While playing games online can have appeal, there’s something about that tactile experience of sitting around a table with friends, rolling lots of math rocks (aka dice) to figure out what in the world is going on in the story you’re building. Well, why not bring some of that online flash into your game with Pixels Dice?(more…)
Well, at least, when it’s actually ok and safe for you to take your game on the road. I seem to be featuring a number of TTRPG accessories as of late, and I blame it on the resurgence of the popularity of it as a game genre, as well as playing it with friends at work (virtually, these days). One of the latest to cross my crystal orb is the Dungeon Box Pocket.(more…)
Earlier this week, we told you about a dice vault Kickstarter program that I felt was pretty clever. When I was writing that up, the company I had in the back of my mind was Wyrmwood, as they’ve gotten stuck there as supporters of some of my favorite real-play DnD podcasts. Well, now they’ve branched out from creating dice trays and vaults, to making actual dice.(more…)
See, I told you yesterday that it’s a great time for dice collectors of all stripes. Yesterday we talked about a cool resin dice set. What if you want something that’s heavier? That’s metal! And if you want a more-compact metal set, then this campaign for the Wrymling Dice is what you need to look at.(more…)
Back when I first started into the world of tabletop roleplaying games, it felt like my dice choices were limited. I had some handed down from my cousin, and eventually it was picking up some basic colors from the local shop. Well, now, there is an amazing array of makers out there creating lovely custom stuff. One of ones that caught my eye recently is the Keyfish Crit by Green Leaf Geek.(more…)
If you’re a dedicated role-player you’ll know the satisfaction of holding a wonderful little bag of dice. The cold density of a D20, the oddness of a 4-sided, the perfection of a six-sided die – all of those are important to the gaming process.
But what if you want to automate the process? There’s the new Dice app for iOs and the Apple Watch that replaces that Crown Royal sack with something that looks like what Lobot would use on Cloud City.
The app, available for $1.99, lets you choose dice and then roll them individually or all at once. Need dice on your wrist? You can access the app on your Apple Watch and get a quick saving throw on the fly. While nothing beats the feel of four little geometric pieces of luck in your hand, this is the next best thing.
