As those of you who own this know, the dice are simple dice with the symbols cheaply painted on.

Being a long time Heroscape player, I have seen other peoples' dice get worn down and the paint almost completely worn off over time. There is a way to protect them. It involves coating them in a thin layer of clear nail polish. It protects them, makes them look fantastic, and they feel great.


I tried the same method to protect the Magic dice and got this:


The paint just became a smeared mess. Be warned!

That happens with a lot of painted dice. The problem is that one of the chemicals in the nail plush eats the paint. Thanks for the warning though. It is always good to know what games are effected by it.

I always use spray on clear coat. Much easier and doesn't have the issue.
