View Full Version : Dice needed?

About the pen and paper D&D: How many dice do I need and which ones? I know that I need two D20, but what else is needed?

A "Standard" RPG Dice Set (which "typically" comes in a square plastic cylinder about 1" by 1" by 2") has a d4, a d6, a d8, a d10, a 2nd d10 marked 00-90 for rolling the "tens" part of a d100, a d12, and a d20. If you are buying individual die you can do without the 2nd d10, but the darn thing is so useful that most of us have it.

You can also buy more exotic die, such as a d30, etc, but you don't really need them - the Standard Set is all you'll really need.

But what tends to happen is that we end up with several Standard Sets - my current dice collect number in excess of 200 die :confused:

Thank you! In Argentina it's not that easy to obtain a dice set, so I will order them online. Thank you!

jump on ebay or aliexpress and you will find buckets and buckets of cheap dice.

You start out only with 7 or so. Then you find that you have buckets of them. This is a slippery slope. Good luck.
