Yesterday I was fortunate enough to find a copy of Formula Dé in a thrift shop! It was missing 4 of the 7 dice, but everything else was complete and in decent shape. I spent yesterday evening searching all over this site, eBay, and the game publisher websites, but I can't find the dice for sale anywhere.

So can anyone tell me where I might be able to find a set of Formula Dé dice for sale, or do you perhaps have a set you would like to sell me?


 



Cheers!

1) I know the dice were sold separately at some time. I haven't seen them in my FLGS in a while but they may still have some.

2) In case you can't find them, the dice are:

d4 - 1st gear 1,1,2,2
d6 - 2nd gear 2,3,3,4,4,4
d8 - 3rd gear 4,5,6,6,7,7,8,8
d12 - 4th gear the numbers 7 through 12 twice
d20 - 5th gear the numbers 11 through 20 twice
d30 - 6th gear the numbers 21 through 30 three times
d20 - regular d20 used for starting position, body damage results, engine damage results.

2) Just out of curiosity, which ones are you missing? One is a normal d20, the die for 5th gear is a d20 with the numbers 11-20 twice, and the die for 6th gear is a d30 with the numbers 21-30 three times. I know the die for 4th gear is a d12 and I think it has the numbers 7-12 twice.

The normal d20 is a simple fix. If I'm right about 4th gear, you can just use d6+6 and you can use d10+10 for 5th and d10+20 for 6th.

I'm sure someone else can give you the breakdown for the dice for 1st through 3rd gears.


Black D20 - Numbers 1-20 - Missing

Yellow D4 - Numbers 1-2 - Present

Orange D6 - Numbers 2-4 - Missing

Red D8 - Numbers 4-8 - Missing

Green D12 - Numbers 7-12 - Present

Purple D20(?) - Numbers 11-20 - Missing

Blue D30 - Present

Or you can play as with the earlier Formule Dé edition. It has just a D20 with 1-20, and a lookup table:
Gear 1: 1-10=1, 11-20=2
Gear 2: 1-5=2, 6-10=3, 11-20=4
Gear 3: 1-2=4, 3-5=5, 6-10=6, 11-15=7, 16=20=8
Gear 4: 1-3=7, 4-6=8, 7-9=9, 10-12=10, 13-16=11, 17-20=12
Gear 5: 1-2=11, 3-4=12, 5-6=13, 7-8=14, 9-10=15, 11-12=16, 13-14=17, 15-16=18, 17-18=19, 19-20=20
Gear 6: 1-2=21, 3-4=22, 5-6=23, 7-8=24, 9-10=25, 11-12=26, 13-14=27, 15-16=28, 17-18=29, 19-20=30

I have an unopened set of mint condition Formula De dice!
If you are interested just contact me via geek mail.

I purchased a couple of tracks a few years ago on ebay and the seller sent a pack of extra dice free with our purchase.

I'm not interested in making a bundle here.
Maybe just some geek gold or shipping cost alone...either would be fine!

You can also email Asmodee Games and they may be able to supply you with more sets of dice and cars.

I had e-mailed them recently about extra dice sets and they said they were not available, and they weren't planning on selling them.

Go to ebay, do a world wide search. I have bought a couple of sets off an EBAY.FR user. From memory it cost me about 7 or 8 Euros including postage to Australia.

Actually you can probably find an old thread here where I have given the link to the user or the search I used (I can't find it at the moment, but it is here somewhere).

EDIT - Someone else has linked to the same guy, a few posts down in this thread

I assume everyone has d6s around the house. D20s are also pretty common. So if you get a hold of a d8 you're good to go, just have a note of what each number on the die really represents. For example for the d8: 1=>4, 2=>5, 3+4=>6, 5+6=>7, 7+8=>8. It would at least hold you off until you can get your hands on the real thing (as by the look of it won't be too far away).

Not all of them. The 5th 6th gear die is missing from Mini, it only uses 5.

Wouldn't the 6th gear die be missing as well then?

In case anyone looks here for information on dice, Asmodee is finally selling dice packs for Formula D on a card. Here is one place that has them:
