Festive Fantasy isn’t a huge dice company just now, but based on these dice I think I want to keep an eye on them going forward. These dice were from a Kickstarter that really excited me. It was one set of dice, no stretch goals, and a fairly short time frame. The campaign was really well run and delivered on time, so I’m definitely backing Festive Fantasy’s current Kickstarter for their new Floral Fantasy line.  They have about twelve days left as of posting, so if you’re interested go check it out!

It isn’t well captured here, but a big part of what interested me in these dice was the iridescent red throughout. It’s a pretty fantastic effect that catches the light fantastically and is kind of swirled through the acrylic, interrupting the iridescence and making nice patterns. The breaks in the iridescence has an interesting side effect of almost making the white of the acrylic seem tinted green, it’s nifty. Something about it makes me think about the way velvet looks when the light catches it just right.

Despite the red sparkles the inking is super legible and easy to read. It’s also well done with few notable thin spots that do not take away from the dices’ usability. In addition to being nicely legible, the Bloodstones set rolls well. I haven’t found where any of the ones in my set tend to favor certain sides more than others. I’ve been using them for my Saturday night game lately and they are really nice to roll and feel good in hand.

I really like these dice and find myself hoping that Festive Fantasy will make more dice in a similar vein after their current Kickstarter ends. The red iridescence makes for a fantastic trick of the light, leaving them with shining swirls of color that make me very much want to use them for a magic using character. I’m definitely sold on the quality of Festive Fantasy’s dice and the Bloodstones set gets a five out of five from me.
