Black Ballistic IronDie

Black Ballistic IronDie

Since I missed last week’s Dice Bag article, I thought I’d give you two shiny things this week: metal dice and a metal bag to hold them.

I love browsing for interesting looking dice. Sometimes they may not be practical; maybe they don’t even roll properly. I have a couple of heavy brass 6-sided dice which basically thud flat and don’t roll at all, but they’re awesome to pull out when you want to scare someone — especially if you’re playing on their nice dining table. I think it’s time to add to my metal dice collection, and these from IronDie may be the ones to start with.

Black Fortress IronDie

IronDie specializes in creating metal dice with unique designs.  There is the [amazon_link id=”B004XNFNGQ” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Black Ballistic 6-sided[/amazon_link] which has raised curved edges and triangular carved pips. The [amazon_link id=”B004VEKVSW” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]6-sided Black Fortress die[/amazon_link] features angles and blocks, with numbers instead of pips carved in each side. And that’s just two of the varied designs they have. They’re cast in a zinc alloy, and IronDie says they’re made in Milan, Italy by a company that makes metal accessories for the fashion industry. I don’t care about that; I don’t plan to wear them. I just want to roll them on a frenemy’s mahogany table and hear him cry. Grab the dice for about $4.95 each or so at Amazon via the links provided if your friendly local game store can’t nab them.

Chain Mail Dice Bag

Of course, if you’re going to have tough looking metal dice, you need something equally impressive to carry them in. Chain mail, anyone? I found a chain mail dice bag at ThinkGeek which could be just the thing. The bag comes in standard chain for $9.99 or riveted chain for $14.99. They claim it’ll protect your dice from pointy weapons, but, frankly, if you’re playing with friends who want to stab your dice, you might want to find new friends. Again, if your local game store can’t get them, grab these by clicking the ThinkGeek ad on the page and searching for “chain mail dice.”
