My First Set of Metal Dice

I’m not sure why, but I’ve never really been too invested in getting a set of metal polyhedral dice. Probably because I obsess over having multiples of certain dice, and it’s harder and more pricey when it comes to a polyhedral set.

These Fate dice from Norse Foundry, however, were on sale, and I decided to get my first set of metal dice. I like that the “font” of the dice matches the other Fate dice, and they have a really nice feel to them.

I got the steel and black because I thought it was a good “all-purpose” color combination. The next time I run a Fate game, we’ll see if I break my statistitically unlikely ability to roll a negative number consistently when running the game.


Love it. I do like metal dice but I always feel I can’t roll them with acrylic. I’m probably crazy, but we all have dice rituals.

I played at a game at Necronomicon this past weekend where we were all required to use the same d6, after we said hello to it. Fortunately it was a game with minimal die rolling. Fun the various rituals that people come up with around random events.


Metal dice are sweet. I got the Cthulhu set from Q Workshop. They give a sort of gravitas to the roll. Unfortunately, I need to use a cover to keep from breaking glass tables.

I like metal dice at times, but they can be a pain to roll on some surfaces. Felt-lined dice trays work great, though.

I got a metal d20, it is something like 1.5” and weighs a pound or something. I’m only going to use it at conventions as it would seriously destroy my table at home.

Ooohhh…conventions are gonna need wear and tear insurance with stuff like that. Have you considered a padded dice tray for that?

Very cool man! I always edge up to buying the Gamscience Zocchi precision dice, but then back down.
