Thrice uses special six-sided dice on which the number 1 appears on one face, 2 on two, 3 on three. These dice are d³, pronounced "d-thrice". One d-thrice is referred to as 1d³, two dice as 2d³, and so on.
Each die rolled in the game aims to obtain a target number, which can be 1, 2 or 3. If the result of a die is equal to the target number, that die scores a success. The target is indicated in round brackets after the number of dice. If a trap inflicts 5d³(3), the Master rolls 5 dice: each result of 3 represents one damage inflicted.
As an alternative to d³, you can use ordinary six-sided dice (d6). In that case, if the result of a die is equal to or less than the target number, that die scores a success.

Thank the heavens, it's always such a trouble to half the d6s to make d3s.

I won't post the whole kickstarter detail, but I thought the custom dice was interesting.
This breaks down to:
need a 1: 16.6% (1 in 6 chance)
need a 2: 33.3% (1 in 3 chance)
need a 3: 50% (1 in 2 chance)
Using a d6 as suggested would be:
need a 1: (roll a 1) : 16.6%
need a 2: (roll a 1, 2) : 33.3%
need a 3: (roll a 1, 2, 3): 50%
rolls of 4-6 are ignored
Dice pools meh. You're making successes fairly average I guess which
while good for the players statistically, is not for good for fun, as I learned with 4e's skill challenges.
