Greetings Fellow Dice Fans!

 

The 3D Geekery has some amazingly cool items that every Dice Master should check out and this review article is going to give you a brief look at some of those items. You can see my review video on YouTube, here.

Note – I mentioned in the video that I couldn’t find the prices for the items, but it turns out that I’m not very good at using Facebook and totally missed the prices. I’ve noted the prices in this article.

Dice Storage

The 3D Geekery has a few different sizes for their storage cases and they’re working on even more! The one pictured above will hold 32 character dice, which is two Team Packs or two Starters worth of character dice. This storage unit is perfect for holding each Team Pack or Starter separately. The dice fit comfortably in each lane and are held in by a gate that slides and snaps in place. The gates are not easily shaken lose or jarred lose, which prevents accidental spilling of dice if the unit is dropped. If a gate should ever slide open, it will only affect that one lane of dice, unlike a tackle box or bead box which spills all of its contents if it were to accidentally open.

They can customize the units with lettering on the sides, making it very easy to label each set, Team Pack, and Starter in its own unit. The colors can be customized as well, so you can color code your sets or color code by IP.

This storage unit passed all of my durability tests, which is a major bonus. Tackle boxes and bead boxes do not pass my durability tests.

Here are the links to the different albums:

Small Storage Units ($5.00)
Large Storage Units ($10.00)

Card Shields

I mistakenly called these ‘plates’ in the video. Here is a direct link to the album for their Card Shields. You can get a set of two for $3.00 which is really awesome! These are the ones that I featured in the video.

Blank Tiles

I really love the Card Shields! They are a must have for players that play in the more competitive scenes because DWiz and Shriek are such highly used cards. These are totally worth the price and you can customize the colors and lettering as well.

Tokens

They also make a variety of tokens that are generated by certain card abilities. They’ve already made Squirrels, Plants, and Stun Tokens! They are priced at $2.50 per set and each set has four tokens. Here is a link to the album, here. I featured Squirrel Tokens and Stun Tokens in the video.

Squirrels

The Squirrels are super cute and look like chocolate! Don’t eat them! You can change the color of the Squirrels if you don’t like chocolate. But who doesn’t like chocolate?

Squirrel

Stun Tokens look so much cuter than a regular six sided die or glass beads. Their Stun Tokens are very thematic and can be made in any color. I absolutely adore my pink Stun Tokens!

Colors!

The 3D Geekery has a wide range of colors and they add new ones periodically. You can see an album with all their available colors, here.

Final Thoughts

My friends at The 3D Geekery have done such an amazing job with their products and they’re very affordable as well! The storage units are so amazing and I must have more! I plan to order a set of the plant tokens for Poison Ivy and would love to see what they come up with for the Experience tokens that they’re working on. There is a Drizzt card that produces a Guenhwyvar token that I’d love to have a token for too.

All of my locals thought the items were amazing, cute, and very useful. Functional accessories are always the best and everything they’ve produced so far is functional and cute too!

The 3D Geekery has made accessories that can help every Dice Master out there and also kept those accessories affordable! On a scale of one to ten, one being “don’t bother with it” and ten being “Must have!”, all of their Dice Masters accessories get a ten from me!

If you missed the link above, here it is again: The 3D Geekery. Go check them out!

Thanks for reading and watching!

Greetings Fellow Dice Fans!

 

About a month or so ago, as Mr. DDK and I were strolling around Wal-Mart, we happened upon some tiny boxes. They were cute, compact, and appeared to be the right size for cards and dice. I picked one up and instantly knew it would hold a full team of cards and dice. Mr. DDK was unsure, but when you’ve worked in a gaming store as long as I have, you just know these things. We decided to buy one and test it out. There were lots of colors and I wanted them all, but I wanted take one home and give it a good test run.

03 Open View

The handles snap over the extended part of the lid and all the boxes I have snap fairly tightly. I wouldn’t suggest throwing a loaded box as it would likely come open and spill everywhere, but dropping it on a table probably won’t cause a spill.

01 Stack View

Colors (top to bottom): Purple, Berry, Blue, Mint, and Clear.

Team Box

We arrived home and I loaded up my current team’s cards and dice into the tiny box and snapped the lid into place. It was glorious. Not only did all ten cards and action reminder cards fit, so did all twenty character dice, eight Sidekicks, six Basic Action dice, an extra D6, and my pony life tracker. I went back to Wal-Mart and bought the remaining colors.

04 Contents

Here is the team box and its future contents.

05 Cards

Sleeved cards fit nicely in the box.

06 Side Card View

Sleeved cards will take up a little more space than unsleeved cards.

07 Dice

After the cards, the dice go in! And so does my Rarity life tracker.

08 Lid

The lid fits perfectly, even with dice forming a second layer.

09 Side View

Side view of the sealed team box.

10 Demo Team

These make great demo team boxes. Each team fits perfect into one box.

11 Stacked

They stack perfectly too.

12 Box in Bag

Or you can slide your team box into your dice bag, if it’s big enough.

13 Box in Bag

Mine fits snug in my smaller bags.

I love these boxes for demo teams. I put together a Batman Family team and a Deadpool team as demo teams. Each box holds all the cards, dice, an extra D6, and the dice bag. And because they’re in such an awesome little compact box, I now have more space in my tackle box. I can also keep these boxes in my car with my spare playmats, so I always have demo teams on me without needing to tote my entire duffel bag everywhere. And since these boxes are clear, I can easily see what teams in the boxes without having to open them like I would a deck box, risking a spill.

There are plenty of uses for these adorable boxes. Stickers seem to take well to the smooth plastic too, which is great for someone who loves to sticker their boxes – like me!

FAQ

These are the questions that I’ve been getting from my locals. My locals absolutely love these boxes too!

What are the dimensions?
Roughly 3.5 x 4.75 x 1.5 inches.

Where can I find them?
I found all of mine at Wal-Mart. I’m not sure where else these can be found in person, but it appears that Amazon has them too. I found another site that also has these same boxes, called Classroom Direct.

How much are they?
Amazon is super overpriced and definitely don’t go through Wal-Mart’s online site either! I would only use them if it was a last resort! I got all of mine for $1 each at Wal-Mart. It looks like they are normally $1.23 when not on sale. Classroom Direct was the cheapest online site that I found for them.

What other colors are there?
There are the colors I found and I think there is a reddish-pink one and a green one out there in the wild somewhere.

Bar Codes

Box Barcodes
If you take the bar code to your local store, they can probably tell you if they have it in stock or if they can get it.

Final Thoughts

WizKids – this a great example of how you can package a Team Pack and get the max number of dice for each character in it. I know it works – I did it.

For anyone out there that carries around demo teams or extra loaner teams, I would highly recommend checking out these boxes. There are so many other uses outside of Dice Masters too, so if you find something you like better or just get tired of the boxes, you can easily find another use for them. And they’re so affordable, it won’t make you cringe if you do replace them later. I’ve definitely gotten my $1 worth of use out of all of them, likely ten times over already. Functional accessories are the best kind!

Rarity Accessory

There are even smaller boxes than these that I use to hold my HeroClix Relics. I’ve used it for almost a year now and it was only $0.88! I never knew there were boxes that would accommodate Dice Masters.

This is my Relic Box for HeroClix. The figures are to help with size comparison.

I’ve got a brief video on my YouTube channel that shows just how easy these are to pack, unpack, and use. Be sure to check it out!
