1. Chessex Pound of DiceI have to say, this is the way to buy dice. Yeah, it's nice having a matching set, but this is both more economical and more fun! There were some really weird ones included too, particularly among the d6's. I was a little nervous about the quality, since they are supposed to be Factory Second, but besides a couple wonky-looking d12s, the vast majority look fine. I split this 3-ways with my gaming group, which left me with 33 new dice.

We already got to try this out in a recent session. I like it much more than our other two option: drawing on a small piece of paper and passing it around, or using cardboard dungeon-tiles. Being able to draw on a large scale allows the DM to set-up encounters quickly and so that everyone can easily see. I also got a set of wet-erase markers to go with these, and I already have dry-erase ones.
