Well they aren't dice. They are spin down counters. And they shouldn't be used as dice because you can easily control them.

Warp over time? As in do they become deformed? I've never had any of my fat pack dice do that. Did something happen to yours?

What do you mean LeaPlath? Surely just a D20 with a stamp on, or are you being tongue-in-cheek?

A spindown counter has adjacent numbers arranged in a numerically ascending/descending order.
A true d20 die is arranged such that the numbers on opposite faces add up to 21.
The die creates a more random distribution of results, whereas a spindown counter always has one hemisphere with a concentration of high values and one hemisphere with a concentration of low values. Thus, it is theoretically possible to bias the results of spindown rolls in a way not practical with true d20s.

Use them to keep track of life, don't use them for actual dice rolls.

Interesting, you know I'd never looked in such detail. Learn something new every day!
