One of the essential pieces of nearly all Tabletop RPG systems and games are the use of dice. Glorious dice. At first, as a new player, you may look on at this obsession of dice collection and categorise it as odd. However, it often does not take long before you find yourself amongst the rest of us; collecting a hoard of dice whenever you can afford a new set.
It soon becomes important to not only transport your dice to every RPG game you play – but to do so in style. One of the most popular ways to do this is to utilise a “dice bag”, like the infamous Crown Royal one seen here.
If you’re anything like me, however, I much prefer to individualise my dice bags. My largest issue to date with most bags is that it is one big, jumbled mess. I’m an incredibly organised D&D player and need my dice to be separated by either size (d2, d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20, d30, d100), or by set – depending on my mood that day. But the organisation is always a must. So I moved away from dice bags and towards a simple craft organiser. It was boring but it did its job.
Then, a new friend, Leah, at my Local Game Stores D&D Adventurer’s League night decided to try her hand at sewing not only dice bags but dice bags with SECTIONS. I have seen these before but without being able to personally test them I have been wary of how well they keep their organisation.
Green Leaf Baby, Leah’s company, offers a wide variety of fabrics to choose from as well and as soon as my gaze set upon a Harry Potter Marauder’s Map fabric I knew I had to try out these sectioned dice bags.
The customer service was fantastic – the options for fabric combinations were endless! Leah allowed me to choose not only the design on the outside of the bag but also the inside, allowing for anything of my choosing. After it was chosen, she set to work on its creation.
I received the dice bag within two days of inquiring about one. At first, I was skeptical. Its size, especially in comparison with my usual craft organiser box of dice (which was full, might I say), was quite a bit smaller. How was I going to fit all my beloved dice in here?!
Before we get to its size in depth (hah), let’s talk about the fabric. It feels thick, soft, and I ran my fingers along each sewed seam and I see no pulls, no consistency issues, nor any way in which the bag will fail me. It has a looped drawstring on each side for easy closing of the bag – and it does close with ease!
On a typical D&D night, I carry 7 sets of dice. That equals to 49 dice. I always have an extra d20, as well, in case I’ve had to ban all my other sets in dice jail for the evening. This equals a total of 50 dice.
The size of the bag is about 3 inches in height, 3.5 inches in width when closed and at its widest. Seriously…how was I going to fit 50 dice in here?!
But fear not, it fit them with total ease!
Since one of my set of dice is “baby dice” and are not full size, yet another set within the bag (in the large middle section) are metal dice, I would simply recommend that this dice bag is perfect for carrying 4-6 sets of dice.
I really enjoy the quality of the fabric and the obvious effort put into the bag itself not to mention that it is visually customisable. For the past several weeks I have been using this dice bag and I much prefer it over that of my previous setup. It is compact, easy to carry, easy to use, and when fully open easy to see my assortment of dice. I also feel as though my dice are properly protected as the fabric itself is thick.
The price of the dice bag is worthwhile, in my honest opinion, as it is custom made and sewn with high-quality materials. The total cost of the dice bag ranges from $20-$50 depending on size and customisation wants and needs. My particular bag is worth $25 not including shipping and handling.
If you’re looking for a custom dice bag, I highly recommend Green Leaf Baby if you’re looking to store under six sets of dice for your RPG Tabletop needs!
