Dice Rings is an interesting product up on Kickstarter. They’re Dice. They’re Rings. They’re Dice Rings.

From the campaign:

What is a Spinner Ring?

A spinner ring is designed in a way that an outer smaller ring spins in a grooved inner ring that slips onto your finger.

Features of Dice Rings

Portable – You can take dice rings anywhere. No worries about rolling them into a heater duct or losing them to a hungry pet. They will stay firmly attached to your hand. Unless you’re a zombie… then no guarantees.

Made from stainless steel – Our rings are made from the highest quality 316L stainless steel, a very strong and durable alloy that resists scratches, dents, and unorthodox abuse (troll punching). Like most other jewelry (even gold), it is an alloy. This type of steel contains 10-14% Nickel. For anyone who does not have a sensitivity to Nickel, these rings will be perfect for you. Unfortunately, we just could not get a hold of any adamantium or vibranium.

Produces fair rolls – The numbers are well distributed across the outer spinning band. There are no concentrations of high/low numbers, so they cannot be purposely aimed for or avoided. No cheese rolls.

Occupies idle hands – It is an awesome accessory to occupy idle hands and calm your mind. Spinner rings (also called worry rings) are frequently used as a stress relief tool, and are beloved by people with ADD everywhere.

Stylish – With these you are looking nerd chic!

    Probably the coolest and most innovative thing from the geekworld in… well, at least 2012….

    I could have sworn that I saw a D6 version of this for sale already at a craft show. Regardless, a great tool for LARPers.

      Spinning rings aren’t that new a concept, so it’s possible this has been done before.

      That aside, this is a very kewl idea indeed.

        Reasonably priced too, and it looks like they put some effort into ensuring that they are a quality product.

    Best Kickstarter video ever? I likes to roll me own dice but agree this is great for LARPers.

  • How long has this been running? Seem’s like it’s been on there forever. Wish I had some money to spend I would Kick it.

    I was just trying to imagine playing 40k with these things. You’d need like 5 rings on each finger of both hands just to roll an average shooting phase. It would be like brass knuckles. lol

      That’s what the 20d6 bracelet is for.
