Why iXLP reverse?
We took the standard six (6) sided die and spun it on its head. We removed the small dots usually used for pips and replaced them with our own design. Rather than small dots representing each numeral, we decided to use the whole die face to represent the numerals. On each face the we have separated it into areas whose quantity represent the numeral for that side. By using simple, yet elegant geometric designs for our custom dice, we’ve kept them easy to read while providing a stunning modern take on the traditional die. The iXLP variation takes this custom metal die one step further and inverts the design! Now instead of removing the material to make the pips we’ve instead removed everything around them. This time around though we colored inside the lines, giving a modern more metallic look.
We then ditched the molded plastic in favor of solid aluminum. Plastic is fine for children’s toys, but metal dice are so much better at making a statement! As soon as you pick them up you’ll feel the difference between plastic and metal dice. There’s a certain feel, a heft or weight, that adds confidence to your rolls when using a custom metal die. It feels substantial in your hand and strangely satisfying as you hear it rumble across the table. It’s just better!
