Tips for care of Metal Dice

Die Hard metal dice are much heavier than polymer dice, and some of the die have sharper corners too.  To avoid doing D4 damage to your kitchen table, we recommend rolling onto something that can take the impact without doing scratch or dent damage.  Here are some good options:

Tips for rolling Metal Dice

Metal dice are resilient, but not indestructible.  As a general rule, if you plan on carrying them with you at all times in a backpack, I recommend a case, or something else to restrict movement. 

If you keep them in a bag where they can tumble against each other, over time they may develop scratches and scuffs, due to the sharp corners of the D4, D8, and D10.

Carrying and Storing Metal Dice

Storing your dice in a case keeps them from fighting amongst themselves while they're traveling in your bag of holding (backpack).

Die Hard Folding Dice Trays are black pleather on one side, grey satin on the other, and are reversible so you can roll on either surface.
