If you’re a Dungeons & Dragons player, chances are you already own some carefully chosen dice sets, each one handpicked to match your favorite characters. And if you’re like us, you never stop looking for more dice to add to your collection. There’s no such thing as owning too many dice, after all.
Here are our picks for just a few of our favorite places to shop for dice online. Whether we’re creating a new character, starting a new campaign, or just want to hear the lovely clacking sound of all the dice rolling across the table, these are great options. (Apologies in advance to your bank account.)

Cozy Gamer Shop is a Portland, Oregon-based dice seller. They have a wide selection to choose from. Whether you’re looking for an affordable set made by a large-scale manufacturer or a unique handmade set to splurge on, chances are you’ll find what you’re looking for here. We’re big fans of the sharp edge dandelion seed set (pictured above), the other striking floral and organic sets, and their sparkly set with shiny skulls. So many skulls.
Die Hard Dice
Die Hard Dice specializes in metal dice sets for players who really love the satisfying thunk of a heavy d20 on the table. Acrylic sets are also available. Die Hard Dice helpfully offers shopping lists based on character class and a wishlist feature that is both genius and dangerous. Shop for a complete set or affordably treat yourself with a single metal d20.
Add some bright colors to your campaign or show off your pride with Heartbeat Dice. From the rainbow hues of pride dice celebrating the LGBTQ community to vibrant dice trays, we love what Heartbeat Dice brings to the table.
Want good dice for a good cause? Heartbeat Dice teamed up with Lucky Hand Dice for this adorable translucent heart set raising funds for The Trevor Project. You can also preorder their special Black Lives Matter dice set with all proceeds benefitting The Okra Project.

You’ll be the envy of the table when you roll these sweet sets from Ice Cream Dice across the table. These colorful creations might be the first dice you’re actually tempted to put in your mouth. (Don’t do that, though.) From the candy corn dice above to root beer float inspired dice, these sets stand out. If you’re looking to give yourself a surprise treat every month, you can even sign up for a subscription.
Level Up Dice
It's easy to get lost in the hypnotic contrast between the crisp white stone and deep black veins of Howlite.
