Decahedron (d10)

He rolled a 5!

Another shot from the series I took of my old dice from Dungeons & Dragons. This one is the decahedron, the ten-sided die.

Extra-geeky geometry trivia: This is the only standard die used in role-playing games that is not a regular poyhedra—that is, not a Platonic solid.

If you make a set of dice consisting of the five Platonic solids, plus this decahedron, then you have a full set of gaming dice. (Of course, for practical use you'd probably want more than one of each, but still...)
