Artisan Dice

Artisan Dice make some of the most beautiful dice I’ve ever seen, and I’ve always wanted a set. Some of the latest I’ve seen, from their Necromancer’s Dice set, are of an even higher level of beauty… and price. The price however, doesn’t make me want them less! The dice pictured above are made of American Bison horn. Artisan Dice makes dice from all sorts of material, however, and they are equally gorgeous.

The company offers dice made from wood, metal, polymer and even stone. While some of their extraordinary dice are indeed pricey, some are much more affordable! Click on the link below to visit the Artisan Dice website and enjoy a catalog full of wonderfully crafted dice!

Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn

Plaid Hat Games’ arsenal of games isn’t as large as that of other game companies, but every one of their games is of the highest quality. Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn is designed and illustrated by the same team that produced Dead of Winter, a Flaming Dice Reviews Editor’s Choice Award winner. Ashes, like Dead of Winter, looks to be equally amazing.

In Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn, players take control of the powerful Phoenixborn, demigods who are vying for control of a war-torn world and who seek to ascend to the status of full god. Through a combination of dice and cards the Phoenixborn do battle with one another. Ashes will be an expandable card game that includes 6 Phoenixborn to choose from in the core set.

If ever there was a game that deserved an all-inclusive, affordable, deluxe edition, it is Machi Koro. The Deluxe Edition includes the base game, both the Harbor expansion and Millionaire’s Row expansion, as well as upgraded components.

  1. About Artisan Dice!!!

    Run fast and run far. The quality of work is poor. And then claimed to be an artistic rendition…. (off centered misshapen dice is not artistic if meant to be used as actual dice.)

    And there is an even better chance that you will just never get your dice and will be out $300+ for a single set of dice. That they also will not refund. Check out any review that isn’t on their own webpage or facebook. They block users from their page if they even ask about their product. anything that paints them in a negative light is immediately removed, and then they don’t even respond to the costumer that has already paid. They continue to take orders knowing they can’t deliver.

    Check out bbb, reddit, dice maniacs groups on facebook or any other number of pages created and dedicated to steering the unaware away from this fraudulent company.

    • I don’t know what has happened since but when I reviewed the dice a long time ago they were great quality, not mishapen, and they were purchased from a 3rd party (not directly from them). I have been out of the loop with them, so to speak, since then.
