Standard set of **seven dice**– a four-sided (d4), six-sided (d6), eight-sided (d8), ten-sided (d10), ten-sided percentile (d10 in 10’s), a twelve-sided (d12), and the classic twenty-sided (d20) dice. I like this specific set because the numbers are super easy to see!

## Why does a D10 have a 0?

The one with two digits is just telling you the tens digit, and the one with one digit is the ones digit. If you’re rolling only that die with 0, 10, 20, etc., then a 10 = a 1 and the 00 = a 10. 0 or 00 on a **d10 just means the highest number**.

The **more dice you have on hand**, the faster you can get rolls done which keeps the game flowing. My players most often use d4s or d6s for damage dice – most have a bag each. If they need more dice, such as 8d6 for a spell, I have a stockpile of different dice I can lend to them for the session.
