Details

The d2/3/4 MultiDie is based on the rhombic dodecahedron. We modified the polyhedron by rounding down the eight vertices at which three faces meet. These eight locations were used for the d4 numbers 1-4 (once each, inset in triangles) and the d2 numbers 1 and 2 (twice each, inset in circles). The d3 numbers 1-3 were placed in the centers of the twelve faces, with each number appearing four times. The effect of all this is to show one up-facing number of each type for a given roll. Not only does this design provide three dice in one, but it tumbles nicely. Designs for a d3 or d4 with only three or four sides don't tumble well due to the large angles between faces. For selecting between two choices, rolling a die is easier and more satisfying than flipping a coin. A triangle was used around the d4 numbers because standard tetrahedral four-sided dice have triangular faces. A circle was used around the d2 numbers because flipping a coin is the traditional way of randomly selecting between two choices. Since all three d3 numbers appear for any d4 or d2 value, a single roll can be considered independent fair rolls of both the d3 and either the d2 or d4. The idea for a three-in-one d2/3/4 die is due to Jimmy Kerl, who participated in the design process.
