You don’t have to play the Call of Cthulhu Roleplaying Game to appreciate the artistry and functionality of these beautifully crafted dice. Per Q Workshop, “this is a set of full metal dice, made of tin and painted in black. The numbers and ornaments are engraved in the dice, ensuring their top quality. They are practically indestructible – and they come with the lifelong guarantee.”

The fine folks at Q Workshop sent me a prototype set of these dice to try out, and I have to say they exceeded every expectation I had. Not only are they stylistic and downright awesome to look at, they are well balanced and roll nicely on my playing mat.

The dice set contains:

1xD4
1xD6
1xD8
1xD10
1xD12
1xD20
1xD100

The total weight of the set is 163.25 grams / 5.75 oz.

I LOVE these dice, and I highly recommend you head over to the Kickstarter page and pledge to back them now. Yes, the goal has already been met, BUT pledging on Kickstarter is your chance to get many exclusive Call of Cthulhu items that WON’T BE AVAILABLE ANYWHERE ELSE AFTER THE CAMPAIGN. The main dice set will be available to buy later, but at a higher price and only after all of the rewards have been shipped to their backers.

Look at this attention to detail! Each die is adorned with tentacles on the edges and fanged mouths in the corner!

Do yourself a favor and get in on this dice set now. Regardless of whether you are a gamer or not, you will certainly appreciate the careful detailing and artistic craftsmanship of these dice. If you don’t play, then display these as a conversation piece. And if you do play, you can take pride in knowing these dice will never wear out and the numbers will never fade away. Either way, pledge now. You don’t want to anger the Elder Gods…do you?
