“Color code your dice.” Sounds pretty nerdy, right? Well, it is (go figure) — but it works.
My dice bag contains a range of dice, but each die type is different from nearly all of the others. So instead of a couple of complete polyhedral sets, my d6s are one color/variety, my d4s are another, etc.
This lets me grab the dice I need quickly, which can be handy when the action heats up and I don’t want to lose any precious momentum. It’s by no means a necessity (I’m probably in the minority here), but it works for me.
Give it a shot sometime. Like me, you might find it hard to go back!
