Some ten-sided dice are numbered in tens (00, 10, 20, and so on), making it easier to distinguish the tens digit from the ones digit. In this case, a roll of 70 and 1 is 71, and 00 and 0 is 100.” … 0 on a d10 means “10”. 10+0=10.

## How do you use d10 dice?

You can also use this as a standard d10 just by **using only the tens digit on each face**. In any event, once you’ve decided which die is which digit, roll them both and combine them to get the result. If you’re rolling 2d10, then multiply the tens die’s result by 10 and then add them together.

**0 is read as 10 for d10**, so 0 should be read as 100 for d100? When rolling 1 die, the ‘0’ is 10. When rolling two dice, the ‘0’ is 0: unless, however, you roll two ‘0”s, in which case the reading is 100 rather than 0. So, with two dice, ‘4’ and ‘0’ is 40.

## How do you roll a 10 on a d10?

The one with two digits is just telling you the tens digit, and the one with one digit is the ones digit. If you’re rolling only that die with 0, 10, 20, etc., then a 10 = a 1 and the 00 = a 10. 0 or 00 on a d10 just means **the highest number**.
