Default How dice were made

Hello,
I'm a new member here so go easy on me :D
I was reading an article about how dice were made and a little bit of history surrounding dice.

Did you know that in early medieval times, dice were often "unbalanced" in the arrangement of numbers, where 1 appears opposite 2, 3 opposite 4, and 5 opposite 6? It didn't matter the material of the dice nor the shape because people used to believe that the outcome was predetermined by the gods.

You can read it here if you're interested.
