Size and Font by Manufacturer

From Dice Codex
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This guide describes the physical characteristics of products of current dice manufacturers. Bulk dice seller (HD, Wiz, etc) products are described on Size and Font by Manufacturer - Bulk/Reseller Manufacturers. Descriptions of companies that have, unfortunately, gone out of business, are on Size and Font by Manufacturer - The Founders. Due to the frequent mold changes in the 1980's and 1990's, there may be additional variants in existence from these manufacturers.
