In most popular RPG games dice are an essential commodity. With 3D printing and Shapeways you’re no longer limited to the traditional boring dice sets. Here are a few fantastic 3D printed dice sets to help you take your gaming and dice recreational activities to the next level.

Gaming gives us an outlet to escape from our normal lives and allows one to become something else unbound from reality. Gaming has the power to incentive, motivate, and reward behavior that makes us want to do more, be more, and achieve more. Let us know in a comment what’s your favorite game either online or offline.

    From what I could find on-line, some of the earliest examples of 20-sided dice were from ancient Egypt’s Ptolemaic period (first or second century) featuring Greek characters alpha-upsilon.
