just one. I need to buy four foam D6's in two colors. Maybe Fall In?

Texas Jack27 Sep 2017 12:42 p.m. PST

I think I have some fuzzy ones hanging from my rear view. Don't know if they are foam or not.

John Leahy27 Sep 2017 12:44 p.m. PST

Yes, 2 large blue d6 given to me by my oldest son.

MajorB27 Sep 2017 12:50 p.m. PST

What on earth would I want foam dice for?

The Beast Rampant27 Sep 2017 12:55 p.m. PST

Yes, two. I got them at Target for $1 USD each. My five year old plays with them.

Wackmole9 Supporting Member of TMP27 Sep 2017 1:21 p.m. PST

yes and my 1 year BABY die roller loves them!!!!

Timbo W27 Sep 2017 1:33 p.m. PST

I have one thats a rubber…. Eraser for you US folks, I use it for erasing, not rolling!

Chuckaroobob27 Sep 2017 1:36 p.m. PST

Yes, I bought a few at the $1 USD store.

RudyNelson27 Sep 2017 2:06 p.m. PST

No, nor do I sell them.

KPinder27 Sep 2017 3:07 p.m. PST

I have 2 that I got as a gag gift at work.

Personal logo Bashytubits Supporting Member of TMP27 Sep 2017 3:29 p.m. PST

nope, I used to but someone took them.

pzivh43 Supporting Member of TMP27 Sep 2017 3:36 p.m. PST

i have 2----one red and one black. I use them to mark the turn for each side (Red over black 1 is Soviet turn 1, and Black over red is German turn 1. Etc.

Ragbones Supporting Member of TMP27 Sep 2017 4:15 p.m. PST

Yup. Like pzivh43, I occasionally use them as turn markers.

Oberlindes Sol LIC27 Sep 2017 4:24 p.m. PST

What on earth would I want foam dice for?

If you have to ask that, you have never owned a Camaro!

Cacique Caribe Inactive Member27 Sep 2017 4:24 p.m. PST

Never even heard of them. What kind of foam?

Dan

Personal logo Bobgnar Supporting Member of TMP27 Sep 2017 5:03 p.m. PST

Yes. Nice to use with players who cannot seem to avoid hitting figures with the heavy plastic ones. Not the giant ones, but pretty much standard size. Here is an example in our St. Patrick vs King Arthur game

I have big ones too, that we use for turn marking.

Cacique Caribe Inactive Member27 Sep 2017 5:16 p.m. PST

"Our St. Patrick vs King Arthur game"

Lol. That must have been interesting! Was Merlin there too?

You don't use foam dice in a Camaro! You use fuzzy dice, sheesh you heathen.

ZULUPAUL Supporting Member of TMP28 Sep 2017 2:32 a.m. PST

Yes, I bought them as a prank, used for one roll in one game for a "big" (important) roll.

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP28 Sep 2017 5:35 a.m. PST

The question is in the wrong scale.

I have 2" foam dice and 6" foam dice.

What on earth would I want foam dice for?q>

We use the 6" foam dice for yard games, including "The Super Economy All You Can Eat Ninety-Nine Cent Kaiju Buffet" where the players' bodies are kaiju miniatures in a city of cardboard box buildings.

The 2" dice are good state markers because they don't bump as easily as small dice and they are visible to everyone all the way across the table.

We also use the 2" foam dice on the table to roll for pirate games. 28mm pirate figures use regular dice; the ships get the big dice.

Personal logo Zeelow Supporting Member of TMP28 Sep 2017 7:36 a.m. PST

Nope. But I do have some 1/2" white rubber eraser dice with black pits! Found them at an art supply store many years ago.

Oberlindes Sol LIC28 Sep 2017 11:55 a.m. PST

You don't use foam dice in a Camaro! You use fuzzy dice, sheesh you heathen.
<\q>

Fuzzy dice are just foam dice with fuzzy exteriors.

You are quite correct that naked foam dice don't belong in a Camaro. Naked cheerleader, on the other hand: Tango, do we have a miniature of that?

rmaker28 Sep 2017 3:25 p.m. PST

Yes.

coopman29 Sep 2017 4:26 a.m. PST

Yes, a big D6.

??? What's a Camaro?

Last Hussar18 Nov 2017 12:59 p.m. PST

I think he's a pundit on Sky Sports.

Wulfgar18 Nov 2017 5:26 p.m. PST

I use them to mark casualties for my 6mm armies.

Rallynow Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2017 12:08 p.m. PST

Fuzzy Dice? No!
Camaro? Yes!
69 Z28 Double Yes!!

Andy Skinner Supporting Member of TMP28 Nov 2017 1:47 p.m. PST

Yes. I got them for a ship game I was going to play on the lawn with home-made wooden ships. I never got around to it, and it was clear I was more interested than they were. That I never got around to it points out there wasn't a lot of interest…
