I was hoping to pick up a spare set of Doom Dice to use for some custom weapon rules, but I've found out after emailing FFG that they are out, and may or may not produce more.

So My question is this; Do Decent dice have the same number/type of markings on them (I realize the symbols are different, but other than that)?

Thanks Everyone

I would recommend blank dice in the right colors and a fine point sharpie. I saw some blanks in just those colors at my FLGS they were made by Koplow http://www.koplowgames.com/page47.html.

He's right because I got one of the last few of the engraved replacement sets in the mail about a week ago.

As far as making them goes, I think your best option would be to print the dice face images on self-adhesive labels, cold laminate them and stick them on dice that have recessed faces. I just got done making 20 more Doom dice (I hate passing dice during games) using the dice from the 2003 TMNT game I found on ebay. If you're only making one set then I'd look into boggle jr. dice (the ones with the blue letters) as you get 8 of them and it appears from the gallery pictures that the dice faces are recessed enough to hold labels.

Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast.

I would like to email FFG and request that they make more. Can someone tell me the email address? I've noticed lately that my dice are wearing a little and while looking for new scenarios and such here saw a ton of threads that say effectively "I got cool non-wearing out dice for nothing! How awesome!" and then this thread which says "No more". I think that if the game is still being actively sold in shops that they are probably going to get more people wanting the dice that won't wear out. I've only played the game 10-15 times and a couple of the common dice bullet holes are faded.

Can anyone tell me where to find the email address so that they will at least know there is still demand and they could sell these dice?

Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies, and…read the rulebook again.

Dang! Engraved replacement set! I was one of those chumps that bought some blanks, printed up some new faces, and stickered a new set.

I just recieved the 2nd version, the silk screened dice (or was that the first?). Going to do the clear-coat trick on them, and I'll might still make a 3rd set :)

As far as I can tell, one hasn't been able to "buy" Replacement Doom Dice from FFG since at least November 2008, so don't kick yourself too hard for missing the boat.

From what I can tell, Customer Service is still willing/able to help players who have lost dice, and *need* replacements, for the time being, at least.

Wow... third game in on my first edition set on the weekend. Some of the blue ones are nearly unreadable.

I'm going to try engraving them and painting the gaps. Wish me luck and a steady hand!
