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 … Continue reading Eldritch Arts and Kraken Dice Review: Iconic Blue + Fire and Fury
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!
You can plainly see from any dice bag in Mandy’s shop – she’s got not only an eye for artist flare but one hell of a set of skills. Without a closer look, many people avoid a $30+ purchase to hold their dice, particularly bags, but this offering brings a lot of style, design, and … Continue reading EmBrace Leather Review – Premium Dragon Eye Leather Dice Bag
Easy Roller has been exceptional at bucking average trends in the gaming world. While people were making small 4×8 dice trays, they made an 11.5″ dice tray. People flooded the market with cheap metal dice, Easy Roller launched high quality gunmetal dice. Today, I’m here to let you know that they’ve went even further beyond … Continue reading Easy Roller Dice Co. Review – Staging Area Lidded Dice Tray
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 … Continue reading Die Hard Dice Review: Gothica Silver Ruby
So, lets imagine a nightmare scenario: You hate dice. You don’t care about rolling trays or dice boxes! You think ‘Who uses coins?” and one time your friend caught you spitting on their dice tower in disgust. You’re a honest to goodness monster. But you still need a character sheet… You still probably write down something, anything, … Continue reading The Rook & The Raven Review: Mischief & Misadventure Campaign Diary
This is a first! A few people every week ask me my opinions on applications that can be used for my tabletop games. So, I’ll start out with the one I use every. freaking. game. At least once, anyway – whether I’m a spellcaster player, a DM, or running interference for the DM by quick-drawing … Continue reading App Review: (D&D) 5th Edition Spellbook
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 … Continue reading DnDice UK Review: Legendary Tekthyrios (Blue and Gold)
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 … Continue reading Polyhero Dice Review: Wizard Dice + d20 Wizard’s Hat
You can all probably remember that I love EldritchArts a little too much. Gene is a really great and inspired guy, the honesty and care they put into their stuff is just… it’s great. Last time I reviewed their products, it made a HUGE impact on their production. New additions were added to not only … Continue reading Eldritch Arts Review: Avalon Dice + Pencil box
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 … Continue reading Die Hard Dice Review: Gothica Metal (Glow-in-the-Dark)
Now we’re really bucking tradition! Not dice, not even a common accessory – these Cantrip Candles have taken Twitter and Facebook by storm the past few months. Allegedly they are appropriately themed to give ambiance to your gaming room that matches the scene of the game, leading to further immersion. By Example: My D&D group … Continue reading Cantrip Candles Review: A Walk In The Woods + Samples
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!
Practically everyone, by now, knows of Wyrmwood Gaming and their amazing dice trays. I’ve loved working with them and have been blown away by their products. Today, we look at a direct competitor: NerdistWoodworking – an Arkansas based start-up company breaking into the quality wood gaming accessory world. This is the first product of theirs I’ve … Continue reading NerdistWoodworking Review: Padauk Greater Tray of Rolling
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 … Continue reading Die Hard Dice Review: Scorched Rainbow Metal Dice
“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 … Continue reading Wizards RPG Team Review: Tomb of Annihilation Dice
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!
Most, not all, DMs choose to use a Dungeon Master’s Screen to keep their notes and obvious cheating (for the betterment of the game) hidden from prying eyes. Keeping the screen artsy, stylish, and useful on both sides is paramount. Let’s see how WotC’s new DM Scren Reincarnated holds up!
So, you sit down at your gaming table and pull the shoe box lid out of your bag. Everyone nods, they know the struggle. You roll dice, have some laughs, and enjoy a night of gaming. So, you sit down at your gaming table and pull out a blue velvet bag nearly a foot long. … Continue reading Elderwood Academy Review: Scroll Codex Dice Tower System
