Wiz Dice sells a large bag of dice for $20US/~$30AU. It contains several complete sets. I got 15 or so complete sets and two incomplete sets. There were a few (less than 10) dice where some numbers aren't completely painted but they're still completely fine (just a bit hard to read in low light).
Having a large number of complete sets has a couple of benefits:
If you're on a really tight budget, see who else from your group wants to pitch in and split a bag with you. That's the nice thing about getting the "Bag of sets."
I use rolls as the "point of no return" with player decisions. Once a roll has been made furthering a player's decided course of action, there's no take-backs (except for stuff like wish, of course).
As far as conversation goes, I tell players that I expect combat directions to take no more than 6 seconds (the in-game length of a turn). If you want to outline a more detailed combat plan than simple directions or commands, then I tell the player that they have to forgo an offensive actions on their turn (Attack, spells, but they can still take Dodge) to reflect the distraction.
With out-of-combat actions (like telling the face which direction to take a conversation or suggesting they try deception or intimidation or the like) then after a few warning "Did you just say that out loud in front of the guard?" lines, I'll just start treating them like in-character comments and have the NPCs react accordingly.
Oh, and for dice, go buy the Wiz Dice set. It's generally comprised of 15 or so complete sets so you've got plenty of dice to go around and have plenty for those 10+d6 spells later.
Battlemats are handy for sketching out unplanned encounters or preparing one big encounter in advance, but if you usually have multiple scenes in a session, taking the time to redraw the battle mat can be time-consuming. It sounds low-tech, but printing out maps on paper and then just arranging them under a desk protector works great. If you have access to a large-format printer, even better. If not, check with your local copy store. Prices for single large prints on plain paper are usually pretty cheap. If your group likes the idea, then have everybody chuck in a couple of bucks per session to cover the costs.
Wiz Dice is one thousand percent better than pound of dice. No factory seconds (or rejects), which is all that come in the pound. They just scoop one pound of factory rejected dice out of a barrel and ship it. Wiz Dice are all firsts, and instead of getting random-ass dice, you get 15 or so complete sets of varying colors.
Not really, but it helps if you're all new if you finish the 1st book before delving into the next in the series. I've had a group go straight from LMoP directly to RoT, but it took a bit of work.
The big problem with HotDQ is that its really flat as an adventure. The whole thing feels very uninspired next to the awesome LMoP.
I would honestly skip the whole series and go straight to Princes from LMoP. Much better, imo.
That said, grab the Starter Set, its cheap as chips, and has the dice, pregen characters, adventure and basics all in one place.
If you like the game after LMoP, THEN expand.
I would honestly grab the PHB at that point and maybe Princes. (although, to be honest, I'd grab the Monster Manual instead and make my own adventures)
Lastly, you can't go wrong with a bag of http://www.amazon.com/Random-Polyhedral-Dice-Multiple-Wiz/dp/B009R6J8RY to spread out to your players, or to keep all to yourself.
This question comes up several times. If you are looking for multiple sets, then I highly recommend the WizDice pound of dice over the chessex pound of dice. The Wiz dice set will give you multiple complete sets of dice, whereas the chessex only gives you one set with a lot of random dice varying in size. I received multiple tiny dice meant for craft projects, as well as a couple of blank dice that didn't even have numbers on them.
Mind posting which ones you got?
I remember seeing some on amazon a while ago, but they seemed low quality so I passed on them. This looks to be actually pretty good.
EDIT: nvm, I failed my perception check on the first picture...
Depends on if you're talking for just one player, or as a DM.
If you're giving a set of dice as a gift to a player I'd tend to say just one or two standard sets of 7 in different colors.
If they already play a certain class, maybe check out the spells available to them. For example, magic missile can often require rolling 3d4, or other spells require XdY (with X sometimes increasing with level).
As a DM, for my group that just started playing 5e, I bought
the 100+ Pack of Random Polyhedral Dice by Wiz Dice. Ended up with 15 sets (4/6/8/10/12/20/100) of dice in various colors. They really liked it when I just dumped a big bag out and said "ok pick out a set you like". Even had a few spare velvet bags so they could keep them together for next time.
Having the pile of spares made it easy for the times when someone rolled a crit and would roll double dice, etc. and for the price, it's a great way to jump-start a dice collection. Crown Royal bags work nicely for storing them all.
