Hi Fellow geek,

I'm looking to buy dice, wooden cubes and tokens for PnP projects. Do you have any online shop to recommend that give good prices?

In particular, as I'm living in Singapore (some where in asia), i need the shop to have a good and cheap international shipping.

currenly i only looked at http://www.frpgames.com/. what are your experience with it for international sales? is there other shops that are cheaper when including the shipping?

thanks alot for you help!

Edit: It will be nice if the site also sell some blank indented dice. I'm looking for some but couldnt find a shop online

Does it have to be cubes? What about discs?
http://www.caseyswood.com

They have both cubes and discs, but the cubes are probably bigger than most games. I've purchased a bunch of discs from them and was quite happy, and I know someone in austrailia purchased them and the shipping was reasonable.

Also, since a lot of games are printed in China, surely there's some sources for that kinda stuff in China. That might be much cheaper in terms of shipping for you?

There's several other well known game parts places in US, I just don't recall them offhand (and I don't know if they ship international or not).

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

I would recommend taking a look at Great Hall Games. They have a great selection of items you are looking for;

http://www.greathallgames.com/

note: blank cubes are located under "dice and accessories" as d6 items.

The only thing I am unsure of is shipping cost to Singapore, as Great Hall Games are located in Texas, United States. I hope this will help and wish you the best in regard to your project!

The comments below are limited to a European perspective:

When I've needed cheap components and am not too bothered about specific colours, shapes etc. buying heavily discounted games does the job.

For example, in the Spiele Offensive (in Germany, excellent mail-order service) sale:
http://www.spiele-offensive.de/Kat/Sonderangebote.html
There are some big box games with loads of components (such as Alexander the Great) for just a few euros.

I've no idea about the postage to Singapore

wow, some of the games there are really really cheap! i saw a game that's only 2.99 euro and from the look on the BGG page, it does have a lot of cubes and disc

i tried to navigate the site with google translate but wasnt too succesful. do you know what does "Mindermen-genzuschlag da unter 15€" means? and how do i check what will be the shipping cost? will be grateful if you can direct me!

Alright then - but my German is very limited.whistle

I reckon the 15 euros is a minimum order value.

The postage is listed at:
http://www.spiele-offensive.de/Versandkosten
It's a flat rate to the rest of the world of 31 euros for an order over 40 euros with a package under 20kg. Which means it's only going to be worthwhile if you want a lot of stuff or can talk your friends into a joint order; and can guarentee that Singapore Customs aren't going to take an interest in a massive box of games.

The Kontakt link at the top right will give you the E-mail addresses, they'll almost certainly be able to read+write perfect English
