Weible Joker

These are kinda funky and very unusual. The company who is offering these is called Weible, and they are actually still available for purchase today, though not in the original triangular packaging they first came in many years ago.

The King Cards dice most people don’t know about

When people say King Cards, most collectors think of King Cards Pearl or King Cards Rainbow, which are fairly well known to collectors. However, King Cards also released other things that you don’t see all that often. Here are a few examples:

Dice & Games Randoms

Chessex has the PoD randoms, but I firmly believe that D&G also had weird random dice that they tried out or never made as full sets and then maybe put in the Crystal Caste Jingle Bones bags or distributed to the public in some other fashion.

D&G Olympic

There’s these three sets of dice I’m lucky enough to have in my collection that were made by D&G in gold, silver and bronze respectively. I’ve seen them called King Cards Pearl in the dice groups, but to my knowledge they were never part of the Pearl line associated with and sold by King Cards. They certainly don’t appear in any of the King Cards catalogues I have.

Random Rarities

Sometimes there’s just really random dice that one could consider rarities and that a lot of collectors never even knew existed. I would count most of these into that category. Not all of them fall into that category of ‘rare and sought after’, in fact a lot of them are probably ‘rare and actually fairly uninteresting’. 🙂

The Chessex Wedge d4

Many people will already know this, but still interesting to spotlight. The d4 wedge design itself isn’t an oddity, since some companies still sell dice in this general design, but these specific ones have become pretty rare, and there’s an interesting story attached as well.

Damaged or Faulty Dice

Many of us will have come across damaged dice, and usually that’s a nuisance because we want our dice sets as pristine and playable as possible, so then you reach out to customer service and get your damaged dice replaced, right?

Chessex Design Tests

Sometimes you buy dice lots, and they very much surprise you when they get there. I will admit that I purchased most of these fairly early on in my dice journey when I didn’t even really know how special they were.

Unusual Chessex Mould Oddities

Perhaps “oddities” is the wrong word for these, since most aren’t all that odd, they’re just not the moulds we’re used to seeing and that we think of when we talk about these dice.
