Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(in Repentance)

Spindown Dice is an unlockable activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[ | ]

  • Rerolls all pedestal items in a room by subtracting their internal ID number by one until a valid item is rolled. This effect occurs per item and is independent of any other items in the room.
    • Unlockable items will be skipped if they are not unlocked.

Notes[ | ]

Synergies[ | ]

  • Collectible Book of Virtues iconBook of Virtues: Spawns a random wisp in the middle ring and rerolls all of Isaac's wisps into the type that was just spawned. Due to some wisps having unique behaviors, Isaac can end up with more or less wisps in a given ring than expected.
  • Collectible Glitched Crown iconGlitched Crown / Character Isaac iconIsaac with Collectible Birthright iconBirthright / Character Tainted Isaac iconTainted Isaac: Rerolling a cycling item will reduce the ID number of the displayed item by 1 and randomize all other options. This may allow Isaac to acquire items with large ID numbers by jumping to a higher ID.

Interactions[ | ]

  • Collectible Car Battery iconCar Battery: All future rerolls turn into the item that is 2 less than the previous ID.
  • Collectible The Sad Onion iconThe Sad Onion: Disappears upon being rerolled, as its internal ID number is 1.
  • Collectible TMTRAINER iconTMTRAINER / Corrupted Data Corrupted Data: Glitch items will disappear if rerolled.

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 dice item that cannot be copied by the Collectible D infinity iconD infinity.
    • It is arguable that Spindown Dice is not necessarily a dice item, since its effect does not involve random generation.
  • Spindown Dice itself will be rerolled into Collectible Anima Sola iconAnima Sola, while Collectible Hypercoagulation iconHypercoagulation rerolls into it.
  • Using Spindown Dice on Collectible Smart Fly iconSmart Fly rerolls into Collectible Clear Rune iconClear 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:
    • Collectible Mom's Ring iconMom's Ring, as it has the highest ID of all items (without mods taking a higher number, etc).
    • Collectible Strawman iconStrawman, due to Collectible Dad's Note iconDad's Note having immunity to being rerolled.
  • Defeating Boss Delirium ingameDelirium as most tainted characters will unlock an item that is similar to their gameplay characteristic. However, Tainted Isaac's passive ability to have multiple items cycle on an item pedestal (Collectible Glitched Crown iconGlitched Crown) is unlocked through defeating Boss The Beast ingameThe Beast instead.
