Well, most gamebooks are played with D6 dice, so today I’ll be reviewing the Chessex Pound o’ D6 bag.

This bag consists of a assorted choice of D6 dice of several sizes. Some come with factory defects, but these are usually not noticeable. The exception to this are dice with missing pips (see image).

In my bag I got 169 dice. Most of them are 16mm and 12mm in diameter. I also got 4 really tiny dice which I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them.

My favourite dice in the pack are the ‘frosted’ ones which are vaguely opaque, but still I use my Chessex Vortex Magma ones to play gamebooks. 🙂 read more

The thing about most gamebooks is that in order to play them you’ll likely need a pencil, paper, an eraser and… dice. Some books, like the new editions of the Fighting Fantasy series have dice roll results printed in their pages so you can open the book randomly and use them when a throw is needed. Still, throwing dice is more fun and some people (like me :p) actually like to collect them.

If you’re starting your collection or simply want lots of different dice without paying much for them, you have the option of acquiring a Chessex Pound O’ Dice. This is a bag of assorted dice. According to the official description, the bag comes with about 100 dice (6, 8, 10, 12, 20 & 30-sided) and all are factory seconds (dice with small defects). In addition, inside the bag there’s an envelope with a complete polyhedral speckled dice set, which only can be acquired with these bags. read more