And then please go to the post office and pick up the 2000 hundred dice packs I ordered.
100 Wiz Dice random pack
I need a few D12 also. 😊
Maybe try this?
My first dice were a WizDice 100 pack and a couple other fancy sets as a christmas gift. I ended up buying a few more sets myself when I got bored of the giant bag of them, but that's just me.
Honestly it's not a big deal at the end of the day. They all (mostly) roll the same. I'd say shop around, if there are any that particularly grab you then go for it.
Edit: That said, I read some of your previous comments. If you're notoriously a bad roller you might want to get a bulk pack so you can throw them away when they inevitably betray you.
Since everyone has already said "Starter Set" or "PHB".. what else do you need?
While one set is sufficient, ultimately everyone wants their own dice. it also speeds up play when everyone isn't borrowing constantly.
For me, the perfect starter set was this set from Wiz Dice. In my FLGS, a set of dice like you mentioned ranges from about 5-7 bucks. If you buy two of those, similar to what you mentioned, you're only a bit short of this set.
When I got mine, it had 14 complete sets of dice, half of which had matching colored sets.
I've given away more dice to new players than I can remember, and I still have more than I could ever need!
Chessex has some high quality dice, but starting out you probably want to go for quantity over quality. Whenever we have a new guy and he's only got one set of dice, it can slow things down or break the pace of combat considerably when he has to roll, like 4d6 and only has a single d6. Therefore, I'd recommend getting this:
That's the one I started with - came with 7 complete color-coordinated sets and a few extra (edit: might be misremembering, could have been 12 sets)... Although you can just search "pound of dice" on amazon and find a bunch of brands that sell bulk dice.
I might just be superstitious at this point but I feel like the cloudy dice they give you always have a funky weight to them and don't land truly random. Also, this brand has smooth edges, which factors into whether the rolls are truly random. Later on you might want to get a pair of high quality Chessex dice (which have straight edges).
TL;DR - I would recommend getting the bulk die I just linked cuz you'll be needing more than a single d20 when you are rolling at advantage, have multiple attacks, etc. It's just better to have a bunch of them
You could get this from Amazon. I picked this up and you get several complete sets (I think I got 8 IIRC) and then half a dozen incomplete sets. Using the salt water test, about half seemed to be balanced pretty well. Most notably the clear ones where balanced the best.
I'm not sure on shipping options, but this is what I ordered and came with ~13 complete sets, despite it saying random.
You might have to dig deeper for some EU based companies to get lower/free shipping costs.
Alternatively, you could try signing up for Amazon Prime's trial to get free shipping - you just have to remember to cancel Prime before the end of the trial, or they will charge your CC for a whole year's subscription (which in the long run may be worth it if you plan on buying more stuff, but just thought I would leave you that FYI)
I didn't end up buying them, but these sat in my cart for a long time. I honestly don't have a use for so many dice, at least not at the present time. The reviews were really good and the price not too bad. There is one review comparing Chessex pound of dice you might be interested to read.
ya as others have said dice, I recommend this
has a bunch of complete sets and they are decent quality. I'm not a fan of chessex dice due to the fact that sets I've ordered (individually) have arrived with lots of chipping on edges and poor printing.
That wizdice pack i got didn't have any bad dice in it.
First off, the PFRSD is 100% free, so you never need to buy anything game related as far as rules. You can download and print character sheets and make your own GM screen too.
For a battlemat, you can grab a cheap as chips generic, dry-erase 2-sided flip mat online for under $10.00 shipped.
For dice, go http://www.amazon.com/Random-Polyhedral-Dice-Multiple-Wiz/dp/B009R6J8RY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1440691578&sr=8-1&keywords=dice+wiz Seriosuly, 15 full sets of dice for $20. Its all you'll ever need.
For minis. You can print out your own chits using any free image editor or buy those colored glass stones in bulk for under $5 for hundreds of them.
For well under $50, you can have a lot of stuff.
Wiz dice's 100 pack (which always has over a 100) is much much better. The dice are better quality than the reject dice that go into pound o' dice, and it's almost entirely made of complete sets (colour matched). I got 14 complete sets of 7 and an incomplete set of 5 + the one full bonus set.
