I don't....

Hello All,

I read many happy posts about big dice. However, I find them really inconvenient to use. They are not only too big to hold in the hand, but also not rounded enough on the corners to roll properly.

So, if anyone plans to order custom dice with ~12mm dice and rounded corners, I'm in for a set.

Do You have any good site recommendations? I know a few, but haven't really seen proper form and rounded corners.

For reference: Somethink like the game Alea Iacta Est has.

Regardless, KoT is a very good game, a real hit on our table.

I really like the big dice. They're big enough that you have to roll them with both hands. This combined with the weight of them makes rolling more dramatic and adds a bit of flair to the game as the participants are more animated.

These are not big dice.

These are monster dice.

The big chunky dice add to the cartoon feel to the game. However, I have played a few times by putting them into a roll-cup which can help if you absolutely hate big dice.

I like the size but I really dislike the poor rolling - I wish they'd rounded the corners more.

I love those dice, they're monster-sized and they make a lot of noise like the roaring of my MekaDragon devil

I love them for this particular game. They don't fit in my dice tower very well and they are uncomfortable to roll all at once. Good. They make me feel like an awkward kid when I roll them, which fits perfectly with the theme. This is not a game we should go into with a lot of seriousness.

Yes, I spend Geek Gold on useless things like this.

I would rather have smaller dice too but to order custom dice for this it would probably be a little pricey. Maybe someone will start offering them online somewhere.

The appropriate dice for this game would 50% larger, made of metal, and have sharp edges. This would guarantee that your table would look like the aftermath of a giant monster battle.
