Imagine that you've bought a boxed miniatures game, and it comes with generic six-sided dice. What do you do with the dice?

* keep them in the game box
* add them to your dice collection

Keep them in the box.

Keep them in the box with the game.

I've got plenty of other loose dice.

Keep them in the game box

Like Thresher, I am not exactly short of six sided dice

Keep them in the box. As all above.

If they are just routine d6 I throw them in the collective.

Keep them in the box. I often game at other folks' places, so it's good to know a game is ready-to-play.

They stay in the box. Old-timers remember the late 70's, when some boardgames were shipped with a note, explaining that due to the high cost of oil, dice would no longer be included in games.

I am not making that up.

Keep them in the box.

All dice go in the appropriate bag, which then goes in the dice box.

I do need a bigger box. But what is this "box game" of which you speak?

Pull them out to put with my dice collection. Find them in a random pile 6 months later.

Keep them in the box.

In the box.
Unless it's Yahtzee. Then I steal the dice and throw away the box.

if game seems to have collectability keep them seperated
