Whether you're a gamer or a collector, you can never have enough dice!

Our aim is to create a set of Viking-themed polyhedral dice. This set of dice will fit seamlessly into any Norse or Viking themed RPG setting! All we need to make them a reality is your help!

Sorry but the dice are awful.

I agree – sort of. They are pretty and thematically impressive but nigh on impossible to read, especially quickly.

That – for me – is a self-defeating own goal and renders them unusable (by me: YMMV)

"nigh on impossible to read"

self defeating

Not horrid but cluttered visually. The numbering is small and in the background color. My suggestion: enlarge the numbers in the blue color and make the Viking symbols hollow outlines to put them more into the background. I would still have trouble buying these dice as they look like printing on a flat surface instead of engraving. I'd be worried about the printing rubbing off in a dice bag after a few years.

Ian happy for the people who buy these dice and enjoy them and wish the project every success, but I don't like them.

Good idea, though.

the KS says "prepainted and deeply engraved" I think they are showing a computer model rather than the actual dice, so they look a little flat.

These look a bit more readable than some of the Q-Workshop dice do. But still harder to read than I like.

I wish them all the best with their project.
