Everyone has read the Grognardia post on why Zocchi dice are the most awesome, and yet many people I talk to are complaining about the price,
I was originally going to post that it is a die, less than a dollar. I spend what it would cost to get all the dice you would need for the DCC RPG every day on caffeine. etc.
I looked through my purchases of Gamescience dice in 2009, and noticed that the price I paid for my GameScience dice was 12$ for smoked quartz ink sets, and 9$ for black and white opaque inked sets. (standard 7 die sets) Individual dice were purchased for 1.75$
Checking the website it appears that un-inked opaque sets usually go for under 7$ while inked opaque sets sell for 12$ (which is more than I paid for mine) Translucent uninked sets go for 10$ with inked translucent sets for 15$. This is a 25% increase in price. All the information above is for 7 die sets.
The 12 die sets (with the extra specialty Zocchi Dice, d3/5 etc.) appear to be retailing (inked) for between 33$ and 40$! For 5 additional dice, they are asking for more than double the money! They want 7$ for a inked d3!
Clearly the solution is to travel back in time and purchase your dice in the past. I remember seeing the d3/d5/d7 etc on sale for under a dollar when there weren't any games that were using them.
I call shenanigans.
