NEED DICE
« on: December 05, 2013, 06:29:55 AM »

So, I'm looking for some new dice to have proper dice on hand for Pulp Alley. Ideally, I'd like to pick up five each of D6s, D8s, D10's, and D12's, in two colours, for a total of 40 dice (all numbered, not dotted).

Went on down to the local gaming store, where they had some sets of 1 D4, D6, D8, D10, D12 and D20, for $6 each for a crappy ugly set or $10 each for a nicer set. Buying an ugly set to get me the dice I need would cost me $60 and nice set would be an absurd $100!!! They also had some ugly bargain bin loose dice for 75 cents each, but those are all mismatched so never mind getting two sets of five in the types I needed.

God damn, shit be expensive, yo.

Anyone suggest any alternate ideas for me to get what I need? Hell, if you're one of those dice-whores and you have extra dice that meet what I need, I might even make an offer or trade MTG cards or something.

In that case, I think I'm paying for a lot of stuff I don't need. Looking at that pack, I don't know that I'd get 5/colour/each type I need anyway.

You know, I never actually finished my form to get mine.
I should get on that.

I have a set of her 1/2" aluminum gaming dice, they are pretty great. Not sure if she'll be offering the more exotic ones like tungsten outside of kickstarter, but right now she has aluminum and brass in her store.
