six-sided dice, the probability of throwing a 2 is 1/36, the probability of throwing a 3 is 2/36, the probability of throwing a 7 is 6/36, and the probability of throwing a 12 is 1/36. Every possible score has a certain probability.

Sicherman Dice are the only other pair of dice (using positive integers) which will replicate these probabilities, ie they also have a 1/36 probability of throwing a 2, a 2/36 probability of throwing a 3, etc.

However, the odds of throwing a double are not the same as with ordinary dice.
Colour choice : blue, red, or green