And it's cheaper too.
It was on the UK-equivalent Amazon, but this is the kind of thing I went for:
You get one guaranteed set of same-colour dice in a little velvet draw-bag, then a load of other supposedly-random dice - mine had another 12-14 full sets of same-colour dice in the bag, though, along with a bunch of random dice.
I recomend getting bulk sets, specifically wizdice
I got i believe 11 full sets from that $20 bag, some of of plain (plain purple with white numbers, plain red, plain yellow) and some of em really cool (transluscent of many colors, sparkly white with gold numbers, swirly green etc)
My friend got those! And I got these. She likes hers a lot because she got so many neat different dice. I like mine a lot because I love that I have so many multiple sets.
I'm also a newbie to to DnD though I've always loved the genre.
I have a crazy amount of dice for anyone looking to get into the game with me.
I bought this back in 2013 and still haven't managed to find a game.
I also have crazy ideas for personal character arcs that could fit in with other character arcs. Plz get at me I'm so alone.
The Wiz Dice set might be what you're referring to. It's got one guaranteed set with the rest supposedly being random, but generally it'll come with around 9 or 10 full sets of dice.
I highly recommend this one because from what I got, the die are good looking, you get a ton of sets, and it's only 20$. I'm sure you'll get some nice sets
Not sure what your looking for exactly and I can't help with those sites. But check Wizdice out buy from amazon. I got 15 sets in my pack with 6 extra, I've seen some people get 17 sets. A few of the dice might be off a bit but It way worth it for $20.
Chessex does a similar pound of dice you wont get as many set though as they are random as to what they put in the bag and it's a buck or 2 more for their set, again may get a couple of dice that are off but its still a good deal.
Although to be completely honest with you, you'd probably do better to just drop $20 on http://www.amazon.com/Random-Polyhedral-Dice-Multiple-Wiz/dp/B009R6J8RY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1409459862&sr=8-1&keywords=wiz+dice+100 instead. It almost always includes a set of marbled blue that look pretty much exactly the same as the WotC dice and you get up to 15 other full sets too.
If you have enough friends buy a bag of Wizdice from Amazon. Lots of reviews on Reddit here for em. You should get several full sets and a couple incomplete ones all for 20 bucks. There will be enough dice left over to use in place of missing miniatures.
It doesn't really come with a bag you'll care about. 1 complete set comes in a pretty basic, but still nice enough, felt bag. The rest is just in a cheap plastic ziploc type bag.
The dice, though, are great. No factory 2nds, in the 100+ dice I got here I can find like 5 dice that have very minor, insignificant flaws that in no way affect the dice overall.
Great set, I'm probably going to buy another one just because.
They come in the 100ct. bags of Wizdice you can get off Amazon. I got a full set in each of my bags. http://www.amazon.com/Random-Polyhedral-Dice-Multiple-Wiz/dp/B009R6J8RY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1409531833&sr=8-1&keywords=wiz+dice+100
Follow the link. It'll be $19.99.
Less than your soul.
It depends on how much you want to spend. There are Artisan dice made from exotic woods that can be a few hundred dollars.
However, I prefer the GameScience dice, which roll well and seem to have the best distribution. However, for sheer cool factor, Q Workshop has neat designs and are only a $15 or so.
The metal ones run around $50-$60, and honestly I haven't seen any reason to get them. One recommendation though, roll them in a dice bin or something, since they can nick a table badly.
Lastly, there is Wiz Dice, a huge bag of dice for $20, in which you'll likely get at least 10 full sets.
Don't get pound of dice. It's completely random. My buddy got about 40 d6, maybe 70 total other dice, and two full sets of 7 poly.
Wiz Dice on the other hand, routinely ships 10+ full sets of 7 color-matched polyhedral dice sets, with a small handy dice pouch, for the same price.
My only experience with dice is a set of translucent purple dice I got from my local game store, but they're fairly nice for I think the 3.50$ I paid for them. They did get a little bit scratched, but that's because
A) My dog tried to eat them and
B) My dumbass brother tried to spin them but instead sent them flying across the room into metal furniture.
Besides that, I've heard these Wiz Dice are pretty good, and with the 100+ of them that means you'll get at least 14 sets, and if they do scratch, I'd rather have the fucked up dice than a fucked up table, because at least I've got other dice pouring out my ass.
