DCC RPG Dice

Post by DM Cojo » Sun Aug 04, 2013 5:54 pm

I would love to see Goodman Games offer their own set of dice for DCC RPG. Maybe you can contract with a dice vendor? You could do sets of standard polyhedral, "funky" set, and a full set combining the two smaller sets. I have a set of Gamescience funky dice, a ton of sets of Chessex regular polyhedral, and a set of dice from Geonomic games that do funky numbers...but I want a complete set of matching dice for my DCC RPG games! Maybe a kickstarter for them would be a good option too?

Agreed. I'd love to see some official DCC dice. The problem is (I think) that getting into the dice business isn't a simple process and Goodman Games wants to focus on the printing aspect of the game. I think someone would have to find a connection with a custom-dice company and then make it work from there.

That was my first dice bag, at age 8 I can assure you the bottle was taken care of by pops :)

We used to buy bottles of the stuff for my wife's boss with the condition that he would return the bag for my kids to use as dice bags. I don't drink the stuff, but love the bag!

Now that the game has a lot of printed module support, I am more open to a dice set. We'll see what comes of that...

Please. I just bought a set online, and the d14 is HUGE and not available in the color of the rest of the dice.

I need a nice tight set from Goodman Games.

I love the look of those dice. Who makes them, if you don't mind me asking? It seems like all I ever stumble into are the Zocchi/gamescience sets (which I love too).

I picked them all up at Gen Con last year. They're Koplow dice.

The d7/d14 issue is the one missing link...well, that and a variety of colors in things like d10-numbered-1-5-twice. I actually found a series of different colors of d6-numbered-1-3-twice...not great colors, but at east some variation. But that only d14 and d14-numbered-1-7-twice that are "standard" shapes were the large dice at Koplow (and I think some others might have had some too).

However, at a couple of games, folks did have the smaller d14's so I'll be on the hunt a bit for them today...

Ah OK thanks, I see Koplow dice as individual pieces on Amazon occassionally, but I'll have to hunt around and see if I can't find a retailer that carries them; it looks like Kaplow only deals in wholesale.

I prefer the d7 as a d14 numbered twice, a d3 as a d6 numbered twice, and a d5 as a d10 numbered twice. But the koplow stuff is just so huge! If there would make them in a smaller size that would be much better.

Be glad you can find any of the funky dice. Scarcer than hen's teeth where I live.
