Like many gamers I have far more dice than I probably need, most of which currently reside in a large beer stein (no beer, just dice). Over the years I’ve owned a number of dice bags, but for some reason I no longer have any of them. Through Twitter I’d been following a number of people who spoke highly of bags made by @geekylyndsay, so I decided to buy a bag from her site: www.dragonchow.com.
The website offers dice bags in a variety of fabrics including things like Batman logos, colorful flames, pebbles, aliens, and more, or you can get a custom dice bag. Lindsay contructs each bag from two different fabrics in such a way that the bags are reversible. The square bottom design allows them to stand on the table, even when empty. While most of her bags sit on a 4″ x 4″ base, the day I went shopping for a bag she had a 1.5″ x 1.5″ based Teeny Tiny Dice Bag available in a blue flame/black fabric combination. Because I do most of my gaming at home I decided to go with the Teeny Tiny Dice bag which sounded like it was perfectly sized for a single set of dice, plus a couple extra d20’s for those occasions when I travel to the game store for a game (always need to have an extra d20 or 2 in case one starts to misbehave).
The dice bag arrived swiftly, in almost exactly 1 week and I was quite impressed. The dice bag looked, and performed exactly as advertised. My wife does some quilting, and other sewing projects around the house, so I checked out the stitching and it looked clean and tight. In addition my order came with a hand written thank you note. While in the scheme of things, almost every company in the gaming world is a small business, the quality of the work and the personal touches really impressed me.
If you’re in the market for a dice bag, I definitely recommend taking a look at Dragon Chow’s products.
