For most of my wargaming past I’ve always thought of dice the same way I think of tape measures and balls of cotton for smoke …. just things I need to play a game,,, just another tool. I always made fun of the people that go to conventions and dig through the dice and say things like “Oooh, that’s a cool one, I need that one”. I always thought the “crazy dice collectors” were role playing gamers,,, us wargamers are much to serious for that silliness…. right?
Somehow after 35+ years of wargaming, suddenly I’ve caught the dice bug, I’ve been buying dice that I think look cool. I even thought for a brief second about buying a set of those insanely expensive dice that are made of rare, exotic materials. Fortunately I came to my senses before going that deep down the rabbit hole.
So, now that I have more dice than I actually need I decided to retire my dice bag and make a cool dice tray that will stack with my Tank Transports. Now that it’s done, I see that there is room for more dice …. good thing there is a convention coming up next weekend …. maybe I can find a few more dice that really “need” there.