So I'd recommend going to your game store and checking out what they have first. If you'd like, I can test my set of Wiz Dice and tell you how they are when I get them, they should show up on Monday.
If you're looking for dice (not that specific style) Wiz Dice 100, from what I've heard, usually contains multiple complete sets (7) of similar dice. See reviews for details.
It's kind of scary that you're going to DM without knowing what dice you'll need. That being said, this was the best deal that I found and it came with about 14 full sets, which is perfect for a new party.
yes i bought the wiz dice 100 dice pack and got 17 full 7poly dice sets in awesome colours and all good quality for £19.99 and its more dice than i could ever need! I really recommend them!
"Random" but nearly all of them include 16 sets of matched dice, factory firsts, and includes a neat dice bag.
I got mine on Amazon (USA). There are multiple sellers that may have different shipping policies: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009R6J8RY
You could also try directly from Brybelly, but I think they are more of a wholesaler:
I also found the WizDice facbook page that some more info, but mostly points back to Amazon: https://www.facebook.com/wizdice
I got them from this
If you wanted to find the individual set, the maker is Wizdice but if you got that pack you'd probably get that set. I got my friend that pack for Christmas and she got that set also
Edit: Found the set while browsing Amazon
I just got this ( https://www.amazon.com/Wiz-Dice-Random-Polyhedral-Multiple/dp/B009R6J8RY ). It came with 15 complete sets of different colors, they are good standard dice.
The white set came out of this pack from amazon.
This is the black set.
My wife got me the dice box from this company's original kickstarter.
Hope that helps!
Actually to start you can download the Basic Rules for free from D&D Beyond. That should be enough to at least get you started for reading current rules and having enough information to learn basic mechanics like combat, how to cast spells, etc. http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/basicrules
There are several free intro adventures here and there online by original writers, but this Death House one from Wizards (producers of D&D) is an official free product of theirs. It’s a prelude to their Curse of Strahd adventure, and is designed for taking new characters through level 3. https://media.wizards.com/2016/downloads/DND/Curse%20of%20Strahd%20Introductory%20Adventure.pdf
Beyond that, I recommend a set of dice (D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20, D100 (like a D10 but it counts by tens)) for every person playing. If you need them ASAP then somewhere like a local Barnes and Noble or an Amazon order will get them to you ASAP. However if you have a couple weeks, some of the eBay sellers from China have their dice sets for as low as $2. If you’re going to have a lot of dice available for players (like I did last year when I gave all my starting players two sets each), I recommend the $19.99 Wiz Dice bag linked below. You’ll get something like 14 or 15 sets and then a few mismatched dice added in. Then each player can have their own sets or you can store all of them in a candy jar ready for each game night.
Wiz Dice Random Polyhedral Dice in Multiple Colors (100 + Pack) Bundle with Wiz Dice Pouch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009R6J8RY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_ndQRCb9175K9R
Good luck to all of you!
If you are looking into getting a few sets at a cheap price I would go for the Wiz Dice "pound o' dice". With Wiz Dice you are getting factory firsts instead of chessex's seconds; which people even here said sometimes you get defective dice. Usually you end of getting at least 10, I think in mine I got 12, complete sets and you are guaranteed to get at least one complete set in a pouch.
You only really need one PHB. Normally my first sessions start with character building. Just pass the PHB around. The people who aren't making their characters should be thinking about what they want to play. Bring notecards so players can write down their more complicated abilities and spells. The only awkwardness will happen if multiple people need to look up spells or abilities. Alternatively, if your players are willing to spend a little money (maybe $10-$15) they can buy the class options they want piecemeal from D&D beyond. Even if you just use the free basic rules, they can still use the character builder.
Sharing dice will probably slow down the game more than sharing books. If you've got 20 bucks to spare, you should check out this dice bundle from Wiz Dice. When I got mine I got around 16 full matching sets.
Besides that, the rules for what a player can do an their turn in combat are worth printing.
Personally, I recommend Wiz Dice, which are similar to the one you linked. I own these and I'm happy with the matching sets and the colors I received.
But these types of dice aren't particularly balanced (and, honestly, most dice aren't). They're random enough, though. Even GameScience dice skew a bit on the high end.
