I’m almost certain that this is a dumb question but I have noticed that clear dice are sought after so I was wondering if this dice was rare like a clear one.

No most people want completly clear ones but I think it is cool.


#3

nothing specially appealing to me. I’d love to see CW with other shapes, not always dices or bouncy balls.


#4

That’s one of the dice that Ricerocket was drilling before Duncan started to uphold their patent. They’re a little heavier than the Duncan dice, but they’re nice.


#5

It’s a CW so not matter how rare it is it’s not going to sell for much.

It’s worth as much as you want it to. C=

Waht

Its worth too much and not enough at the same time.


#8

You’d be very surprised to see how much clear dice trade / sell for then…but I agree; it is worth as much as you want it to be worth…

I’ve seen some people trade 100+ dollar throws for one dice…others have paid upwards of 70$ for one.

I personally would enjoy having one (they’re pretty swagger) but would never consider spending more than maybe 5$ on one.

Dang and I thought I was an impulse buyer…


#10

All the fun of clear dice, but round, cheaper, and there’s 10 of them. (and very high quality, I may add)


#11

thats pretty awesome. i personally like heavier cw’s such as the duncan yellow ball, which is perfect. if that die is heavy, it would be heaven. i love my custom bearingized cw, but i wish it was heavier. that die looks like the best of both worlds.

Why in the heck would a cw be worth that much??


#13

Demand, hype, rarity.

Same reason the Peak, SADR, or similar throw is worth as much as they are.


#14

If you are near or ever been to any gaming convention or comic convention they are selling dice by the thousands all shapes sizes colors and numbers. So, a rare one? hard to say because you really can find all different types and colors everywhere. Just depends on how much you want to look.


#15

The clear dice aren’t like normal dice. They are super easy to tell apart from a standard gaming dice thus preventing rip off’s of the original.

I believe Duncan actually has a patent on them as well.

Many have tried to find a substitute…

The clear Delrin balls are pretty cool…except you have to drill your own holes in them…no biggy.


#16

They are acrylic balls, not delrin. Big difference :slight_smile:

Also, drilling a hole in a counterweight is actually pretty easy if you have a drill, and most people have a drill. It’s better than paying $50+ for a clear polycarbonite countweight.


#17

Whether it is clear or not - is immaterial. The dice are made of plastic and are therefore, not valuable whether clear or not. A certain famous yoyo yoyo-museum/store in Chico California has bins of those things. Call them.

The only valuable dice are bakelite/catalin or celluloid - and they are around 100 years old. Now some nice bone dice - dated from the first century, Rome - now that would be a valuable CW.


#18

Whatever. Delrin, polycarb, acrylic. Regardless of what they’re made of I still agree with you on the fact that they are an alternative…but people want clear dice for a reason.

They may be worthless in reality…but people do pay out the rear for them.

Just like they do anything else.

Whether it be rare Pokemon, MTG, Yugioh cards, yoyo’s, etc;

No need to sharpshoot something so trivial dude.

Like Arussell said. You won’t find a dice made like the ones Duncan have. They are highly sought after. you may not see it as much now but if you were around longer you’d know.


#19

I know Jon Rob has 4… I had a huge conversation about them saturday with him about them.


#20

I really don’t understand why people want a clear dice so much
