Looking Back at Dragon Dice

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.

They weren't.

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 ;)


  1. Ha. I still have of those somewhere. I still don't why I bothered to pick up a set.

  2. because it was cool looking dice, thats why ;)

  3. New sets of Derpy Dice? Oh, be still my beating heart.

    What's the betting that SFR's stock-in-trade are actually the disinterred hundreds-of-thousands of unsold dice that Ryan Dancey talked about clogging up TSR's warehouse when WOTC took over?

  4. Hmmm....I seem to be in the minority on this one. I liked the game just for the simple rolling dice aspect. You didn't have to buy a ton of miniatures or other accessories to play.

  5. I also bought into Dragon Dice. I also never got to play it.

  6. Just Recently got back into Dragon Dice, and got my wife, and a few friends involved. http://dragondicerebirth.blogspot.com/ my blog i started recently about it. There are 2 major play's for this game a year, one of them being GenCon. Got questions about Dragon Dice? Feel free to ask I'll be happy to help!
