I recently picked up a bunch of matched sets of dice. They came in small clear baggies, the type ideal for organizing board games but less than ideal for lugging dice to game night. I have a cloth dice bag (white with purple draws, not purple with gold), but it’s not very satisfying and when you add the dice it came with (can you ever have enough dice?) it was a bit bulky, and it still only had one big compartment.
It was a bag of holding, and all I wanted was a handy haversack. I took to Google to find a dice bag that could hold separate sets and keep them from getting all mixed up. I didn’t have much hope, but the Dice Bag of Nine Pockets on Greyed Out’s Etsy store taught me a valuable lesson about not being a pessimist all the time.
It holds nine full sets of dice plus has a pocket in the middle for plenty of assorted others. The listing only has a few color options for the outside fabric, all solid colors, and I’d noticed on the other listings in the shop a nice sepia dungeon map fabric I thought would be great on a dice bag for a fledgling DM. I sent a quick question and the shop owner responded quickly that I could leave a note on the order about the fabric. I figured I’d be waiting a while since it was a custom order and the standard wait time is 3-4 weeks. These pictures were taken 6 days after I ordered, so I was very pleased with the turnaround time.
One reviewer suggested that the pockets were a smaller than advertised and that they couldn’t fit dice very well. I asked about this as well before ordering and was assured that they’d fit a full sized set of Chessex dice (I picked a random popular brand to get an idea).
They fit as advertised. As you can see there’s even a bit of head room in the pockets and fully loaded there’s still plenty of room in the central area. The dice shown are Perfect Plastic Dice by Hal Zucati These sets are bigger than Chessex dice would be as they’re designed to be proportional to the d20. Should be plenty for standard dice sizes.
The bag closes a bit differently than I was used to, clenching together into two straight lines instead of a round closure. It seems to hold dice pretty well though. I turned it upside down and shook a little bit and nothing came out. The dice in the side pockets even stayed where they were (though one die joined them).
At only $28, I highly recommend you pick one up for yourself, your DM, and maybe the rest of your group. Find it on Etsy.
