Gamescience Tigers Eye 6 piece Collector Set - These dice are black, with orange stripes, and silver inked digits. The 20 in this set reads 0-9 twice because neither the 20+ nor the true 20 molding tools existed when these were made.

To assure that every edge and vertex holds its mathematically precise dimensions, all Gamescience® dice are clipped by hand from the casting sprue, which leaves a minor blemish. These sharp pristine edges dissipate uniform amounts of energy as each contacts the table. Filing down the blemish improves randomization. Imported dice have no blemish cause they are tumbled in a rock polisher, which eliminates the blemish while rounding off all of the edges, and changes each face and edge into a unique shape which leaves every dice egg shaped and unable to randomize evenly.

Some quality dice but few nicks on some.
I really can't complain if these dice are old stock which might be the reason that there are nick and dents on the d6. These dice are very light which might turn others off due to them being less tactile. However, they look good. Some of the dice are pure black while some have heavy orange, so no two set lookalike Lastly, the opposite faces of the die do not add up to n+1 like regular dice. Not sure if they affect randomization but there are quality dice.

None like it.
I originally got two sets of these right before GS' temporary absence from the dice world, a few years back. These are my go to dice and have served me very well. I have never had any problems with them smoothing, chipping, etc. The only issue I ever have is someone trying to correct me and tell me the 20 sider isn't a d10. Which is more amusing, than it is a problem.

Shipped fast, packaged nicely. Numerals nicely inked except for the d6 - not inked. Nicely made otherwise. Handsome pattern, evenly distributed coloration and swirling throughout. The set came in a clear plastic tube that included the text: "... molded a letter 'G' on our 10's and 20's so you'll know ... has the two-year-guarantee . . ." Checked all the dice, no letter "G". Must be a change since the 1980's, right?