Here is the desktop version of your link
You could get the Wiz Dice 100 pc. bag
or this chessex mixed set: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NLVTAMO/ref=s9_hps_bw_g21_i3
both are supposed to be factory first dice.
For 20 bucks you can get a random bag of dice that's highly regarded and usually comes with many complete, matching sets of dice: http://www.amazon.com/Wiz-Dice-Random-Polyhedral-Multiple/dp/B009R6J8RY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1455142472&sr=8-1&keywords=bag+of+dice
Or for 7 bucks more you can be guaranteed that you get complete sets: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B014242Q7Y?psc=1
>I have a 3.5e players handbook and complete warrior that my brother bought a long time ago, but never played it. We know no-one who do know how to play and we all start from scratch. I've read online that its easier for new players to start with 5e but if i have these books, maybe we could just use them. 1) what do you recomend to do?
Contrary to the 5e zeitgeist, I'm a proponent of starting with whatever edition you have handy (and of 3.5 in general), and you're in luck! D&D 3.5 came out under an ambitious open license that made public all the core information. It's contained in what is called the System Reference Document, the most friendly online version of which is probably the hypertext d20 SRD. With that, your Player's Handbook, and the optional Complete Warrior book, you have what you need for both players and the Dungeon Master to play.
However, for your first time, I would recommend a pre-made adventure. The Dungeon Master can create any adventure he wants out of the monsters and traps and such in the SRD, but it's a lot of work and takes some practice to get right. So it's best to start with something pre-made, so the new DM can focus on the basics of DM'ing. Here is an archive of free adventures you can download and run as-is. I've heard Wreck Ashore is a pretty decent 1st level adventure.
>2) what dices do we need to get either way?
You don't need to buy dice. There are online and app-based die rollers that do just fine.
That being said, it really does make for a more delightful experience if you can roll real dice, at least for me. A set like this goes for about $20, and should be enough for everyone to share.
>3) do we need to get board/minutures?
People will tell you you don't need them, but the game is written assuming you have them (regardless of edition), and many of the effects include exact details that require them. So you need some kind of way to keep track of it.
That being said, you can use a piece of grid paper and coins, or a white board and a dry-erase marker, or any of a number of online virtual table tops to do this for free or very, very little. Roll20 is a good option here, as has been mentioned.
I got a bunch of matching sets in a variety of colors and opaqueness.
You'll almost always get 13-15 full sets. Might not be the coolest, but quantity is a quality all its own.
Wiz dice will get you plenty.
I have these same die, I got them from Amazon as well except from this set: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009R6J8RY
We picked up a few of these on a tip from the local DnD crowd, thanks for pointing us in the right direction - and we hope you will stick around to see how the game pans out!
This is what we bought for our games.
Oh yeah and you will need these. Its a good deal http://www.amazon.com/Random-Polyhedral-Dice-Multiple-Wiz/dp/B009R6J8RY/ That way everyone at the table can have their own set of dice pretty easy.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/PATHFINDER-PAWNS-BESTIARY-BOX-PAIZO-PUBLISHING-LLC-/231316192117 and this to get a lot of minis for cheep. (Only if your using the grid to do your battles on if your doing Minds eye then you wont need them)
Get Wiz Dice and buy a pound of dice. You're probably going to get ~10 complete sets versus Chessex where you might get a complete set or two.
The full set you got on the starter set is technically enough, but that will involve passing around dice each turn and rerolling the same die several times sometimes. Whatever you have to do to get playing, though, man.
Each Player should, ideally, have their own d20. At least four of the other dice is a good starting point. If you think you're going to continue DM'ing, strongly consider getting a bulk set of dice like Wiz dice or Chessex, as you will often need/want to provide dice for new/forgetful players.
Also these US: $19.99 - they claim to use 1st's instead of 2nd's that Chessex uses for their dice:
Here's a link to the Amazon page.
I found it here but this may work for you as well.
Not sure what you mean by board? You can use your imagination for creatures/placement. However if you want a mat to place figures (or tokens of some sort, coins, dice/etc) Chessex makes various types of battlemats. You probably want to make sure you get the one with squares. Depending on the mat type you will probably want markers. Normally flexible mats use wet erase markers. Just check what they recommend for whatever mat you get.
