In playing Waldschattenspiel, we have problems reading the die in the dark.

Does anyone know where I could buy some illuminated dice with perhaps LEDs?

I tried doing a web search, but all I get is patents, or a dice table lamp. Besides some of the hits are coming up casinos, which is blocked for me.

I tried chessex, but could not find them there either.

Can someone point out some to me?

Or for just glow in the dark:

Yes, that might work. Too bad they are out of stock! Are these really balanced to be dice?

I saw something similar on eBay, but I do not need to buy a 6 pack.

Are there any other kinds that people know about? I would like to use it as an actual die.

I didn't notice they were out of the red. They have blue and green versions still in stock. No clue about rolling them. You could try contacting the manufacturer:
http://www.lightgod.com/store/product.asp?id=3484&catid=595
about the rolling properties. I think your best bet is the glow in the dark versions. Anything else is going to be inherently unbalanced.

I'm betting that they aren't.

How about using over-sized white dice (with dark numbers/pips)? Some external light is still required, but they'd be easier to read.

As for glow-in-the-dark dice (the kind charged under a lamp), they don't stay visible for long.

Thank you all. I will write to them and see if they are balanced.

I will also try to get some of the glow in the dark ones.

Those look pretty good and would work. I wonder where I can get only 1 of them, rather than 100!

A lot of craft stores carry "glow in the dark" paint, might be able to modify some existing dice by painting the pips.

Here are illuminated dice-like objects, but I have not tried them. This discussion has piqued my interest. Please do report your results once you've made an attempt.

OK, I got these. They are pretty cool, and not very expensive. Even the shipping was not that expensive. I went ahead and ordered 2. I think this will work fine! Thank you!

I think I got mine off that site somewhere. I don't remember exactly. There are a number of places I have seen electronic dice. This is my note in the purchase field:

2007-06-02: Purchase electronic dice from TheGameStation for $5.45.

I cannot find them on the site. I do see they have some neat glow in the dark dice that would work well.

These days you could use your iphone. Sheesh. How times have changed.

P.S. Mischa, I might have a 2nd set or something similar. Send me a private mail with your home address and I should be able to send you one. I only think you need one with Waldschattenspiel, right?

I did some research on this a while ago, and found these on the fabulous dealextreme:

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.8669


http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.18808


http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5923 (single)
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5492 (multipack)


I think the second is (temp?) out of stock.

There are a number of free ones, but check out Dicenomicon. I don't know what it costs, but friends have it and it's pretty useful.

If you're looking for an iPhone app, PIP is the best! If all you need is six-sideds of ONE COLOR, then Motion-X is what you need because it's free!
