DragonfireWork1: Now available, our Blind Rage box which benefits @BlindTemple and his quest to get a new kidney. Each box is lovingly hand made then subjected to laser fire to get that orcish battlerager look. https://t.co/rXIdphNOm0


A link to a tweet instead of a product page where we can get info on purchasing? Brilliant!

This is it, right?

They're just hawking the box. Dice sold separately.

Very cool.

But their website needs help. Not all wood choices give you a preview, and the 'Wood picker' page doesn't really represent how it looks on the final boxes. And there's no real way to see what the different choices for the lid look like. Once again, there are a few previews, but they aren't labeled, so I don't know which which.

Still probably get one, especially since my older stepson is moving back to town, so we can get a gaming group together again.

Anyone have a suggestion for some cool dice or a favorite set to go inside?

Honestly, something cast in metal. I've had the worst luck with unbalanced dice throwing very consistent threes or sevens.

Barring the $80-100/set, go with something plastic and most importantly, transparent. These have the best chance of being well balanced, as you can quite literally see any major imperfections. D20s are the worst culprits (closest to a sphere), so buying more of those than any other is the biggest thing.

Gravity dice are really pretty, and cast aluminum with machine custom depth drilling. All the plastic ones I've used (Chessex, Dice Lab) have been hit and miss.

I know a couple Very Serious Gamers who swear by GameScience dice. They're incredibly sharp edged, like casino dice, so that the odds are fair.

After a couple long gaming sessions at a friend's house I realized that no one had rolled a single 20 despite hours of play.  I took a closer look at the dice and realized the 20 side was significantly larger than the opposing 1 side.  I was full of faux rage.

That depends on how many questions you plan on asking about where it came from, I'd imagine.

When I graduated college, my DnD group threw me a party. The cake was a cluster of dice, all rolled one. They reveled in my unnaturally bad dice rolls.

Gotta love levelupdice.  Just have to watch the wallet when I see their booth at a convention.  Too easy to drop one or two K when I visit.
