Dirt Cheap Dice Rolling Tray for £1!
I have to own up. I'm universally detested by any dice I use. If I was into my hobby for the win, I'd have left it long ago. But with my new modular terrain boards in full swing, there's not a lot of flat space to roll your dice on. And when you try, you should see the way they come flying back at you out of the crevices. On the rare occasion they go anywhere in the general direction you've rolled them (you know, rather than deviate at some alarming degree and head straight for your lovely painted miniatures) they have a habit of resting on a divot. Reading the roll is pure guesswork in these circumstances.
So in the interests of protecting both my models, my scenery and my sanity, I decided I needed to invest in something to solve the problem. I needed a Dice Rolling Tray. I did what anyone would do when faced with such a situation and a complete FLGS to go to. That's right. I started searching online. And boy is there a lot to choose from. If you have the cash, that is. A simple search on Google instantly took me from the rather nice Ultra Pro version which ranges in price from £12.99 to £25.77 depending on where you look, to ones from Wyrmwood which retail anywhere from £50 up. If you're like me and are on a low income, and thereby possessed of that rare quality of having more sense than money, you'll want to seek out a cheaper alternative.
Here's what I did.
I went to Poundland and purchased the following for the princely sum of... well... a pound, clearly.
(Did you see what I did there...?!?!)
