    dice roller ya know... for physical Dice! no APPS!

    Hi Guys~

    So I am in the market for a new dice roller. No not something to use on my phone or tablet. I am looking for a box or something to roll my physical dice in.

    My DM makes these awesome card stock sets and I really don't want to knock them over when I roll my attacks on the table.

    I know I could just use a box lid or something mundane. But there's gotta be something out there that is both awesome and contained. It needs to be portable and small enough to sit on my lap at game time. Bring on the suggestions and photos if you got em!

    You're looking for a dice tray. Lots of great options with a Google search, once you know the right term.

    Another option that one of my players has made use of is a dice tower - I believe his comes from Blue Panther, though I may be mistaken.

    Happy to help. I've run into this kind of problem before, where if I'd only known the right term to search for, I would have been set.

    Hey guys!

    Thanks for all the awesome advice! I found a pretty nifty solution for a dice tray! So basically I bought a $1.99 frame from IKEA.

    RIBBA Frame - high gloss/gray - IKEA

    Then I glued the glass to the frame and covered it in felt. all told, materials probably cost about $5.

    here's some pictures!







    also makes a purdy good device holder for watching Netflix on your phone while painting minis or what not.

    Yea, a few years ago someone had some cool ones at GenCon -resin tray, dragon heads on the sides and little slots to hold dice. It was cool.
