Welcome, my fellow gamers! Today we're going to talk about a topic that some of you might not think is all that important, but trust me, it is. We're talking about dice trays, and why you absolutely need one if you want to be taken seriously as a tabletop gamer.
Now, some of you might be thinking, "What's the big deal? I just roll my dice on the table." And to that, I say, "Oh, my sweet summer child." You have no idea what you're missing. So without further ado, here are the top 5 reasons why you need a dice tray:
Reason #1: No More Runaway Dice
Have you ever been in the middle of a heated Dungeons & Dragons battle, about to roll the final blow against the big bad boss, when suddenly your d20 decides to go on a little adventure? It bounces off the table, rolls across the floor, and disappears under the couch. And you're left with that sinking feeling of knowing that your chance at victory just rolled away with your die.
Well, my friend, with a dice tray, that will never happen again. Your dice will be safely contained within the tray, and any rogue rolls will be stopped in their tracks. No more crawling around on the floor trying to find your d20. You'll be able to focus on the game, and not worry about losing your dice.
Reason #2: Protect Your Table
Let's face it, rolling dice on a table can be pretty rough on the table. Especially if you're rolling metal dice, or dice with sharp edges. You don't want to be the person who ruins your friend's fancy dining table with a poorly aimed d20.
With a dice tray, you don't have to worry about damaging your table! The tray will cushion the dice and prevent any damage to your playing surface. Plus, it just looks more professional to have a dedicated space for your dice.
Reason #3: Contain Your Excitement
We all have that one friend who gets a little too excited during games. Some of us -are- that friend. In the heat of battle they swing their imaginary sword, knocking over drinks and scattering dice everywhere. They're a hazard to themselves and everyone around them.
But with a dice tray, even the most excitable player can keep their enthusiasm contained. The tray will keep the dice in one place, so there's no risk of them flying across the room. And if your friend still manages to knock the tray over, well, that's on them.
Reason #4: Look Cool
Let's be real, having a dice tray just looks cool. It shows that you take your gaming seriously, and that you're willing to invest in the tools of the trade. It's like having a fancy set of dice or a leather-bound rulebook. It just makes you look like a pro.
Plus, there are so many cool designs and materials out there for dice trays. You can get one made out of wood, metal, or even 3D printed. You can get one with your favorite gaming logo or a custom design. The possibilities are endless.
Reason #5: It's Fun
At the end of the day, having a dice tray just makes the game more fun. It's one more little detail that adds to the overall experience. It's satisfying to hear the dice roll around in the tray, and it's fun to watch them bounce around before coming to a stop.
Plus, if you're really into ASMR (that's Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response for those who don't know), the sound of dice in a tray is pure bliss. It's like a little mini relaxation session during your game.
