Colour Lux Mini Hexagon Dice Tray and Dice Tower -Symphony Red
C4Labs offers the first dice tray and tower combo on the list. The tray is a modest 7”x5.5”x1” but is constructed with wood, velvet, clear acrylic, and steel.
The Colour Lux Mini Hexagon Dice Trays and Towers feature a selection of pearlescent acrylic colors. The tray and tower come fully assembled and ready to use. The design is compatible with all RPGs, however, the construction of this set may be better suited for non-metallic or stone dice.
The set is visually appealing but probably best kept in a single location as it offers little in the way of travel protection.
Sleeping Dragon Dice Tray with Metal DND Die Set and Crystals
This dragon-shaped dice try from Dahan Dice is something different. The dragon-shaped tray is made from resin. The tray comes with a set of solid metal RPG dice containing the 7 standard pieces and 15 gem-shaped resin counters that can be used with a variety of RPGs.
It also includes 2 velvet dice bags for storing the dice and counters. The piece weighs 15.2 oz. and the tray measures 4.7″ in diameter.
