I was randomly browsing the internet, when I stumbled across what was described as "special game party machine Children dices bosons"

And the picture looked like this:



Which I thought was hilarious and appropriate for this forum.

"20pcs 16MM Table DICE Transparent Green with WHITE number 1-4 star 5-6"

Check out the Kickstarter Project, Arkham Dice by Tom Wilfong...while it's over, he may have extra for sale.

Cheers,
Joe

Wow, that's a pretty amazing deal for custom dice. Thanks for the link!

EDIT: I just placed my order for these dice as well. IMO, 20 dice for $8 ($0.40 per die), plus free shipping for those of us in the States, is a very reasonable deal. If people care I will post my thoughts on the quality of the dice when I receive them. Note that this deal expires in 3 days (Oct 27th?), then they are $10.

EDIT AGAIN: I received my dice on Nov 1st. A few observations:
- Dice are engraved with the numbers and Elder Signs. In other words, the markings are not simply imprinted on this dice.
- Paint quality of numbers and Elders Signs are quite good. No immediately noticeable imperfections. Much better than some dice I have received from other vendors (yes, I'm talking to you, Wizkids!). In case this matters to you, the paint used on these dice does NOT glow in the dark.
- The green plastic is somewhat transparent, as seen in the photo above. Some of the edges are slightly scuffed, but this is only really noticeable in direct light.
- Bonus! With my 20 green Arkham Horror dice also I received a free ten-sided percentile dice in my order. Specifically, it is a "sparkly" ivory-colored die with engraved numbers painted in gold. It was wrapped separately in the same package, and I assume this was a gift. I am very impressed by this.
- A real bargain in my book, even at $10!

Those transparant green ones look almost awesome, but the big white 'regular numbers' kindof ruin it IMHO.

@ Sergei : wow, that sucks dude. Hope you didn't pay too much (including shipping and such).

A real shame to see what happened to those dice...

Bought one lot of those transparent green dice - 20 dice in it.

Should be a nice addition to AH.

The design is a bit busy. Numbers could be much smaller, without the tentacles. The 5 side looks like the best design for the 5 & 6.

The design in the first post is better, but as noted could have much smaller numbers in the corners for 1-4.

Tom's recent Arkham dice Kickstarter attracted over 800 buyers for this type of design including cursed and blessed dice too.

Indeed, there's too much on there to be clear.
I mean, it's cool what you're doing with the tentacle and all. But if you need to look twice to see what you rolled, then a die isn't properly working IMHO.
I think you need to choose between a big&pretty tentacle/elder sign art, or a big&pretty number art, but not both.

Also: I ended up passing on Tom's awesome KS, because he chose to go for square corners. I want my dice to roll, so rounded corners are a must for me. (...and I like to use 12mm dice nowadays, also for the rolling aspect.)

Ditto for me! Tom's original design was awesome, but I just couldn't get happy with his new square corners

Also, I just wanted to reiterate that I was pleasantly surprised with the dice mentioned by the OP. Decent quality, and a real bargain!

I can only confirm all your positive observations. Same here, except I got one d6 (white) and one d4 (transparent green) included as a gift. Great deal!

Finally got mine, and they look just as good.
I got a transparent blue d10 and a pink d6
