On deck: From lower-left and going clockwise, my five-dice set, three-dice set, and two-dice set. When you have multiple dice-divining sets, it helps to have some visual cue to distinguish them from one another.

In the time since I first covered the subject of dice divination, I’ve taken a second look at the whole subject. I’ve clarified, tightened-up, and revamped the meanings I assigned to the various dice throws, and re-configured the hand-outs accordingly. I think I’ve got the whole subject better-organized now.


Yes there is such a thing as one-die divination, but you throw a single die for three different life categories—general life influences, love or emotional matters, and money or financial matters. Each category, of course, will have only six possible answers, so the answers are a bit general. The principal benefit and strength of this approach to dice divination lies in its short-term specificity. The caster can tailor their forecast to their situation. If you don’t feel like asking about emotional or love matters some week, you can just go with the general influences and money matters dice.

On deck: the general life influences die, with the money/financial matters and love/emotional matters dice waiting their turn on the draw-string bag.

To aid myself with this form of divination, I purchased a five-pack of different-colored dice. I’ll think of what to do with the two unused dice later, but having a different-colored die for each cast helps fix in my mind that this die is for this particular question. Red for emotional matters, yellow for general influences, and green for money matters. It works.

You’ll notice in the one-die-answer-key, I’ve included the one-die interpretations from two different people. You’re going to have to experiment with both individuals’ interpretations in order to determine which is more accurate for you. You may find both versions apply in some cases.


After looking over the information (what little there is) on two-dice divination, I’ve concluded that two-dice divination could best be described as an annotated yes-or-no system, with a little counsel or advice thrown in. It’s a step above a simple yes-no system like Urim & Thumin. This is a good source to consult if you want the answer to yes-or-no, stay-or-go, will my plan work or crash-and-burn, sort of questions. Since two dice are only capable of giving you twelve different answers, its limited scope is understandable.

There are other divination tools which employ the use of two dice. I found a table in Felix Fontaine’s book, which he designed to help gamblers such as lottery-players find lucky numbers, and it employs the use of two dice. For the interested, the PDF for this appears below the two-dice answer key:

In a book shop once, I found a reproduction of Madam Le Normond’s Fortune Telling System, an 1866 C.E. product which capitalizes on Madame LeNormand’s name (which they misspelled) and I’m sure has nothing to do with her. But it also uses two dice in its casting system. For the interested, I’ll include the bibliographic data at the end of this lesson.
