Hello friends, so on our previous post we shared with you guys about the ‘Mathsy’ dice game. So today we want to share with you a second dice game we created called ‘26PTS’.
So ‘26PTS’ is a highly anticipating dice game played by 2 players or more that aims for players to get as close as possible to 26 points without going over it.
Starting out, each player rolls 1 D20 DUO DiCE and calculates the result using the color numeric system.
After each roll of the D20 DUO DiCE, players can choose to stay with the current result or accumulate more points by rolling next with a D6 DUO DiCE. The last thing is to sum up the results together to see who’s the winner. The player who gets above 26 points will get ‘Burst’ and the player closest to 26 points win!
Let’s us breakdown on the details of the game from the 26PTS image.
Calculation no. 01
The picture on the left indicating 12 points, so this player is not the winner as this player’s points is lower than 26 points.
So how does this player gets the 12 points? Simple, the first result is 11 points from the D20 DUO DiCE. Taking 17points from the inner die (-) minus 6 from the outer die. Moving on to the 2nd result giving us 1 point from the D6 DUO DiCE, taking 3 from the inner die and (-) minus 2 from the outer die.
Calculation no. 02
The winner will be the one with the top right corner with 26 points. So this calculation is a good example of winning this game.
Let’s take a look at the result, this player win this round because he gets the max 26 points which the player gotten 20 points from the inner die and plus(+) 6 points from the outer die.
Calculation no. 03 -
Let’s take a look at the last example of the player on the bottom right. This player exceeds 26 points and goes ‘Burst’! This 30 points comes. The first result from the D20 Dice is 19 points, 16 from the inner die and plus 3 from the outer die. Combining with the D6 DUO DiCE’s 11 points, 6 points from the inner die and plus 5 points from the outer die.
So do have what it takes to risk it all in the game of 26PTS? Stay tune till the next update.

Hello guys! We want to share with you today on how you can play with DUO DiCE in an alternative way. During the DUO DiCE development, our team created a dice game that we played here as a standalone game called ‘Mathsy’.
So ‘Mathsy’ is a simple & fun speed calculation game played by 2 players or more that aims to collect the most dice in order to win.
For each round, one of the players would roll a random DUO DiCE, in order for them to get that round’s dice. The player who calls out the right answer first gets that round’s dice.
But here’s the catch, players need to mentally calculate the result derived from both the inner and outer dice using the Color numeric system.
Follow through the end till the last player that gets the last DUO DiCE.
See which player collects the most DUO DiCE win!

It's Saturday Night Football at my place where few of my friends came over to hang out and watch the game. My friend Jack was over my computer desk and said to me, "dude! your dice collection looks weird, they look different except for the cube ones used at the casinos and in board games".
A polyhedron is a three-dimensional shape with flat polygonal faces such as a cube, prism, or pyramid. On the other hand shapes like cones, spheres, and cylinders are not polyhedrons because their sides are not polygons.
Polyhedral dice is a set of dice consists of 7 different dice.
So we will breakdown for you all the 7 dice and what each dice is
So D4 is a four-sided dice, abbreviated as D4. This dice comes in the shape of a tetrahedron also known as triangular pyramid. So for the result there is only 4 outcome; 1, 2, 3 & 4.
So D6 is a six-sided dice, abbreviated as D6. This dice comes in the shape of a cube(6 square sides). There is only 6 outcome in a D6 dice 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6
So D8 is a eight-sided dice, abbreviated as D8. This dice comes in the shape of a Octahedron( is a polyhedron with eight faces). There is only 8 outcome in a D8 dice 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8
So D10 is a ten-sided dice, abbreviated as D10. This dice comes in the shape of a pentagonal trapezohedron. There is only 10 outcome in a D10 dice 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10
So D12 is a twelve-sided dice, abbreviated as D12. This dice comes in the shape of a a dodecahedron. There is only 12 outcome in a D12 dice 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 & 12
So D20 is a twenty-sided dice, abbreviated as D20. This dice comes in the shape of a a ICOSAHEDRON. There is only 20 outcome in a D20 dice 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11,12 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 18, 19 & 20
So D100 is a ten-sided dice, abbreviated as D100/D%. This dice comes in the shape of a a standard pentagonal trapezohedral shape. There is only 10 outcome in a D100 dice 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 & 100. D100 is a percentile dice
So using a D100 is interesting. For the gameplay you need to use the D100 & the D10 to roll at the same time. Let's see the example below.
For the result above is 60. When a D10 lands a 0 then the D100 die result (60) will be use.
For the result above is 88. When a D10 lands a 8 then the D100 die result lands an 80. So we add them together and both result in 88.
When we hear the word dice the image comes to mind is the 6 sided cube that we play with our favorite board games.
So the polyhedral dice is use for fantasy tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons. So each dice has its own representation of actions like strikes, battle damage, weapon or spells.
Sounds fun right? Even looking on YouTube, these players complete lost in their fantasy world and a having a great time.
So there you have it, we do hope you learn a little on the polyhedral dice and inspire you to embark your fantasy journey to role playing table top game. Till next time!
