Is there an online resource that lets me find places where I can get dice? I'm currently in Germany, but an international resource would be good too. By places, I mean physical shops - not a list of web pages.

It doesn't have to be a list of shops that sell just dice - anywhere that has, amongst other products, the usual range of 7 dice would make me happy.

So you're looking for a list of brick and mortar dice shops, or a site that has that list? – Wibbs Dec 26 '13 at 21:49
@Phil If this were a question for a list of German brick-and-mortar dice shops, that'd be off-topic for at least two reasons, so definitely a site with a list. – Dakeyras Dec 26 '13 at 22:05

In most countries, finding an actual roleplaying game shop („Rollenspiel-Shop“) specifically is usually pretty hit-and-miss, though worth trying as a first pass. To find a polyhedral dice supplier you often have better luck by doing a second pass looking for boardgame („Brettspiel“) and hobby retailers, to expand your sources.

Then, armed with a list of local shops, you dial 'em up and ask about their stock.

To do the searching, your best bets are Germany's equivalent to the Yellow Pages, Gelbe Seiten*, and the localised version of Google Maps.

Other places I have had good luck with are Newsagents (Got my first dice from one, they kept a box behind the counter), and Educational Suppliers (they use them to teach math, I got very cheap dice there). – Oxinabox Nov 7 '15 at 12:53

If international is okay, barring stuff like Amazon, go with, which has physical shops as well as online resources. Also try Dale's cards and comics, and Petries family games. However, any shop with role-play is worth a try.

Lists are not good answers, teach a man to fish instead. – mxyzplk Nov 7 '15 at 3:16
