Dice 🎲


(Edokdyshi) #1

Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew of a good website to buy dice from, Europe / Scandinavian company or that ship internationally at not too high of cost!? Thank you!

Check out Die Hard Dice, apparently they have discounted international shipping.
Otherwise I’d just use Amazon UK.

If you want some cheap dice, go for those X times 7 sets on Amazon (they contain a D4, D6, D8, D10, D10%, D12 and D20 per color) and look for as many transprarent colors in the package as possible! “Imperfections” like air bubbles inside the material unbalance a die, but are easily visible in transparent ones and often get tossed!

(Same product on amazon.co.uk,.fr,.it and .es!)

This is a pretty good example on Amazon Germany. 10.99€ for 49 dice? Must be shit! Might be, but this set has only 2 opaque colors. I’ve bought similar sets twice (35 and 42), and only one transparent die was Crappy McCrapface (had a huge bubble). All other transparent dice were fine. I’ve tested them all for balance¹, only the one transparent die with the visible bubble was unbalanced, about 15% of my opaque dice were, too.

Both of my packages came with little velvet bags for each color and a large bag for all dice. Even if low quality, they make for a pretty cool little gift!

PSA: “Pound 'o dice” from Chessex - Don’t buy!

A friend of mine bought one of those. There’s 1 guaranteed full set of 7 dice and the rest is random. He got only two D8 in total. And he got a lot of “pretty” dice, however nearly all are opaque. Half of his opaque dice are unbalanced.




¹ = Warm water, saturate with salt. Die floats, tip and see what number moves to top, if the same number is on top all the time => die is unbalanced

I don’t know if this will help you, but I post it anyway.

This shop from Germany offers over 2k different dice. Back when I had real people to play with, I ordered there multiple times, with no issues. Of course, I live in Germany and this online shop seems to have no multi-lingual options, but they ship almost everywhere.
