Running late, explanations for that tomorrow, tonight I’m gonna talk about dice. And these guys are gonna get a fair amount of talking about. Before that though, there’s a little time left on Dice Envy’s Dumbledice sale, use the code ACCIODICE to get 25% off your purchase. If nothing else, it’s worth checking out to see how they’ve renamed things for the event. Also,  Dougout Crafts is currently running a Kickstarter to do a restock of the Divination Dice, so now is a great time to check that out.

These were a seriously nice surprise, when the last Kickstarter for the Divination Dice ended I hadn’t been able to back them and it was really disappointing because they looked cool. And I like dice with a nifty theme. So it was really cool to open my dice of the month and see these.

The colors themselves are a special edition combination, purple dice with tan inking. It works really well with all the detail, they contrast enough for the details to stand out well and not get muddied. Even the really small details, like the d10s being individualized by having a sun on the tip of the planchet for one and a moon for the other. The d4 features each of the four suites for a tarot deck with crisp details on each side. Even the tiny planetary signs for the d12’s palmistry theming are nicely legible. This all, of course, means that the dice are also easily read even with all the detail work going on.

They feel nice to roll and seem well balanced. That second part is kind of impressive given the variety of pattern changes across some of the individual die. And, of course, the changes just makes the whole thing more fun.

The Divination Dice are definitely a set that I would have gotten even if the Original box for July hadn’t had this particular variation on it. So a lot of my score here comes from having gotten something that really surprised and excited me. But I’m giving the Divination Dice a five out of five. If you like the theme and get the chance, check them out.
