Welcome to the Friar!
Try the veal!
That's why I use Gamescience and casino dice as much as possible! Chessex dice are horrible, they are one step away from being marbles!I still don't understand why most FLGS owners roll their eyes when I ask for Gamescience dice. It seems like if people are willing to buy piles of neo-RPG supplelments they'll never use, at least they'd spend $10 on a good set of bones.
Totally agree with Cyclopeatron. Having lived in Vegas for years ... I acquired a huge cache of casino dice ... but I also own five or so sets of game science dice. I do have a huge pirate treasure chest full of "guest" dice that I let others use ... but I rarely roll those myself.
I have a couple set of Gamescience dice too, unfortunately they roll a little too equally and don't allow me to impress my fellow gamers with remarkable rolling skills. With them, I'm merely...balanced.:)
I've got a motley collection of dice that I've acquired over the years. I've no idea where most of them came from but I do know that none of them is from Gamescience. My two oldest d6 are the ones I got with Squad Leader from Avalon Hill; the game is long gone but the dice remain. They seem pretty reliable. The less said about my d20 of doom however, the better.
