I wanted to buy some Chessex Frosted Blue Dice but I am unsure if its 12mm or 16mm dice that come with the game.

IF anyone has frosted dice did you get the Caribbean blue or the darker frosted blue? Are you happy with your decision? Did you buy 30?


THANKS!

12mm will be the size you are looking for if you want to match what comes in the game.

went with a set of these.

Easier to see and white fits the theme a little better than blue.

The rulebook for real life doesn't specify that you always round down. $10.91 is more $11 than $10. Also Peter is in the UK, so probably for him it'll be much more than $10.

Haha what's a $1 anyways. I do think know how much you make at your job but I'm sure 5 minutes of work gets you a dollar.

I have these and wish I had ordered the blue. Believe it or not they are harder to see (I think since I've never seen the blue in person) and I just use the included ones instead.

Too late to cancel now... soblue

But it's gotta be at least better than the dice I got with the game.

Yes
12mm is the way to go. They match the size of the ones included in the game.
Just don't make the same mistake I did. I bought the frosted white with black pips, they blend with the board and components shake
Time to buy the blue ones

But what color are the dice, really?
Are they blue and white? Or are they black and gold?

I have the frosted white with black pips and they are AWESOME. I haven't heard anyone say that they seem difficult to see, and several people have commented on how awesomely they fit the theme.

I'm very glad I stuck with the dice that look like actual ice, rather than getting blue ones that looked like a frozen block of toilet cleaner.

I have seen no problems at all with them blending into the backgrounds - you roll your dice and place them on your player board - why are you people throwing these things all over the middle of your boards?

I ended up going overboard and bought 16 mm Chessex Frosted dice at a discount in five varieties, took out 8 each to use in Dead of Winter and give different color dice to each player:

Frosted Blue with White
Frosted Caribbean Blue with White
Frosted Teal with White
Frosted Clear with Black
Borealis Aquerple with Black (sort of a glittery snow feel)

I have extra dice from each set that I can use for other games and it looks great in Dead of Winter.
