George Sicherman discovered an interesting pair of dice whose sums have the same probability distribution as a pair of standard dice, and this was reported by Martin Gardner in 1978. This pair of

Summary A pair of 6-sided dice cannot be relabeled to make the sums 2, 3, … 12 equally likely. It is possible to label seven, 10-sided dice so that the sums 7, 8, …, 70 occur equally often. We
My younger son has become interested in the game “dungeons and dragons”. He is intrigued by the shapes of the dice that are used to play the game and by the number of faces they have. Besides the

An interesting and challenging problem in mathematics is how to construct fair dice pairs. In this paper, by means of decomposing polynomials in a residue class ring and applying the Discrete Fourier
