What would your custom dice set look like?
With the increasing popularity of tabletop gaming, fun and unique dice sets are getting easier to find. On top of that, dice-making kits are available to crafty players. If you could design your ideal dice set, what would they look like? Any cool features like liquid centers or interesting materials like stone or metal?
Personally I love the dice that have itty bitty miniatures in them! I’d love a set in my favorite colors (black, sky blue, hot pink) with skulls in the center. Or maybe bats!!! And definitely glitter, I love glitter dice. Glow-in-the-dark numbering would be really cool too.
Tell me what you’d design!
@DMMars I hadn’t seen them but I just looked them up and they’re so awesome!!! People are so creative, I love it! You’re right, they’d be perfect for a pirate campaign, that would be a lot of fun.
Classically, I'm a fan of transparent metal fleck/glitter dice. But for a gift, I received clear dice with rubber ducks inside! They're vicious quackers and I love them.
For design, I'd make clear dice, but have them with a hollow core filed with a small bit of water. Then I'd add an eyeball that rolls inside that core, but it's weighted on the opposite side of the pupil. This, with the water to keep it bobbing around and moving smoothly, would cause the eye to always look upwards at the number I rolled!
Obviously, this wouldn't work on a d4, but I could always have that one with an appropriate number of eye symbols like the Eye of Horus and maybe tint the die to look beige/yellow like a pyramid.
@Alexander-Salkin VERY cool idea! I'd buy 'em!
I can NEVER decide. I know, typical gemini... but like... I would need a dice set for every mood lol.
I'm late to this, but I also love dice with tiny things inside. I'm always seeing unique dice sets come up on IG; I've recently seen some cool nature-y ones. I also like glow-in-the-dark, glitter, or hollow core ones filled with colored water. I think my perfect set would depend on my character and the game I was currently playing. In my current game, I think I'd love some transparent dice flecked with gold, with small leaves and vines swirled within (or carved into them), with a little deer inside, representing my character.
