I took a walk from my hotel to Akihabara to look for the Yellow Submarine shop there, and managed to walk straight at it.

I didn't buy any actual games, but a number of dice:

- sixsided with the one being a pink unicorn (of course!)

- sixsided with a map Japan instead of one

- sixsided, marked when/why/who/what/where/how

- sixsided, marked with Roman numerals

- sixsided with all eyes being either UFOs or alien eyes

- sixsided with the corners drawn out to points

- sixsided with sexual positions

- sixsided with cylindrical shape

- eightsided with SW/SE/NW/NE twice each (I wonder why it doesn't have N/E/S/W instead of one set)

- tensided with cylindrical shape

- tensided numbered 10/20/30/...

- tensided inside a larger, transparent tensided

- twentyfoursided (never saw one of those before)

- thirtysided with letters on

The plush twentysided dice and the plush Cthulhu were also tempting, but I left them for now.

Not so uncommon
Many of these dice are available at my local game store in San Diego, so I expect that they can be found anywhere in the US.
