Which company makes the best dice?

Cerdic Supporting Member of TMP24 Mar 2017 1:14 p.m. PST

None of 'em. They all roll equally badly for me….

I have only noted the company name when I have got poor dice. Except for the small number of bad ones all the rest seem much of a muchness.

Define "best"…

The piggiest ones with the most characterful sixes are:

although they don't seem to come with any guarantee of producing the desired result at any given point in time.

Chessex. If they're rolling bad, I just swap 'em out for a different color. I keep small ones in a Wyrmwood box for all my Rampant games. I used to have some I could just toss across the room when I still played DBA. They're indestructible

Best? Don't know what that is. Favorite …

Thank you Col Bogey
We were the ones that started the idea of putting the company logo on the 6 instead of the 1


Ney Ney24 Mar 2017 3:16 p.m. PST

I like my simple chessex ones. I strongly dislike ones with a picture in place of a 1 , put it in the 6 if anywhere.

Define "best." Chessex are perfectly serviceable, but what I actually look for are (always) number of sides and color and (sometimes with D6's) size or special marking.

Casinos or Gamescience.

Dollar Tree

Most of my D6's are from Chessex.

Weddier25 Mar 2017 8:10 p.m. PST

This article fixed it for me – Vegas dice

JLA10526 Mar 2017 5:39 p.m. PST

Another vote for casinos and Gamescience.

Gamescience, although Chessex is quite serviceable and dollar store dice work great when chucking handfuls at a time.

I'm quite fond of my Moose d6's by Koplow.

They also make a squirrel d6. They make a nice matched set, those two, you know …
