The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a 2014, randomly-generated roguelike starring Isaac, who has a problem. He has to escape from his religious zealot of a mother who wants to sacrifice him to her god. But, Isaac has a good head on his shoulders, and can take advantage of his environment to make his escape. Part of that includes making smart use of the unique room types found in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth.

Thus, we arrive at the topic of today’s coverage: Dice Rooms. They sound kinda fun, don’t they? I mean, when I think of dice, thoughts of fun, games, maybe an RPG campaign, come to mind. But, when it comes to Isaac’s adventures in the recesses of his basement, nothing is as it first appears. Let’s take a look at the Dice Rooms as we seek to tell you everything there is to know about these unique rooms.

What are Dice Rooms in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth?

It should first be noted that Dice Rooms are tied to Sacrifice Rooms. To elaborate, in order for a Dice Room to spawn, a Sacrifice Room must be spawned, first. If you manage to get a Dice Room to spawn, you’ll need two keys to unlock it. But, as soon as you unlock and enter a Dice Room, you may notice a few things about your run are randomized.

What is randomized depends largely on how many dice dots/pips appear on the room’s center platform. There are six possible results when entering a Dice Room:

  • 1 pip — randomizes Isaac’s items.
  • 2 pips — randomizes room pickups.
  • 3 pips — randomizes floor pickups/trinkets.
  • 4 pips — randomizes item pedestals.
  • 5 pips — restarts current floor entirely.
  • 6 pips — randomizes items, floor pickups/trinkets, and item pedestals.
