What is your favorite dice color?

Red unz roll fasta!

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP06 Jul 2017 11:39 a.m. PST

Red with white pips followed by white with black pips.

But there must always be at least three--the regular dice, the elite company and the half-strength firing group. If you roll for them in sequence, you do not get an adequate fall of dice.

Black, that way I can see the "1" I rolled clearly when needing a "6"

I'm quite fond of the smoke grey crystal ones from Chessex.

Black are my favorite. Most days they really do me proud. Other days, not so much.

shirleylyn06 Jul 2017 1:29 p.m. PST

Bright green marked black.

Red like the blood of my enemies, with white pips like the bones of my enemies.

Chessex translucent blue-green. Probably not the easiest to read, but I love fiddling with them.

Something to be said--especially in "buckets of dice" games--for dice which match the army in some way, and in games which require a variety of dice, for each type to have its own color.

Shagnasty Supporting Member of TMP06 Jul 2017 2:27 p.m. PST

Sky blue with white pips. No color rolls well for me.

The multi-colo(u)r swirly ones.

Traditionalist – white with black pips

I am with Flashman on this – old school dice all the way

I picked up a pair of bone and horn dice. where the pips are made of grey horn and the white is bone. they also have them in the other color combo. I cant recall who made them but they were at GenCon in Indy two years ago.

I like to match colors of dice with troop uniform colors sometimes, or national colors -- when this is feasible. Other than that, I have a fondness for bright contrasting dice colors that stand out easily on the tabletop (e.g., green is not the most visible choice on a European battlefield) and also silly dice like the pink sort that have elephants for a "1", and the black and white ones with skunks for "1", that sort of thing.

Like peper909, I like to match the die color with the units.

Winston Smith07 Jul 2017 4:39 p.m. PST

Certainly NOT bronze.
I have an issue with that die, and it knows it.

piper90907 Jul 2017 10:18 p.m. PST

I have quietly collected a bunch of swirly, multicolored, psychedelic dice for that fabled future "Hippies vs. Police" urban riot game I intend to create and play one day.

The PO-lice will roll stolid, no-frills, law-abiding blue dice, of course.

Chuckaroobob08 Jul 2017 1:09 p.m. PST

I try to match my dice color with my army paint scheme. I have too many dice, by the way.

14th NJ Vol Supporting Member of TMP08 Jul 2017 6:57 p.m. PST

I also like dice to match the army color. But, as my eyes have aged darker die body & lighter numbers / pips seem to work better for me. Unfortunately pretty dice don't help my usually poor dice rolling results.
