    I had one of those. It was part of a pair of novelty dice, the other die was half 6s, half 2s. "Always rolls 7 or 11!"
    Took 'em to class back in high school one day. It was amazing how many times people would roll them before figuring it out.

    The all 5's die is a craps cheater's die. It is paired with a die that has 3 2's and 3 6's so you will always roll 7s or 11s.

    I have to wonder sometimes, there must be fair dice for each number, even though most of them will look unfair. Take a d20, for example. It has 12 corners, and 5 triangles meet at each corner. You can shave off a little bit from each corner, to make 12 pentagon sides and 20 hexagon sides. If you do it just right, you'll make a soccer ball but you know the pentagon sides are smaller than the hexagon sides (on a soccer ball, they are regular pentagons and regular hexagons, therefore they have equal side length, so the pentagon is quite a bit smaller), and the chance that the die lands on a hexagon side is bigger than that for a pentagon side. And if you lop off too much, those hexagon sides disappear and you turn it into a d12. There must be some middle ground where it makes a fair d32...it's hard finding where. And hard to bring those dice with you and convince someone else that it's fair.

    My d3 is a d6 with "1-2-3-1-2-3" I used to crack that out for the rare times I might wish to roll low until my GM caught on...

    An ordinary 6-sided dice with two 1's, two 2's and two 3's on it.
