I also have a number of custom dice bags that my wife made for me, for special sets of dice.
I hate Crown Royal. Canadian Whisky if Im not mistaken? Im more of a Chivas Regal drinker. Funny cause I just bought a great dice holder and Jen comres up to us and says, "Does anyone want this Crown Royal", bag. I took it but realised I got no use for it. Thats my new dice holer.

My oldest and holiest bag ...

I like that phrasing, and I also have an oldest and holiest bag.

Mine is a piece of suede that I very clumsily stitched into a bag back when I was in junior high school. While playing in a friend's back yard one very bright summer day, my friend took a magnifying glass and burned my initials into the bag over the course of the afternoon such that I didn't notice. Surprise monogram! This bag holds a miscellaneous collection of dice.

These days, I've got a collection of a few sets of new dice that are in a bag with an embroidered dragon on it. There's another collection of six sets of dice whose colors are inspired by various nebulae I am saving for characters that call for them, in their own faux-leather bag, and a few sets of Fudge/Fate dice in their own plain bag. I also have a few sets of higher-end dice I keep in wooden dice vaults from a couple of purveyors.

Also, tucked away in the library I have all my old un-inked polyhedrals, in a beaker I used to use for iced tea in college. I don't carry them around, but they're actually kind of pretty in glass...

I've been collecting dice since the 80s. I've been losing dice for a fleeting few seconds less. I have a number of wooden coffers for "the extra". I have a locking plastic case that was my player dice - it is actually a remarkably well made Beta (early competator of VHS) cassette box. But that's been sitting near my computer for the non-VTT online gaming I do. One of my players gifted me a leather hexagonal dice rolling case with lid, and that's my current go-to. It has a groove on the outside to hold dice, and a big area in the center to roll them. It's the only "fancy" thing I have, besides the history of the Beta case.

Bags when needed. Since I mostly game in two places, I tend to leave one dice set at one (where I keep a dice tower), and the rest in a case something like the one in the original post at home.
 


I'm with you on that, I hate Crown too. Irish Whiskey or Scotch are my drinks of choice. That said, I bartended for years so I ended up with tons of those bags. Even though I don't like Crown it just feels right using the bag.
It was like someone threw a switch about 1995 and everyone started doing shots of crown and Jagermeister because it was expensive.

I have an investment in the product (being married to the creator), but the All Rolled Up game roll — along with a folding dice tray — means that I have pens, pencils, 100+ dice and counters, cards, and something to roll those dice in combined into a single easily carried and stored package.

I helped my wife with the original design because while a standard dice bag was fine for holding dice, it got more complicated if you added stationery or cards. A box is great, but it takes up a lot of space. The wide mouth of the dice bag part along with a flat bottom means that you can turn it into a sort of bowl — meaning that you have a thin layer of dice to dig through when you have a lot in there, so the digging isn't too messy. I have deep dice bags where it's like playing a Lucky Dip stand at a fayre.

The range also has a pile of generic and licenced designs, approved with the originating companies — like Free League, Chaosium, Pelgrane Press, Ulisses Spiele, Cubicle 7, and Games Workshop, as well as artists like Ralph Horsley (MTG, WFRP) and Russ Nicholson (Fighting Fantasy, AD&D).

I know that my wife has put her life and soul into creating these things, by hand, and taken the time to source the best materials and get agreement to use the most eye-catching images from major tabletop game properties. We have people who bought theirs 5 or 6 years ago coming to us to show they're still in use and working just fine — including when we attended Gen Con 50 a few years back.

I wish I still had my first dice bag. It was gold and shimmery and garish. The thin fabric long ago gave up the ghost, though.

My oldest and holiest bag is of paisley fabric in drab colors.

Also same. Give me a bottle of Powers or Teeling over that any day.

While I have a good amount of dice so far, whenever I go to play DND, I usually select and use a couple as a main set. The rest stay at home. The Q-Workshop Llama dice are my particular favorite right now as it seems like it rolls good compared to some of my other dice that I have. As for carrying options for said dice selections and Inspiration Tokens, I've been using the Rime of the Frost Maiden and Laeral Silverhand's Explorer's Kit Dice Tray boxes.

And while I love the Explorer's Kit Dice Tray box the most, mostly due to its inscription on it that fits DND as a whole, combine those with the books I bring and all in a bag, it's kinda a lot to carry technically. I SHOULD invest in a larger bag, but then, most of my Cheesex Gemini dice sets are still kept in their containers, which feel like they would technically take up quite a bit of room/space that a larger dice bag would off. Honestly I should probably just order this and get it all done and over with in that regards:
