This is sort of a companion list to: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=99...

Here I am looking for games that has six sided dice, but the numbers (or pips) on them are not the usual 1 through 6.

The dice should have only numbers (or pips) on them (if they have other symbols, they should go in the other GeekList).

These special dice allow for rolling the numbers between 10-39. I think they were in many of the SI Sports games.

The die has 1-3 (each number twice) on it. Makes it easier for very young children to count the moves, presumably.

this numbering is apparently also used in a number of other games. See thread:

Combat dice in this game are numbered/pipped 1-3.

Movement die has an eagle on it IIRC though, so this one could go on both lists.

The Duel Dice are gradiated D6s. 1-6, 2-7, 3-8. Bonuses are made by shifing die choice, which is identical to adding or subtracting, just faster.

When rolling dice, it is easy to see the high roll and the difference, which determine who hit and how hard, rather than "OK, I rolled a 3, plus one for a rear attack, you rolled a 5 minus one for rear attack, minus two for three opponents, plus one for cautious stance now what's the difference in our totals?"

The doubling cube is the coolest die ever. Sometimes (when I used to play RPGs) I would randomly exchange a doubling cube for a d6, just to mix things up a little. I love the doubling dice.

The doubling cube has: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 on its faces, and is absolutely frikkin awesome.

Although I can not confirm this because I don't own the game, but I believe the multiplier die has 0-1-1-2-2-3 on its six sides.

Each of the three dice has different numbers, and none of them is standard. In your turn, you decide which die or dice to roll. I can't check the numbers because I don't have the game anymore, but I think they are 1-2-3, 3-4-5 and 5-6-7, each number appearing twice, or something like that.

okay it's only one side of one die, and you had to buy it seperately, but nothing says "GAME OVER" like a mushroom cloud for a number one.
