The folks at Die Hard Dice have been paramount in their customer service and willingness to work with and for the tabletop community. Their store gives you tons of useful information about these dice sets – enough you should feel comfortable buying them without my opinion. Yeah, I know that’s pretty damaging to my own platform, eh? But it’s worth commending them. If you’ve checked out their Forge Dice line and are still unsure, you’ve come to the right place. Lets take an intimate look at their “Force Dice Shiny Silver w/Black” (certainly not the catchiest name… )
I’ve decided to tackle a double review this week. After 11 days of CONSTANT camera issues and photography hang-ups, computer problems and project failures, at least I’ve finally gotten around to writing about two of my favorite products: A new Dragon Themed Pencil Dice Box from Eldritch Arts, and the highly sought after Iconic Blue limited run dice from Kraken Dice!
Why a fire-breathing dragon and a sea-foam kraken together? Let me show you –
We’ve reviewed DnDiceUK’s metal dice before – but now we’re taking a look some of their other products! But first, let me completely blow up the dice industry… Buckle up, y’all!
We’ve seen a lot of dice form Die Hard Dice – and they’re generally pretty damn nice. I’ve always had a soft spot for their Gothica series – and I finally get to bring them to your ocular sockets!
Low and behold, it’s been a rainy, foggy, gross mess for two solid months – so these photos are all over the place. Bear with me as we talk about the highlights and low-points of Gothica Ruby and Silver!
DnDice.UK has been going far beyond your average dice shop. Since I was introduced to Grady, this company has continued to surprise me month after month with their dedication and hard work. Now we get a chance to look at their new precision milled aluminum dice – each of which are named after a Legendary dragon from D&D’s past iterations!
Today, we’re taking a look at Tekthyrios, a Storm Dragon who was fed mushrooms that let the portal in his belly open to fiends who nearly destroyed Celestia…. not making this up.
We’ve had novelty dice in the past (glow in the dark, free-floating dice, etc) but … never THIS level of novelty. These took the internet by storm when they were announced many eons ago – I was shared the Warrior Dice link at least a thousand times. Now we step away from the bloodsoaked carnage and into the realm of high magic.
These dice are clearly interesting, but do they hold up to what dice aspire to be? Are Wizard Dice just a fun toy to keep around, or will they make it into your weekly use at the gaming table? Let’s find out.
There is something special about d6s compared to other dice. From a throw at a Craps table, lifting the cup for Cho-han, or making a move in the popular Powered by the Apocalypse system, rolling 2d6s just… it just feels official. Today, let’s take a quick and concise look at my favorite d6s out on the market today.
Note: some of these are not cheap. But that’s true of most dice I review, after all.
Novelty is sometimes dangerous. Dice that light up, dice boxes that have levels and snaps and foam inserts, dice trays that look like a honeycomb – they get annoying, in the way, or cheapen the product.
One example of novelty done right in my mind is glow-in-the-dark dice. Die Hard Dice is the first set I’ve had on this blog and, if the preview image isn’t a big enough spoiler, they’re pretty damn cool. Lets take a closer look.
Easy Roller Dice and I have had a wonderful professional relationship since I’ve started this whole blog thing. I have to say, I am a little partial to their products – they tend to be simple and well executed, clean and crafted well, pragmatic.
Today, we take a look at their Legendary Metal D20s!
So we’re tackling yet another dice set this week – unfortunately they are the only photos I have prepared due to personal issues, but I’m incredibly excited to finally get my hands on Die Hard Dice.
First impressions are lovely – these dice are an oil-slick style multi-color metal set that may possibly go with every other color set you own. Unfortunately Scorched Rainbow dice are out of stock, as are most of them, on the Die Hard Dice website, but if you look around enough you can find them from other sellers!
Let’s look at everything these dice have to offer – ONWARD into the review!
“Dare to defy death in this adventure for the world’s greatest roleplaying game.”
This themed dice set was launched to help herald the coming of the Tomb of Annihilation RPG supplement from Wizards of the Coast.
The release of dozens of production shots and various artworks created a lot of buzz about these things before the dice were even on store shelves, but does it live up to the hype and is it worth your money? Let’s find out.
Some companies, including DnDice, have dialed in their product to exactly what they want, and it shows. While hitting all the same high notes as their Ancient Dragon dice set, their Metallic Dragon offering gives a wonderful alternative in feel, finish, and color to their other offerings. Let’s take a closer look!
In the end – it is “Drop The Die” not “Drop The Accessories,” so back to our roots! The extraordinarily kind people at Kraken Dice have really taken extra effort to blow me completely away! You can see a complete unboxing video here
The world is a huge place – but social media has made it easier than ever to connect with people and companies you’d otherwise never even know. One such connection I’ve made is with Level Up Dice, an Australian company specializing in higher-end luxury dice. Any of you that have spent much time looking for metal, gemstone, or other precious material dice have probably at least seen some of their products in the past.
Likewise, they are often seen on the popular Acquisitions Incorporated games (a PennyArcade D&D actual play series).
We’ve had a dice-heavy couple of weeks – but damn if I don’t still love ’em! This week, we’re checking out a completely new company, for this blog – Paladin Roleplaying!
I stumbled onto these guys by complete accident – seeing one of their products listed on Amazon. I contacted Neil and asked him for recommendations, his favorite sets currently offered, and snagged them all for a nice highlight review for you guys. There are hundreds of dice companies popping up all over the place, so it’s important you know who you’re investing your time and money into – and by the end of this review, i hope you’ll feel as comfortable as I do with Paladin dice. Let’s jump right in!
So Darksilver Forge may not have many options available right now, but what they do have is uniformity and consistency. Today, we’ll be taking a look at their second “launch” set of dice: Cthulhu’s Gold. Let’s step right into the review.
It can be hard sharing your hobby with people around the globe. Given the state of postal services now-a-days, there’s always the option to order long distances, but given shipping rates it’s best to be sure of what you’re getting into. So today we look at a product from across the pond from my friends over at DnDice UK
Back to my truest of true loves. Metal DICE! A relatively unknown company to me I stumbled ass backwards onto, happily, is Darksilver Forge. We’ll be taking a look at one of their (currently) two metal dice options. Let’s dive in.
My expertise is the cold, hard, industrious feel of Metal dice, but I’ve always been extremely interested in the various options out there – both for myself and for you, dear reader.
To that end, the weekly players of my D&D5e game pooled resources (not evenly, I bet) to purchase me this beautiful set of Imbuia wooden dice from Artisan Dice during one of their dice lotteries. It even came with a complementary d20. I believe it’s Chechen (black poisonwood), but I’m unsure as it was not labeled.
All of you know by now that I’m a huge fan of Easy Roller Dice Co – from pounds of dice to beard oil and everything in between. I’ve done several reviews for them and used dozens of their products in photo shoots and at my table every week. My constant flaunting of their fantastic Gunmetal Dice led my table of 7 players to hoard together 8 full sets of them in various colors – not including my own Legendary Copper dice. Having the ability, I’ve decided to compare, contrast, and review the various color options so you can make a more informed decision when you, dear reader, are ready to purchase ten sets yourself!
