Does anyone have the metal or stone dice?

I have used metal dice, which look very nice, but roll like cannon balls, knocking things over!

I don't have and have not used either.

However, I do have wooden dice. Way back in the early 2000s, they gave out free cloth dice bags at one of the HMGS, Inc. cons. I bought a whole bunch of wooden dice to put in them. My kids were little at the time and we learned to take dice and paper with us to restaurants. We played Yahtzee while waiting to order our food and again while waiting for our food to arrive. The reason for this long story is that the wooden dice are lighter and don't make as much noise when rolled on a table. We could keep the kids happy and not disturb everyone around us.

I've had brass and lead, but any I haven't already gotten rid of are in the flea market pile. As herkybird says, a little awkward for ordinary use.

I have had a pair of rather ugly brass dice for ages. And I picked up a few dozen funky metal "IronDie" tennish years ago.

I have regular and irondie metal dice. No stone dice.

I don't want these cubes of destruction launched on my gaming table.

No, but I have a bone one that I got at a Viking re-enactment event.

I have wooden dice & one set of lead dice made from musket balls (never use them) that my lovely wife bought me.

In just bought a pair of stone dice in a rock shop in Colorado while I was on vacation. I don't know if I'll use them in a game, but it amuses me to have them.

No but I want some depleted plutonium dice.

I have aluminum D6 dice. They are ok, light enough not to destroy anything they roll against. Still I use plastic numbered D6 and D10s most of the time. No stone dice, they might be distructive to my 15mm armies? We roll on the table so all players can see the result.

If anyone wants dice made out of silver, I can help them out.

Moonbeast20 Jun 2018 6:39 a.m. PST

I have Jade and Bloodstone dice, no metal though.

Roderick Robertson Fezian20 Jun 2018 9:44 a.m. PST

I have brass D6's that we used at Ren. Faire, but not on the gaming table!

Rogues120 Jun 2018 1:43 p.m. PST

I have some stone dice I got in the Garden of the Gods in Colorado a few years ago. Large, heavy and not used on the regular game table.

No but I have a bone die with horn pips and horn die with bone pips. They roll the same but I like them.

It was a thing for boys in shop class to make wooden dice back when I was that age (but I took typing instead, and I still have all of my fingers today). I had a pair that always rolled 7 or 11 -- 5s on one and 6s and 2s on the other. That's all, though. All of my dice now are whatever plastic materials they make dice out of.
