  • While the game appears to be completely luck-based, the dice’s movement is actually physic-based meaning you can get the number you want by good timing! The easiest to get is a 4 by hitting the dice when the 4 side is fully visible. A 3 is trickier to get but is possible if you wait for it to be as visible as possible. The horizontal numbers can be obtained in a similar manner by hitting the dice when the two other numbers aren’t clearly visible and the desired number is on the middle although the timing is fairly strict!  ~ Spongyoshi
