Our Friendly Local Gaming Store was having a 20% off sale this weekend, so I picked up a couple boxes of minis and the Chessex Pound-O-Dice.
I’ve always looked at the Pound-O-Dice and wondered if it would be worth buying. Seeing as I have a huge new dice bag (thanks to the Gnomes for tipping me off to that one!), I thought it would be the perfect time to pick up some more dice.
In my Pound-O-Dice, I got:
- 1 complete set (you always get one in the yellow envelope, mine was cream colored with orange speckles – very creamsicle-esque)
- Sixteen d20s
- Four d12s
- Thirty-eight d10s
Um, yeah, seriously. This includes 3 blank d10s, a shame because they are such pretty colors.
- Seven d8s
…including one that looked like someone took a bite out of it.
- Twenty-one d6s, normal size
…including one blank one
- One d6, big mini size
- Twenty-four d6, mini size
- One d6, super mini size
- Seven d4s
There are some really pretty ones and some pretty ugly ones. There are a few with numbers that have worn off. On the whole though, the dice are functional.
Breaking them up into sets (mismatched sets, but still sets), I get 5 full sets including the guaranteed one. A set of decent-quality dice runs about $5 (bit more, bit less depending), so five full sets would run you about $25. The Pound-O-Dice runs anywhere from $15-30. Considering I got five full sets plus a considerable amount of extras, I’d say the Pound-O-Dice is a pretty good deal.
Now… does anyone want a bunch of extra d10s? I certainly don’t need 38 of them.
