We were at a local Target today looking for the "Munchkin of Oz" card set for my 31-going-on-13 daughter (who has been collecting Munchkin sets). While eyeing the various games and stuff, I noticed a tubular container titled "Dice Bonanza." It claimed to contain 60 dice and it was obvious by looking through the clear plastic sides that it contained various types. I picked one up for a cost of $10.29 USD (slightly over 17 cents a die).

The label claimed the colors and sizes may vary. The one I got did contain a total of 60 dice with this breakdown:
31 D6 with pips in assorted colors and 4 sizes
3 D6 with numbered faces
4 "alphabet" D6 (letters on the faces, 4 presumably giving you close to the English alphabet)
4 D6 with colored dots (3 colors; 2 sides for each)
2 D6 with recessed faces and each face a different color
5 D6 with poker card sides
3 D4
2 D8
2 D10
2 D12
2 D20

Now my wife just rolled her eyes at this purchase as I am not lacking in dice, but I was curious in what I would get. If you are looking to get a variety of dice cheat, this may be a good pick.

I bought this same thing once when I forgot my dice for a convention game and needed loads of D6. It was certainly worth it for me. The contents are random, I got more D6 in mine than you did and no D8's or D10's.

I picked up the same thing. I have trouble walking by dice without buying them.

I found the same set at Walgreens for $8.95 USD with the same results for the dice types. Exact same contents in both that I bought except that I wound up with an extra small black D6 in one package.
