Rolling traditional dice during a tabletop RPG sort of breaks the spell. It takes you out of the imaginative world and reminds you that you are, in fact, playing a game. But what if your dice played along with your story? The FlipDie does.

A die that you flip like a coin, this accessory is always balanced and fair. Its robust metal design and coin shape immerse you in your game. It’s just what your character would use when playing for chance.

Help bring this project to life by preordering a FlipDie for $25 on Kickstarter.
