Etsy merchant Mechanical Oddities has created a pair of steampunk dice for all of the gamers out there who prefer to roll gears instead of dots. The dice are made using a 3D printer and are hand-assembled and painted to look authentic.

Besides looking different, the steampunk dice are also read differently. Gone are the dots normally seen on dice. In there place are gears that number from one to six. The dice come in two different finishes, bronze and iron, and are available for $11 apiece. That may seem steep for a single die, but how else are you going to be able to cosplay a game of Monopoly set during the film 'Howl's Moving Castle'?
