  1. Yeah, I have a few stories. None that I am willing to post in public. Just in case I want to run for office someday.
  2. When I was at MSU we use to climb to the roof of that arena and drink beers watching the sun come up. It was sunk in the ground and had a metal roof with diagonal slats that made it easy to climb right up it. Plus, once you were up there you could see everything. Including the campus police well before they got close.
  3. Ugh, this hurts. I have never, ever in my whole life worn anything with that stupid M on it. All that work for this.
  4. @Barb Bliss I am only hoping that the loss was so devastating that they all come back next year
  5. Wooden Dice!

    Oh, sorry, my eyes aren't opened yet. Too puffy from all the crying yesterday. The top left is Timborana, the third over is Mulberry.
  6. Wooden Dice!

    That's Timborana. Yeah, it's very cool.
  7. Wooden Dice!

    Nope. Not at all. The inlays are put in in 2 to 3 layers and are very secured. Two coats of catalyzed lacquer seals is all in.
  8. Ugh. I blame myself as well. Hmmm, maybe @Shamgar will forget this bet was ever made... That was a rough one. Hard to say they didn't limp to the finish when they missed their last 14 shots. 14!!!!
  9. Wooden Dice!

    Some of the dice were ones that our playtesters bought before this official launch. We wanted to try out the website. They also went a little nuts. Those are also the pics you see in here.

    New article about balance is up. It's all sciency cuzza @Zoe
  11. We are Viking Lumberjacks, not scientists. But, our Head of Ops, Zoe once was. We asked her to test our Wooden Dice using that strange, wonderful, unknowable thing they call science. So, onto her results. To test the balance of our dice, we took a Chacate Preto D20 (similar weight to your typical plastic D20) and rolled it 1000 times. We also rolled a D20 made by one of the most popular plastic dice brands on the market 1000 times. You can see the roll results below in bar graph format. You may be tempted to draw some conclusions from this graph, but let's get into the nitty gritty. First, some basic statistics: our Chacate Preto D20 had an average roll of 10.427 with a standard deviation of 5.6684, the plastic die had an average roll of 10.205 with a standard deviation of 5.5559. Already, these numbers appear like they won't have any statistically significant difference between them. But let's test that to be sure. So, second, a quick, simple test: a two-tailed t-test gives us a t value of 0.37645. This is higher than your standard alpha cutoff, 0.05, so this tells us that there is no statistically significant difference between their averages, as we expected. But let's go deeper... What about the rolls within each die? Does the wood or plastic die roll certain numbers more or less than any others? Performing an ANOVA, we get a p value of 0.3721. Again, this is higher than 0.05, so there is no significant difference across the roll results. There is variance, but no number appears more or less than another in a significant manner. Finally, what about between one another? Is the roll distribution in the wooden die different from the plastic? Nope – and this is the most definitive result. With a p value greater than 0.9999 (from another facet of the ANOVA), there is no statistically significant difference between the two die's results. From the ANOVA, we do also get coefficients of variation. The wooden die's was 17.99% and the plastic die's was 21.97%. As we already stated, there's no statistically significant difference between these two variations. It could be argued that the wooden die has less variation – the numbers are more evenly distributed in their chances – but it's insignificant. DISCLAIMER: These are just two die. It is entirely possible that we could grab another plastic die and another wooden die and the results would be different (although it's pretty likely that the differences would still be insignificant). Unbalanced die can be produced, but to thoroughly test the likelihood of those existing, you would need to roll multiple, different die of the same manufacturer 1000 times (preferably on different surfaces, by different people). At the end of the day, though, our dice are virtually the same as your most popular plastic brands out there (balance-wise) and you shouldn't need to worry about your rolls!
  12. Wooden Dice!

    So my week looks like this: Monday 1, Monday 2, Monday 3, Monday 4, Friday, Cost of Doing Business, Cost of Doing Business. Sweet!

    So, I just posted the first in a short series of articles talking about some of the topics the Underdogs brought up during our prototyping for Wooden Dice. Check it out here:
