Dice Game AccessoriesThere was a time when dice had 6 sides and where used to propel abstract playing pieces in fairly logical fashion around game boards. They moved Backgammon pieces, they let you “Pass Go” and collect a stack of money and they were even games in their own right. With the advent of the table top roll playing game, the role of the die changed. They evolved into 4, 8, 12 and even 20 sided affairs and their role took on a much more imaginative affair, they helped you slay dragons,  confront attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion or undertake steam punk adventures through alternative earths.

In short dice came into their own, and as they rose to become an important part of the games mechanics the options and possibilities also evolved. Today they are as myriad and wide ranging as the game systems they serve and the person who throws them and as they are such an important part of the games system, it is only logical that they have their own culture to exist in.
