The subject for Day 9 of the #RPGaDAY2023 challenge is about dice. Specifically what is your favorite dice.
Well, I have a set of Chessex dice that is red and black. I think the reason I use them a lot is because I still have the plastic container that they came in. So I know the origin and they are easy to grab out of the dice bag. I’ve got a set of Dungeon Crawl Classics dice that have the odd shapes that I picked up for a Mutant Crawl Classics game (that was scheduled, but didn’t happen). I even own a set of dice from the Dollar Tree. I was also tempted to state my Jason Fox lucky dice that I had picked up a few years ago.
But I think my favorite set is the North-to-South gaming dice that I received (and reviewed) last year. This would be the set of normal dice not the mini-set. I’m always worried that the smaller dice are going to get lost or knocked off the table by cats. I did use this set while running the OSR game for 5e players.
Also the nice thing about getting and using dice is that when they are bad, you can always put them in the Lynx RPG Dunce Dice Chair when they are bad.
Do you have a favorite set of dice? Do you have lots of the clicky-clack shiny math rocks? Tell me about it. This article is open for discussion on the TardisCaptain dot Com Discord server. You can also email me at Carl (at) TardisCaptain.com with any comments.
