When you guys say 'casino dice' you mean those large, weighty, designed to roll on a flat surface and bounce off an object, dice, right?

"Are you sure you can handle giving all those dice a decent shake, buddy?" or "Do you want me to fetch you a cup to role all those in, coz you only got little hands?"

Only use incase of cheating basterds, but usually does the trick.

They don't have to bounce off object dice, casino dice are just perfectly weighted dice

casino dice are designed for casino conditions. Not felt mats.

My Casino dice are the huge clear red ones. I dont know if they are the same every where but, Mine work great on the felt mats at my local store. Mine do bounce alittle bit on the plastic tables we use so I make sure they are away from anyones models.

Hebr those people are just trying to keep the dice from flying all around the table and knocking unto things and getting lost. If ou think people go home and practice rolling dice so that they come up with 6s then you are either paranoid or you play with some real bastards.

I think you should just relax a bit. Sit down and try to roll 6s on a dice by manipulating how it rolls. You will find that it's not easy an to get it to wok you have to be very very obvious about it. The guys you are talking about are probably not thinking about "cheating" and are finding you to be ridiculously anal.

i use the warhammer dice app on my iphone that way it gives random resaults each time and when your rolling over 100 dice (which i've had to do with my orks before ) it is alot easier. all you do is put in the amount of dice required the target number and how many rerolls and it just gives you the resaults of how many successful dice were rolled. my friends and i use it all the time takes away any chance of cheating and also no chance of hitting models.
