Sicherman Dice

These dice, when thrown together, have the same probability distribution as a pair of ordinary dice – there are 6 ways to throw a 7, 5 ways to throw an 8, etc. Discovered by George Sicherman, they are the only alternate configuration to maintain the probability distribution in which all face values are positive.
