Risky Dice (リスキーダイス, Risukī Daisu) is a card found in the Greed Island game. It is one of the game's 100 designated slot cards and is required for a player to complete the game. It allows the user the chance to increase their luck... but at a risk of course.
When this card is 'gained', the player obtains a 20-sided (icosahedron) dice. 19 of the sides, if rolled, give the player very good luck, but if the player rolls on the 'very bad luck' side, the resulting bad luck is bad enough to counteract all the good luck all players on the island have accumulated since the last bad roll, often resulting in the death of the thrower.
This dice can be used for nearly any situation where you wish to increase your odds at winning. For example, this dice is the key to winning valuable cards in the City of Gambling, Dorias.
