Luxury dice are always a perfect gift for gamers, no matter what games they play. Level Up Dice carries a wide selection of small-batch dice made from aluminum, gemstones, heavy metals, and even plastic ones designed by famous artists. Each set is created with a limited run with different fonts, so you’re sure to get a truly unique set. These are dice made to last a lifetime and beyond. Heirloom pieces to really show off one’s love of gaming.
A newer arrival on the luxury wooden accessory scene, Master Monk creates beautiful dice towers, trays, and vaults from various exotic hardwoods. The best part is that each piece is meant to be stored together as a full system to make it easy to carry your accessories with you. Nothing makes a great gift like a custom engraved dice vault for a gamer to store their favorite set of polyhedral in.
The Broken Token makes all sorts of wooden game inserts, crates, and upgraded game components for tons of popular board games. They’ve even got a line of terrain for miniatures games. Prices vary but are reasonable throughout their line. Whether you want to organize the inside of a game better or invest in a storage solution for your favorite game, The Broken Token is one of the best at what they do.
The ALPHA is a giant folding game table meant for miniatures gamers, but useful for any purpose. The 6’x4′ has folding legs and folds down to 1/4th the size. It’s perfect for people who don’t have a dedicated gaming space in their residence or those who travel to play. Sturdy and resilient, it’s a much cheaper option than a luxury wooden gaming table.
