I am a dice fan. Plain and simple.

I like the act of rolling dice, the feeling of anticipation as I get ready to see the outcome. I can understand why some people hate dice... or rather the dice seem to hate them.
I have this unnatural ability to make dice bend to my will. To jinx other peoples rolls or to call my roll. It's eerie and I have actually won a number of bets by calling a roll.

This list is dedicated to game that have either really cool dice or dice that are just unusual. They are not your average D6 or D10 but there is something different or unusual.

I'll post the ones I like... Please do the same.

Sure most of the dice in this game are standard, but I just love this little football looking dice. It got a unique feel to it when rolling.

While this game uses stadard D6. The color to these dice are quite unique in my opinion. The sides represent the numbers or colors need to play the game and get to phase 10. Also, the dice have a nice heavy feel to them you don't find in most dice.

Another 6 sided dice, but the earlier sets came in both red and blue and had their unique skulls or shields to show hits and blocks.

I have rolled my fair share of these dice.

Here is the first set of wooden nice on this list. While I like these dice, even though they are a bit lite for my tastes, the rounded corners keep these dice rolling around a bit. This can be a problem for spastic rollers who have keep picking them up off the floor or take out a unit or two.

The Doom dice. I like that you use the different colors depending on what weapons you use. One roll of your dice can be used to show a miss, range, damage or ammo used. A great concept!

While they look like a standard D6 and D10. The 6 sided dice has number up to 11 in odd increments. The D10 has a collar and Badge symbol that either let out or return the dog or guard.

Do you want to move a leader, move some armies, search for the fellowship, muster or play a card? It all depeneds on the roll of the dice. The images on these dice are very nicely etched into them given them quite a unique feel. For dice, they add a nice flavor to an already thematic game.

Another wooden rounded six sided die . The markings on this make it a unique one. Which symbol comes ups plays a huge decision on what horse you move. That and how you bet.

I won a copy of this on ebay for a really good price. When I got the box there were no dice in them. I contacted the buyer and he said he would take the game back... but I really wanted it. To this day I don't have dice for this game so I don't know what they do.... but damn, they look cool.

OK. I was one of the people who had an issue with these dice. They were plastic and you had to apply the stickers to them. They weight really bugged me. What really kills me is that the box could withstand a direct Sabot round, but the dice could be crushed by small child.
