Dungeons and Dragons uses any standard 7-dice set. In fact, the 7-dice set is the gaming standard because of D&D. At a minimum to play you'll need one each of: 4-sided dice, 6-sided dice, 8-sided dice, 10-sided dice, 12-sided dice, and 20-sided dice. When you buy a standard D&D dice set you'll also get a second 10-sided die that's used for percentile rolls.
While most gamers prefer to have several sets on hand so they can roll larger dice pools without needing to reroll any dice, you can roll everything that needs rolling with a single standard dungeons and dragons 7-dice set.
D&D is the grandaddy of all role playing games. Dungeons and Dragons established the standard gaming dice set of 7 polyhedral dice that has been used by hundreds of RPGs since. When you buy a standard D&D dice set it includes the 4-sided die, 6-sided die, 8-sided die, 10-sided die, percentile 10-sided die, 12-sided die, and of course the signature 20-sided die. While Dungeons & Dragons has gone through many iterations throughout the decades, from basic to advanced to 2nd edition to the giant 3rd edition D&D revival, to 3.5 and 4th edition, the standard D&D dice set has remained the same.
Way back in the day the original D&D boxed sets came with a 7-dice set of plain, opaque dice where you had to color in the numbers yourself, and let me tell you, we here at Awesome Dice are pretty thrilled with how far D&D dice have come since then!
Now rather than those plain mono-color D&D dice we can buy our Dungeons and Dragons dice in much higher quality, heavier dice with actual colored numbering. Or translucent D&D dice, and speckled D&D dice, or all the myriad of premium dice styles available. Heck, if we really want to show off and have the coolest D&D dice on the planet, we can get metal dice or dice crafted from actual gemstones.
It's a good time to be playing Dungeons and Dragons, the oldest and still largest RPG. And it's a great time to buy D&D dice.
We asked Balthazar to make a video about D&D dice, and this is what he sent us: a brief summary of D&D dice followed by a series of stories of what he has accomplished in Dungeons & Dragons (and out) with his D&D dice:
