I remember when Dragon Dice came out. I must have bought 2 or 3 sets, with the expectation they would be a hit amongst my gaming group.
Actually, I'm pretty sure they weren't a big hit anywhere. TSR's attempt to cash in on the Magic the Gathering craze wasn't the success they were hoping it would be. Amazingly enough, there is another company that has picked up the rights to Dragon Dice and are selling (relatively?) new sets for it.
My dice are long gone, except for 1 or 2, so I splurged and grabbed an incomplete set from ebay. If nothing else, the d8s can still be used in a regular gaming session as they are numbered. If they had only numbered the other sizes I could be adding some sweet looking dice to my tabletop gaming sessions ;)
