Easy Roller Dice: Review


I received some gaming products to review from Easy Roller dice. The Ohio based company sent me two polyhedral dice sets.

 

Easy Roller Dice Co. is made up of table top gamers and educators.  We create awesome products for gamers, teachers and other professions.

We’re constantly looking to increase our collection with things that are awesome and fun.

Some of us here started gaming in the late 80’s and early 90’s playing D&D 2nd Edition though we’ve played other editions and even jumped all the way back into 1e.

We love table top gaming, a good beer and getting together as much as possible on gaming night.

Ten piece dice set with bag

First of all the dice are beautiful. They have a cool brown hue with some marbling. The dice have a nice solid weight and heft. They feel good in your hand makes good solid thunk when they land on the table.  The numbers are clear and easy to read. The dice come in several colors. 

The set comes with a nice looking bag. you always need a bag for your dice.

10 piece set includes:

4 D6s, 1D4, 1 D8, 1 D10, 1D12, 1D20, and a 1 percent dice

I keep them on my desk. My 5 year old son likes to play with them rolls the on the desk and adds the numbers. Sometimes times he asks me the numbers. He likes to roll and see who gets the highest total.

Metal Dice

These might be my new favorite dice. They are gorgeous looking. The metal has an awesome copper color. They sound great landing on the table. And like the other set, they feel good in your hand.

The set includes a cool storage case. It has a faux leather look and the inside has foam with cutouts to keep the dice from rattling around. You can remove the foam and store three sets of dice, or about 21 dice.

Summary

These are some great dice. I look forward to gaming with them.

Word of advice on the metal dice. If you want a fair game, don’t let Magneto use them.

Dungeon & Dragons Kreon Warriors


KRE-O now has Dungeon and Dragon building sets and mini figs. The Kreons are sold on blister cards and not in blind bags with a small vignette for the character.  The KRE-O site list army building packs for $2.49. I did not see these in store. What I did see were the Kreon sets and some of the larger sets.

I picked up a Drizzt set because it’s Drizzt! He comes with his scimitars, a bow, and a tree. The figure has detail on his torso and legs. The elf ears are molded with the hair pieces. The cloak has three tabs with neck holes. I like the way it makes the cloak drape over his shoulders. There are two display base included as well a typical KRE-O block and a flat round base.  I prefer the round one but guess they included the block for constancy with other Kreons.  There’s also a card with character stats. This sets was $3.99 for 22 pieces.

drowI will look for the army builder bags and may get some if I see any interesting minis.  The KRE-O page won’t let me zoom in to see what all figures are available. It looks like they have the basic character classes and some monsters. KRE-O blind bags are usually coded with numbers so you can tell what character you are getting. Until the list is published online, avoid duplicates by looking for numbers on the bags and making sure you don’t get duplicate ones.

Look for them at places that carry KRE-O  sets. I tried the where to buy feature but think it just list where Hasbro stuff  is sold. Every store listed said call store foe availability.
See sets and figures at Dungeon & Dragons KRE-O.

So do you plan on adding any of these to your collection?


Zero to Hero Challenge Day 18 social networks


Today’s assignment: Explore one or more social networks, and start an account so you can being exploring the possibilities. If you’re already active on a social network, set up Publicize and link the account to your blog, and/or create a strategy for how you’ll use it.

Today’s challenge is to explore and add a social network. Or connect to them using Publicize. Well I’m already on most of the social networks and have them connected via Publicize. I’ve even have a gentlemint, which is similar to Pinterest. I’ve had users pin my work on Pinterest. But I’ve not really gotten into it yet. Even though Facebook is the big social network, I get the smallest feedback from it. Tumblr seems to drive more people to my projects.

Who uses Pinterest? how’s the community there?
