Confession: I get very excited about dice. There's something about a sexy set of polyhedrals that gets my heart pounding. Put a well-crafted platonic solid (or swarthy d10) in my hand and I'm yours. So when I caught wind of these artisan dice from, uh, Artisan Dice, I melted inside, as if my soul had rolled a 20.
So the titanium set pictured above is by far the hottest (at least in my mind), but there's tough competition from various others, include these delicious brass ones and this collection made from carbon fibre. You know, if you plan on firing them into Earth's atmosphere.
Heck, these guys even have dice fabricated from Jack Daniel's whisky barrels.
Before you ask, yes, Artisan Dice ships to Australia for the reasonable sum of $US15. My quandary is not if I want a set, or even which one, but would I want to even use the dice, or just sit them on my bookshelf to admire?
