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.

We’ve had novelty dice in the past (glow in the dark, free-floating dice, etc) but … never THIS level of novelty.

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)

By Example: My D&D group … Continue reading Cantrip Candles Review: A Walk In The Woods + Samples

This is the first product of theirs I’ve … Continue reading NerdistWoodworking Review: Padauk Greater Tray of Rolling

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!

I have a PhD in being an overtly frugal dude. It’s what made this entire venture of mine happen – i never knew what to buy and only a handful of people were reviewing things adequately. I wanted weights, measurements, pictures, discussion. One of the companies that always impressed the hell out of me with … Continue reading Elderwood Academy Review: Spellbook
How cool does that look? Today, we’re taking a look at one of the most sought after of dice accessories: the affordable and small dice tray!