As to dice. You need d20, d12, d10, d8, d6 and d4. Typically dice sets of this type come with 2 d10 style dice you roll to simulate 1-100.
You might try buying this. I did and it had 16 sets of dice (16 entire sets of the type I mentioned above).
You can also just get a set of dice like these.
You can get dice where ever you like, I just linked amazon.com because it's pretty common site.
Get a pound of dice.
The Wiz Dice are (from the last I saw) higher quality then the Chessex.
Also, WizDice from Amazon.
>i played 3.5 with my friends but i know for a fact it wasnt on strict game rules
Are you planning on learning to run the games, or playing in someone else's game?
If you're playing in someone else's game, get whatever is appropriate. A player's book, maybe some advanced spells or magic items books, or more character options. What you get depends on what you're playing.
If you're interested in running the games, and you're just getting started, I'd look at the Pathfinder System Reference Document. It's 3.5, rebalanced so fighters and wizards are much more equal, but still very different. It's also close enough to 3.5 that you can use source material from thirteen years of 3.0, 3.5 and Pathfinder publications.
Pathfinder came about when Wizards of the Coast moved from 3rd to 4th edition. About 20% of players didn't go along with it, and Paizo Press put out a tweaked version of 3.5 for them. All the core material you need to run a game is free in Pathfinder, unlike any other edition. You can pay for paper copies of it instead of the free digital versions, or purchase the add-ons.
Edit: Other things to consider buying:
WizDice 100+ pack of dice is supposedly a pack of 100+ random dice. A whole lot of the time it's 16 matched sets. Sometimes it's in between.
The Chessex Battle Mat is great if you want to play with minis. If you pick up some wet-erase markers too, you can sketch out an area and wipe it out with a damp paper towel.
Found the link, They also sell just D10s or D6 as well as other in random 100s
Use the 15.99 one... Got the whole bag for myself, it was well worth it. They're not even "blems" as the other bag of dice are.
I bought a bulk set of "Wiz Dice" that were in sets.
I want to say it had at least 6 complete sets, maybe 8 but I got them a year or so ago. Was a good buy and I gave a lot of them away to new players.
I've been looking around since I'm in the same boat as you, and have been looking at buying a larger quantity of sets which you might also want to look at if you want to kickstart a collection. The bigger names I've found are Chessex, Wizdice and Q-Workshop.
Wizdice has a pack of 100+ random dice (with 1 guaranteed set) for 20$ (which I'll probably buy sooner or later). Most of the reports I read say they're random sets instead of pure random dice (people getting up to 16 sets of 7 dice), but you only get solid color, see-through and pearly (no fancy frosted or speckled). They are factory seconds but not too bad (think of small imperfections like an air bubble in a see-through or not enough paint on the letters)
Chessex has a pound-o-dice for 20$, a bag of 100+ random dice. Besides the standard colors, see-through and pearl you have special stuff like 2 tone pearl, frosted, blood-spatter effect and speckles. Most reports say they're very random. You might get a large quantity of d20 and 2 d10's, they might contain mini dice and bigger dice. They could have custom dice for a certain game with the highest number switched for some graphic indicating a crit or something. You probably won't get a full same colored set (besides the guaranteed one.) They are factory seconds which means they were rejected from being put in an individual set. This might range from pretty near prefect halfsies (after making blue dice they want to make red dice, the first set still has blue plastic in them), to usable ones with a little air bubble or small dent to useless misshapen ones or dice with missing numbers.
Q-Workshop dice look really pretty (example). Very fancy. A lot more pricey. Be careful because some of them have really pretty intricate designs but are harder to read. There's a "jar of dice" with 150 dice but they cost a whopping +200$ so I haven't even looked at those.
Then there's all those artisan dice (example company). Dice made from marble or metal, probably have a lot of weight to them but I wouldn't want to roll those on a wooden or glass table. Dice made of wood, looks really fancy but I would guess that their "trueness" can be a lot worse than an air bubble in a plastic die. As you can guess those are very expensive.
Finally with the rise of 3d printers we get 3d printed dice. Amazing looking, amazing price.
That seems stupid expensive for a set of dice when you can get at least seven complete sets for $20.
Not a bad deal for the price and it's great for new players. Older players will want prettier dice, most likely.
