I haven't gone to the Dollar Store lately, but maybe I should. Someone posted a Dollar Store Challenge video for a D&D game; we can always use it for BFRPG.

Really? I’ve never seen other colors! Pretty cool. They have a case of the brown ones online. If I ever DM a one-shot for kids again, or at a Con, I might get those to bring. But I’ve only seen the dice in the store twice, and bought a set the second time. And this is in the three Dollar Trees within a couple miles of my home - my 11yo is addicted to the candy deals. :D We we’re both crushed when the only true “dollar” store went to a buck-twenty-five.

I've heard conflicting stories about the Dollar Store dice. Some say they're great; others say the quality isn't so good. What are your experiences on the dice?

I have some that I use, and one pack that hangs on the wall as a decoration for my videos. The quality is adequate, but no more than that. IMO, of course.

If I remember right, the other colors were available when the dice first came out, but it seems no one bought the brown dice and that is all that is left. I've never seen them at my local store, but I have checked the website and a box of dice is available there.

You're probably right on the brown ones being the leftovers. I checked the website and that is the only color listed. :(

The first is a fuzzy photo of a Warhammer tyrannid, which could be any bug-like opponent for BFRPG. Overall, the Warhammer stuff is WAY too expensive but this set was a gift from my son who knows I like dorky stuff.

The second is a Dollar Tree alien. Give him a hold person spell like effect with that eye, and then three claw attacks and you're set

They work fine. I have a ton of other dice (don't we all) so they sneak into the lineup every so often, and I've never had any issues. My daughter has been buying me super nice Easy Roller dice for a couple Christmas/birthdays, those are fun to use. Particularly the metal (less frequently) and blood rock (more frequently) ones :D

Instead of 3 claw attacks, You could do a paralysis gaze attack and a sonic attack due that mouth looking like a speaker to me.

That's certainly a possibility too. Thanks for taking a look.
