... it's a box. They're charging $17.99 for a box.

You may not want it. But the price is normal. Google dice rolling tray.
... it's a box. I could get a pair of shoes for that price, and use their box as the "tray". EDIT: No, I probably couldn't at that. But I could buy a box of cereal for significantly less, and get a box about this size.

"a quieter rolling experience", for pity's sake.

Not sure you really needed two posts and my responses to come to this conclusion, but let me help. You might be better off not buying it then if that is how you feel. If I think something is overpriced I normally don't buy it and I feel much better after making that decision.
 

Speaking of dice trays, there is one game I can think of that would absolutely need them.

Fading Suns, 1st Edition. I still remember playing it in Ohio State U, back in the late 90s.

We used pools of d20s. Pools of d20s.

They scattered like goblins every time someone rolled a fistful. They bounced everywhere, all the time. Off the table, into the corners, under the chairs, out of the study room and into the corridors.

No wonder they changed the rules to single d20 rolls after that.

T&T players have been able to play as the monsters for some time. Monsters! Monsters! is in it's second edition, AND was released and shipped over a year ago. But I forget, it's not 5th Edition OR an EN product, so I expect it slipped under your radar.

Sounds like the product isn’t for you then. I find there are lots of products everywhere that aren’t for me. That’s ok. I deal with them by not buying them and just continuing to live my life.
 


I made two 7×12" foam lined trays for under $12... the 11×17' sheet of foam was $2, the two trays were on sale at Michaels for $8, and the can of spray glue was $2....
Adding local minimum wage, and the hour it took start to finish, makes it $24 for 2... adding a 50% markup (customary) $36 for 2...

I could make far nicer folding trays, tho', for less. $2 for the sheet of foam, $4 for 2 sheets of craft felt of same size, $3 for the glue, $4 for the HD snaps. $13, plus about 30 minutes work, for two... so that's $19 cost, or $29.50 for two after profit margin...
... at least once I find my snapset and punch. If I were to make a bunch, I could drop that a bit...

So their rolling tray box price is pretty reasonable

Your post sounds passive aggressive. But maybe you meant it more as a heads up. If you take a moment and look at the articles I've written for EN World and Geek Native I think you will quickly see your error.
