Hello my dear readers,
This month we have an answer from the bedroom.
(Careful Ed!) Does the size of the dice make a difference for dice

Enjoy Ed's "pillow talk" Does Size Really
Does Size Really Matter?
I was recently playing craps in Las Vegas and notice
different casinos use different size of dices. Have you noticed this? Also
there's not much difference, but is there enough to make a difference?
Last, have you noticed if it's better to play at a empty table, so that
when you throw the dice don't deflect of other peoples chips at the other
end of the table, which usually turns your number you might throw into a

Okay Brian, I have to be careful with his one..

Yes, you are correct. Most casinos use 3/4 inch
dice but some go with 11/16 and 5/8. The larger dice are easier to
manipulate for most dice setters. However, size only matters in the
bedroom, not in a dice game…so I am told. (duck)
If you learn to control your drop, and you should, hitting the chips is a
non issue. Play alone, play with others, it really comes down to what is
working and producing results for your style of play. You make it too hard
on yourself if you limit your game to empty tables. Casinos are more
likely to close an empty table than have you crank overhead for four
employees. They know their business and if there are two tables open, they
expect them to be full most of the shift. Learn to follow the energy of
the game, and not limiting factors like empty verses full or half full
tables. Develop your craft and increase your knowledge. Play smarter.
Superstitious dice is just that. Hitting the chips happens and seven is
the favored outcome and usually not the number you want when a die hits
the chips. Silly really to give it any merit. Sevens happen!
Casino dice were made of cellulose nitrate, starting around
the 1920s, but sometime around the 1950s the manufacturers switched to
cellulose acetate which is more durable. Very old casino dice
have often started to crystallize and will have turned yellowish around
the edges. This crystallization is caused by age and exposure to
moisture and ultra-violet light. A completely crystallized die will
disintegrate if pressure is applied
