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 single D&D dice set to and from the game, and the largest are great for a more comprehensive collection. Our dice bags can be broadly categoriezed as:
Basic: simple dice bags that can hold two to three sets of dice. The cheapest options are made of velour and get the job done if you don't have a lot of dice. Fancier ones have imags printed on them, or are made from chainmail.
Leather: these are high quality, handmade bags that can hold many sets - six or more
Dragonscale: these are awesome hand-made bags with annodized aluminum scales to represent dragon scales
All of the fancier options we have, from leather 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 D&D 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).
Balthazar on Dice Bags
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. But don't let Balthazar push you into a corner: buy the one you think is cool -- or match your dice bag to the game or character that you're playing.
