Dice Roundup - I Went Shopping for Dice to Give Away at Shire Con (and bought more than intended)

Tonight I went looking for dice to give away Shire Con next month. I gave away a set for the best death at Gary Con this past March and I'm thinking about giving a set to each player at my Swords & Wizardry Light session. So a shopping I went at Amazon.

Below are some of my possibles that I looked at as well as the one dice I decided on. I left commentary with each. You may find you like something that I wasn't fully satisfied with. Then i found glow in the dark dice. Oh, and a metal set I simply must own. They will match my chainmail dice bag perfectly :)

Note, below are links to The Tavern's Amazon affiliate store. If you purchase from these links, a small portion of the monies you spend will go to support The Tavern. And beer. Mmmmmm.

Great price. Bland looking dice. Ivory dice set is pretty much unreadable. A dice bag for each set of dice and a larger bag to rule them all and in the darkness bind them...

I have found my dice set. These are my colors and this set will be mine. My precious.


  1. we have been giving dice to new plsyers so they have no bad mojo.

  2. Check out Die Hard Dice...great dice sets and some very cool portable dice trays!

  3. The Bescon glow-in-the-dark set has to come from China. Instead, I got 6 sets for a hair over $13 - also from China.

  4. I got burned by glow-in-the-dark dice before... some sci-fi ones that were supposed to absorb some kind of UV light and then glow. The sun wasn't good enough. I didn't bother buying a special lamp for them. They also came from China.

  5. My main set are GameScience glow-in-the-dark, pale green like the Loc-Nar. I only buy GS, usually only from Lou at GenCons, but the prices on his web store aren't ridiculously high.
