Dice can be excellent conversation pieces.  These little gems, for instance, left on my desk at work, have proven to be eye-catching and good to start conversation.

Gearpunk Seven Set

These are my Gearpunk dice, ones I designed, Shapeways printed, then I dyed and painted.  The hollow D4 (front, left) is my favorite of the bunch, simply because it’s a design that plays to the strengths of 3D printing, making a shape that would be difficult to produce with traditional dice molds, and a solution to reading the numbers that isn’t common among four-sided dice designs.  Maybe this blurs the line a little between simple dice and wargaming miniatures, but I’m happy playing in that space.  The Tinker Dice designs are more traditional, but the Gearpunk dice are more fun.
