Anyone know the names of actual dice manufacturers?

Post by BaronVonWreckedoften »

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to source 14mm, light blue dice (D6, opaque) and it seems to be one of the colours that are "out of stock" with just about every single eBay seller in the UK (there don't appear to be any in the EU and the US only does 16mm or 12mm). Does anyone know the names (or better still, contact details) of the companies that actually manufacture dice, as opposed to the retail outlets? Sellers seem to be reluctant to part with such info for some weird reason.....

Not really what you want, but just in case: I have 3 packs of 10 on eBay but they are 16 mm see https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114752857121

Thanks - most kind, but the colour and size are both key in this case.

Thanks, I did briefly look at these, but the base and spot colours just don't really work, IMO (YMMV).

:( :(

I thought the black spots might be a deal breaker.

I noticed that you can get what you want if you're prepared to buy a whole load that you don't need as well, ie buy 100 dice and get 10 in light blue!
It's down to how much you want 'em :D

I have looked at that option, but realised I couldn't afford that AND the consequent divorce as well.

Just get them delivered under plain wrapper. (tell your wife it's porn and your more likely to get away with it :D )
