I'd like to get a large dice bag to fit all the monsters in, but not sure what size I would need to fit them all and be able to mix them up while pulling one out. Anyone use a dice bag?

Thanks - although it looks like the shop is going to be closed for the next month.

Is this the largest bag? If so that would be 9" x 13".

I personally prefer the larger bag. The smaller bags are good for storing game bits, but not the best for drawing them out randomly.

Of course, you're required to follow the Crown Royal Rule: You're only allowed to use the bag once you've consumed all of the contents of the bottle.

This is assuming you're of legal age, enjoy responsibly, etc. etc.

Oddly, I've had in my possession for many years two Crown Royal bags despite having never actually purchased Crown Royal in my life. In fact, I'm not entirely certain how they came into my possession, so I simply assume that, as with many other consequences of being a gamer, they entered my collection through osmosis.

This also seems to be the case with many dice and other gaming paraphernalia.

Gamer Osmosis is a very real thing. I still have no idea where my Chessex Battle Mat came from...

I'm also pretty sure that dice breed while in close proximity. That's the only way to explain all the random d6's I keep finding.

Gaming and Crown Royal bags go hand in hand!!
One hand rolls dice, the other hand holds the Crown!

So you're the bastard who stole my Chessex Battle Mat. I took mine to a gaming store for a demo day of some sort, and it just grew tentacles and Cthulhu'ed right the f*** out of there.

I just use a gallon Ziploc that I keep under the table to blind draw. It holds all of the base game and expansion monster tokens, but I would not go much smaller than this if you still want to be able to sift around.

That explains why gaming groups keep going mad whenever I use it!
