    Here's a quote from William K.'s Amazon review of this item:
    "This new set has three different number ones on them. On most of the dice there is the straight up and down "bar" which I prefer, and then the four sided dice has a one with a little flag at the top. The 12 sided dice has several numbers different from the rest of the set. The number ones on it have the flag and the serif at the bottom. The numbers should have all been consistent to make a perfect set."

    10 inconsistent blue dice and a (admittedly nice) bag for $10-13 (possibly + shipping)

    If you are buying it for the bag it may be worth it, but the dice are not. You can buy a MATCHING set of 7 blue dice on Chessex for 3.50 and a box of 12 d6s for 3.50.

    On EBay you can get dice for even cheaper. I got a great-looking set of gold dice on there for under $5.

    Hi im Stormcrow77 and im a dice junkie.
    I used to not beable to walk into a game store without bying a set of dice. I have hundreds.

    Then a little more then 3 years ago i went to a local comic shop on break from jury duty and came across crystal castes metal dice and right then and there i pulled out my credit card and bought them. I have never used anything else since. i love them.
    For those of you who dont know Crystal caste makes dice from lots of diffrent things like meteorite ,bone ,silver and gold.
    They are a bit $$$ but i can not say enough good things about them.

    Hers a link to the ones i have.

    I wonder if I could get them to make some dice out the Alibates Agatized Dolomite I have?

    I'm into flint knapping and I've made a lot of points out of obsidian but never thought to make dice out of them, the snow flake obsidian dice are sweet.

    I think I just might become a dice junky.

    Wow those are really cool. I think I might plunk down some money on one of these sets. Right now, I'm using a gold-colored set I got off of ebay which I absolutely love, but metal dice? Bone dice? How sweet is that?

    OK I'm looking at the Brass dice and it says "A complete 7 piece set of metal fantasy dice with a brass look."
    Does that mean they are plastic and just painted to look like brass or are they real brass?

    There steel with a "brass" look the copper dice are like this as well.
    I think this is becuse brass and copper are softer metals .

    I have a set of the Brass Metal dice myself, and I love em. Be careful though, because they come in different sizes and might be smaller than you imagine. I wanted standard size dice at 16mm. Although, I am considering picking up a set of the silver plated dice at 14mm. They're a bit pricey though, so that's a tough sell to the wife.

    I've put in a request for Christmas. I would also love the large d20, man I bet that thing is heavy. You could get a pair of the brass ones and be all set.

    There is something meditative about rolling dice while gaming.
