Can anybody with both games feedback on their comparative sizes (and weight)?

It suddenly struck me how cool it would be if Dragon Dice could be used with custom cards for Quarriors. Since info can be put on the card, it would be quite simple to state what the differing die faces mean. Eg. 1 axe = 1 quiddity, 2 axe = 2 quiddity.

Same folder, very near the top: Dice Size. It says there that the Quarriors dice are 14mm.

Thanks. Couldn't find any similar info on the Dragon Dice forums though. Would be great if someone with both could feedback on how similar or disimilar they are when held in hand.

If I remember anything about Dragon Dice, it is that Dragon Dice come in a huge variety of sizes...

You are correct but amongst them is a lot of D6 dice as well, as evidenced in the 2nd image above.

Well, yeah, but there are multiple sizes of D6 in Dragon Dice as well, based on 1/2/3 hp creature.

Ah, I see. I have a bag of it at my parent's place but my memory of it has faded much.

The smallest Dragon Dice (the commons) are 15mm in size.
So I think your idea could work: I doubt anyone could distinguish between Dragon Dice and Quarriors dice inside the bag.

Yeah, I'd considered a similar project. I have a bunch of dice with varying numbers of pips on them (ranging from 1 to 6) and could easily construct modified cards to accommodate them.

I have a massive collection of Dragon Dice, so I can confirm all the sizes when I get home, but someone already mentioned that the smallest ones are 15mm. I can measure the weight/mass for you if you are interested.

I agree whole-heartedly with your assessment of using Dragon Dice alone, or perhaps WITH Quarriors. Easiest way to customize the game a step further, instantly. But this is a bit silly as I haven't even seen/touched/played with Quarriors as is/out of the box yet. The card mechanism to determine the value/property of the dice also eliminates the need to learn a lot of iconography to be able to play... Very slick indeed Wizkids, nice play.
