In this video Balthazar briefly goes over a handful of the dice bags that we carry here at Awesome Dice and explains exactly what kind of gamer might be interested in which kind of dice bag. But don't let Balthazar push you into a corner: you don't have to be an astronaut to use the Night Sky dice bag. Buy the one you think is cool -- or match your dice bag to the game or character that you're playing.
It's not enough just to have the most awesome collection of sweet dice on the face of the planet -- you have to be able to carry all those dice around from game to game. From D&D to Vampire, from L5R to Shadowrun, dice bags are pretty much a requirement for RPG gamers, since trying to carry dice around in your pocket just doesn't work out in the end. Trust us on this one.
Just like the dice themselves, the bags come in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes. The smallest ones may be just fine to carry your basic 7-die set to and from the game, and the larget are great for a more comprehensive collection and carrying a couple of different dice sets. The smallest dice bags you can buy at Awesome Dice are the basic and very cheap velour dice bags measuring about 4" x 6", and these are more than large enough to hold a several sets of dice. Our dice bags can be broadly categoriezed as:
Basic: simple velour dice bags that can hold a few sets of dice
Awesome: dice bags with deigns printed on them, which are also larger in size and usually capable of holding up to 100 dice
Dragonscale: these are awesome hand-made bags with annodized aluminum scales to represent dragon scales
Crazy awesome: there is also the Cthulhu plush dice bag, which is so often it needs to go in its own category
All of the fancier dice bags we have, from spiderwebs to dragonscale, are much larger and can hold many more sets of dice -- some of them easily able to hold over 100 standard sized dice. While any of these dice bags are suitable for carrying just one set, some of the larger ones will feel pretty empty with just a 7-dice set in them. On the other hand, you can also toss in some pens or pencils (but be careful not to let the point damage the material of the bag).
