"Infinite" sets of dice[edit]

I don't think disphenoids can be described as an infinite set, since surely they are all the same shape but with different dimensions. Bipyramids and similar sets clearly are infinite sets, since even though they have different dimensions they also have different numbers of faces.

It seems disphenoids can be inscribed in a rectangular box with a square base. The height of the box, relative to the side of the base, is a shape parameter - not merely a dimension. So I've undone your edit. PS: See image at Disphenoid.-- (talk) 19:30, 5 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Uncommon odd-numbered dice[edit]

There seems to be little mention of less commonly manufactured dice in higher odd-numbered ranges, such as these dice. They are uncommon, seemingly existing for novelty, but many of them are not described or listed on the page, and deserve, IMO, mention due to their rarity and the unique challenges of making odd-numbered dice.

Those are covered in the "Rarer variations" subsection, as they're just versions of many of those dice with more rounded edges. oknazevad (talk) 03:08, 10 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dice (Die) Probability 1-out-of-6[edit]

I tweaked... They are used for generating seemingly random numbers (probability)... When thrown or rolled, the die comes to rest showing a 1-out-of-6 probability. 2601:582:C480:BCD0:BC4A:2142:18E9:523F (talk) 13:50, 4 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

References to the dice found at the Burnt City[edit]

As has been stated in other forums, both on Wikipedia and elsewhere on the interwebs, the claim/dating of the dice found in the Burnt city, also known as Shahr-i Sokhta, is not supported and is controversial in nature. The citations used in this article also do not support this claim. It should either be removed from the article entirely or it should be flagged as an unverified claim. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Highest Voltage (talkcontribs) 08:17, 9 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
