Happy holidays, fellow nerds!
‘Tis that special season where, more than any other time of year, we think of those that matter most to us, and offer them tokens of our appreciation! We thank them for putting up with our peculiar hobbies, rage-fueled rants about fictional characters, our ideal fanfic ships, and (most of all) for loving us in spite of all that!
If you’re shopping around this holiday season and aren’t sure what to pick for those special roleplayers in your life, here are some staff picks to take out some of the guesswork! At the time of writing, all items mentioned here are currently in stock and ready to be shipped to you in time for the holidays!
Even if you (or those you’re shopping for) are familiar with our products and have been following us for a while, these new sets of sharp-edged resin dice may not look familiar. That’s because they JUST launched in November to be ready for this month, specifically so they’d make great surprises for Christmas! Compared to our other resin sets, these are slightly larger, and have crisp, hard edges on every face of every die, setting them apart from the round-edged acrylics that everyone started with.
This new line is inspired by different spells, cantrips, and magic items from D&D! If you want to make your selection based purely on looks, you can! If you want your warlock who’s always casting Hellish Rebuke on her foes to have a specially-themed set to roll with, you can do that too!
Particularly festive options from our collection are the Green Flame Blade and Shatter sets, which glisten and glitter in holiday hues!
Jingle Dice, Jingle Dice, Jingle Dice ROCK!
Hollow metal dice are a new trend that gained a lot of popularity this year! Make from surprisingly sturdy alloys then plated with copper, these dice have a unique characteristic that made them famous on TikTok and Instagram: they JINGLE!
When they strike one another, like when preparing to roll or when landing in your tray, these hollow dice literally sing! They make a satisfying tinkling, jingling noise akin to sleigh bells or wind chimes. A relatively niche choice with broad appeal, your friends aren’t likely to already own a set, making them a wonderful gift idea! And even if they do… they don’t look like the Dragon’s Lair or Legends of Valhalla sets!
Who doesn’t like dragons, am I right? I mean, they’re in the name of the game! Blue dragons are my favorite, so here are the Blue Dragon’s Lair dice to serve as an example. Each face of each die has a tiny dragon hiding behind the number, a secret that casual observers might miss! The gilded edges call to mind a dragon’s lust for gold, and add to their show stopping beauty!
The Legends of Valhalla sets have even more variance to each die! Each side has either a wolf (Fenrir), a serpent (Jormungandr), or a Raven (Huginn or Muninn, your choice) on it. Their minimalist frame helps them make an exceptionally beautiful sound without sacrificing durability. The blue enamel on this copper set helps ensure that the numbers are legible, even at a distance or in mood lighting.
Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!
Gift giving is hard sometimes… you’re never quite sure if you got exactly the right thing. But if even YOU don’t know exactly what you’re getting them, you’re in the clear!
Our mystery bags have been the talk of the convention scene, and now we’re making them available online as well! Their contents run the gamut of our inventory, so there’s a little of everything inside!

A Merry METAL Christmas!
Rolling dice for D&D? Cool. Rolling Dragon’s Eggs for D&D? Even cooler!
Our Dragon’s Egg metal dice sets are a great addition to any collection! If you don’t already have metal dice in your hoard, they are hefty and satisfying to roll! Exceptionally easy to read with their gold numbering, the uncommon texture of these scaled dice make them special even among other metal sets. They are also slightly larger than the average set, making holding and rolling them even more impressive!
There are deals and bargains all throughout the shop, and several Buy ___ Get ____ deals going on through the next couple of weeks (deals are ever-changing, so I won’t get into specifics)!
