I haven't counted them to get an exact number, but I have several hundred dice.
Yes, I recently found my dice from my original purchase back in the day (my friend got the Holmes, so I must have bought mine at the hobby store). Some do have crayon, some don't. One of the d20s is more like a sphere.My prize dice possession is the three dice in my bag that came with the Moldvay basic box I started playing D&D with in the 80's. No crayon.
A friend of mine, his daughter makes her own dice. She's got molds, she melts whatever it is dice are made of, puts in weird colors and glitter and other stuff. They come out pretty cool, tbh. It's her hobby. And she's got a LOT of dice...Bazooka to swat a fly territory, there.
An entry level 3D printer is $200-$400. A set of molds to cast your own dice costs under $10.
Oh, geeze, I have one brick of 36, and another of 12 right in my line of sight - that's 48 right there.Besides culling the 6-siders from all the family board games that got tossed over the years, I know I’ve purchased enough sets of mini 6-siders to but me over the 100 dice mark by themselves.
Oh, I was just figuring in my D&D dice. I've got a metric ton of 6-siders from playing Warhammer 40K and some mechanic-specific ones from WH40K and Dust 1947.I am merely guessing at my total, which I put at 100-500. Could be more. Besides culling the 6-siders from all the family board games that got tossed over the years, I know I’ve purchased enough sets of mini 6-siders to but me over the 100 dice mark by themselves. And I often bought spare boxes of 6s to match standard die sets.
