Non transitive Grime dice

Non transitive Grime dice


In this set of dice, green tends to beat red, red tends to beat yellow, yellow tends to beat blue, and blue tends to beat purple. So you might think green is the best dice and purple is the worst. But here's the twist: purple beats green! There's no best dice. Use them to win money or drinks or respect or whatever. 

They’re called Grime Dice because they were discovered by our very own Dr James Grime of Cambridge University. There’s a lot more to these dice. Read all about them in James Grime’s article.

When you double up the dice, things get even weirder. That's why we sell them as a set of 10, two of each colour. If you want, you can buy just the 5 dice at a reduced price (select from the drop-down list above).

We also sell larger quantities of dice as schools sets, which come with lesson plans.

Full set price = p196 pence = £11.93

Half set price = p139 pence = £7.97
