## Where can I find my DnD ability scores?

To start playing, you only need one of each: the D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, and D20, but standard **7-dice sets** also include a second D10 which is used for percentile rolls.

## Why does a D10 have a 0?

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**.
