First off, great site! Very
informative! I was just curious about one thing. Does it matter which
way the dice are facing when you throw them?
For example, I saw that you have the mini V facing toward you, whereas the
flying V is facing away from you here on this page:
Does direction matter or is it more about
what numbers are exposed on the dice?

which had the flying V set up the same as in your example but the mini V

There are over 1000

pick it straight up and move it over, to the left, and place next to the
other die. (You simply switched right die to be the left die.) The V now
is pointing towards you again. Perform the 180 rotation. V points away,
What matters has more to do

order for you to develop the skill. Additionally, a detached acceptance
for the times when everything appears perfect, but the result is ugly.
Short answer, direction only
matters to you, the set you use and the direction of the faces to use,
should be the one which results with the most consistency for the desired
