You've probably got the standard seven-dice Dungeons & Dragons
collection of a d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20 and that goofy 10-sided
percentile die.

And the mighty d100? Don't forget the d100

This 120 looks cool, but I admit I don't know any place to use it... true, I'm not following the p'n'p scene lately. Which game uses 120? I know about a 60, so probably for the rare cases of 2 x 60 it might be useful, but a separate dice for that seems odd. Is there a system with a lot of rolls against 120?

I have also a d2 (okay flip that spacial coin ), d30 and d100. Have seen a d7 on a fair once but that one die was €10. Also seen a d24 somewhere, but don't recall the price of it.

Silly Q though - what's a d120 good for..?

[EDIT] forgot to mention that one loaded d6 I have

In a 4-dimensional space, you could have 600-sided dice. That's the 4-dimensional analog of the 3-dimensional icosahedron that is customarily used for a 20-sided die. But there isn't a 5-dimensional or higher analog of it.

Still got a dice bag packed away somewhere, but, a D120, as a curiousity sure, but for anything else, there are more practical options that are less likely to roll off the end of a table.

As others have mentioned, I don't really see a use for this. The d100, albeit mostly a novelty, could at least be used for percentile rolls. In what roleplay system would you be rolling a 120 sider?

You've probably got the standard seven-dice Dungeons & Dragons
collection of a d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20 and that goofy 10-sided
percentile die. Now throw them all away and put in an order for The Dice Lab's d120.

The
Dice Lab calls its d120 "the first mass-produced injection-molded
120-sided die." The concept for this monster has been around thanks to a
120-faced geometric pattern called a disdyakis triacontahedron that
uses an elongated triangle for each face. While there have been some
3D-printed attempts, it's been hard to get your hands on a d120. Until
now.

Multi-sided dice are often used in tabletop role-playing
games to build characters and determine the amount of damage in combat.
The Dice Lab's fantastical creation is pretty substantial for a die. It
has a diameter of 2 inches (50 millimeters) and weighs over 3 ounces
(about 90 grams). It's available in red, black, green, blue and white. A
single die costs $12 (£8.50, AU$15.80) and The Dice Lab expects to have
stock available within a month or two.

You know people have been creative with the older dice and could roll all sorts of funny things. Like using a d20 and d6 to roll d120. Or a d20 to roll d17.

Kyleran: "Now there's the real trick, learning to accept and enjoy a game for what
it offers rather than pass on what might be a great playing experience
because it lacks a few features you prefer."

John Henry Newman: "A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault."

FreddyNoNose: "A good game needs no defense; a bad game has no defense." "Easily digested content is just as easily forgotten."

LacedOpium: "So the question that begs to be asked is, if you are not interested in
the game mechanics that define the MMORPG genre, then why are you
playing an MMORPG?"

And I thought D14, D16 and D30 felt a bit too much...

I love dice but 120 is not really a good number for randomizing. A D100 is far more useful since it is so easy to get the percentage to succeed down.

I do guess you could use it in games like R.I:F.T.S for massive vehicle damage but the number is a bit too random for that, rolling 10D12 would average a far more logical result for that.

You could roll this dice for everything you need and use decimals and round up or down. You need a d20. Roll it and the divide the number you get by 6, round up or down to the whole integer and bam. You are done.

I prefer this dice:

Rolling a D3 is actually something I do in games.
