These 3-D Printed Game Pieces Will Improve Dungeons and Dragons

Dungeons and Dragons players will be jazzed about these epic new designs for game pieces. Dice plays a big role in this game (in fact, it’s pretty much the only piece required to play). A Shapeways user recently designed these thorn dice models, switching from plastic to metal materials.

There’s no denying that these thorny metallic game pieces are better than the standard plastic dice sets associated with the game. Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy game that takes place in the collective imaginations of all the players. It involves elves, terrifying warriors, dragons (of course), and all kinds of other creatures. Given the badass nature of this nerdy game, it seems only fair to use equally badass dice.

These prickly dice designs serve as a reminder that there are endless possibilities in terms of 3-D printing. Stats for 3-D Printed Dice Upgrades Trending: This Year & Chilly
