From now on I'm going to refer to flipping a coin as 'rolling a d2'

Dice is plural you mean die, and no it's not.

Well? Why isn't it?

A coin is a flat, metal disc. A die is typically a 6 sided plastic cube, but can be up to 120 sides.

4 sided dice are also a thing.

As are two-sided dice.

I wonder if a one-sided die is possible.

There is actually a third (but rare) chance of it landing on its side. So its like a d3 with skewed odds.

In fact, this happened to me once. I threw about a dozen coins on the table and one quarter landed on its edge, spun around and stayed standing - and did not roll away. But of course no one believes me.

I believe you.

A similar chance exists for a die and ending up on a corner, no?

Good point. Most die corners are rounded, but there are the pointy ones where it could happen once in a blue moon. It'd be like a glitch in the matrix moment.

Couldn't it land on any of the 360 degrees of the circle, making it a d362?
