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.

Are you specifically hoping to find an online resource that will provide you with a "retailer" or brick and mortar list? Otherwise, this is an odd question. Has Google been helpful? Maybe Amazon.de? Some sarcasm, yes, but this question is too vague I think. –  javafueled Dec 26 '13 at 21:33
    
Many countries have a business directory publicly available online (usually called "the Yellow Pages" here in North America), where you could search for "hobby shop" or "game stores" or the local equivalent. –  SevenSidedDie Dec 26 '13 at 21:41

@javafueled I mean brick-and-mortar, sorry that it wasn't clear. I've edited the question now –  Dakeyras Dec 26 '13 at 21:45
    
So you're looking for a list of brick and mortar dice shops, or a site that has that list? –  Phil 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.
