Synergies[]

  • Glitched Crown Glitched Crown / Isaac Isaac with Birthright Birthright / Tainted Isaac Tainted Isaac: Rerolling a cycling item will reduce the ID number of the displayed item by 1 and randomize all other options.

Trivia[]

  • A spindown die is a type of die used as a life counter for Magic: The Gathering or for various other uses across card and board games. It is a D20 with the numbers laid out in a sequential pattern, to allow for the face-up number to be changed easily when a player's life goes up or down.
  • The item's color scheme matches the D8 die included in The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls card game, which is used as a spindown die to keep track of an enemy's health.
  • Spindown Dice is the only die item that cannot be copied by the D Infinity D Infinity.
  • Spindown Dice itself will be rerolled into Anima Sola Anima Sola, while Hypercoagulation Hypercoagulation rerolls into it.
  • Using Spindown Dice on Smart Fly Smart Fly rerolls into Clear Rune Clear Rune, which is the only Repentance added item to reroll from a Rebirth one. This is due to the item taking up a previously unused item id.
  • Two items are impossible to obtain with Spindown Dice:
    • Mom's Ring Mom's Ring, as it has the highest ID of all items (without mods taking a higher number, etc).
    • Strawman Strawman, due to Dad's Note Dad's Note having immunity to being rerolled.

Seeds[]

Bugs[]
