Do you personalise your game with dice or use generic? My favourite set of dice were gifted to me by a friend. They are lilac (shocker!) with pastel numbers all around. They are what I would call my 'Lucky Dice'.

Dice come in all colours and sizes, and until recently - they came in one format. Your usual D4 to D2o would be in the stereotypical  Tetrahedron and Icosahedron shapes. However, on Kickstarter, Orbidice has a new take on the shape. A spherical take on a classic look.

Can you surrender the control of the dice which you hold so dearly? For years we have trained ourselves (at least in to thinking) that we can throw a dice in a particular way to achieve the desired number. With a spherical shell, we relinquish the control and the luck of the dice truly does become held in the palms of fate.

There is a range of different sizes available on the Kickstarter campaign, starting from D4 up to D20, you will have spherical dice for all types of tabletop games and occasions.

The mechanics behind the dice are absolutely fascinating. Soft enough to throw without the feeling of a marble smashing up the place, the inside is carved in a particular way to counterbalance the stopping mechanism. The dice are designed to roll and stop within a short time at a short distance.

Not a fan of red and black? More and more goals are unlocking the further we go into the campaign, with a beautiful Dragon Eggs style already unlocked and the Two Sword Village not far behind.

The Kickstarter campaign and crowdfunding involved has already obliterated its initial target. I guess tabletop gamers are looking for a new modernised shape alongside their games. Let's just hope they don't go rolling off the table!

How do you feel about changing the shape of your dice to a spherical shape?
