D&D Dice Sets
We have a lot of individual polyhedral dice for sale, but if you're a serious roleplayer you know you have to have at least one 7-piece set of D&D dice.
D&D dice sets always include the following types of dice:
- 4-sided dice (d4) - Generally a pointy tetrahedron shape, the d4 is notorious for being difficult to pick up and for not rolling particularly well. It's best to shake them in your palm before rolling them, or give them a good high toss in the air on their way to the table.
- 6-sided dice (d6) - With 7-piece D&D dice sets, the d6s are always numeral dice, showing the numbers 1 through 6 instead of having spots. This makes them match more effectively with the other numbered dice.
- 8-sided dice (d8)
- 10-sided dice (d10) - A dice numbered 0 through 9. The 0 is typically counted as a 10, not a zero.
- 10-sided percentile dice (d%) - Also sometimes called a d100, or the "tens" dice, the percentile dice is used in combination with the d10 to roll numbers between 1 and 100.
- 12-sided dice (d12)
- 20-sided dice (d20) - Of all the dice in a D&D dice set, the d20 is the most used and is also the most iconic.
We could maybe get away with carrying only a few styles or colors of D&D dice, but what's the fun in that? If you're going to be rolling for your epic character, you really should do it with some style. And we've got a huge array of colors and styles of dice to choose from. Everybody has different tastes and preferences, so no matter what your favorite color or which type of character you're playing we've got you covered with some dice sets that you'll be more than happy to add to your collection.
Choosing D&D Dice
Dice are a necessary tool for nearly all roleplaying games. But they're not just a tool. Along with the players, they rest at the heart of the game. They are the final arbiter. The hand of fate. Like the three Moirai, guiding the story and the destiny of the characters.
As such, most roleplayers take their choice of dice seriously.
Choosing the right D&D dice is a matter of taste, of course. Finding the right color, transparency, weight, size, or finish can be vitally important. The D&D dice set can be a physical reflection of the character being played, or symbolic of the setting, or they can make a personal statement about the player themselves.
