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.

  • \$\begingroup\$ So you're looking for a list of brick and mortar dice shops, or a site that has that list? \$\endgroup\$ – Wibbs Dec 26 '13 at 21:49
  • \$\begingroup\$ @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. \$\endgroup\$ – 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.

    \$\begingroup\$ 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). \$\endgroup\$ – Lyndon White Nov 7 '15 at 12:53
