Anyone here collect them?

Where is a good place to find them online?

Price and availability seem to be hard to match up, and I figured I was not looking in the right places.

Which ones do yall have, and use?

I have a f*ing ton from the prerelease kits. Each one comes with a 20-sided die; and I usually buy all five (from each prerelease event my lgs holds) so I end up with 5 die per release lol

Have you considered trying to collect all the spindowns greyninja?

Found this and it made me think to ask if anyone else was collected them, and how difficult it is to find the ones you want.

@Didgeridooda whoa cool, thanks for the link. It's neat to see the variations throughout the years

I likely won't spend money on 20-sided die since I already have so many. I'd maybe trade ones I have for those sets where I don't, but I mostly use two 10-sided die for EDH since you start at 40 life and I pick those up at my lsg

For Magic, I tend to use the numerous dice I've received from Prereleases. The beautiful blue from Amonkhet, and the Blue/Pink ones from Dragons of Tarkir are my favourites. Dragons is the only time I've ever bought I ever purchased a spindown counter--my girlfriend and I ended up with four of the five at release, so naturally we had to finish the set.

I'm not really a fan of the speckled pattern Wizards keeps using, but I probably have dozens of those things sitting around.

There's some beautiful polyhedral dice sets made from assorted stones--I have a set of bloodstone, opal, and several colours of quartz at my house for D&D. Alas, I just did a search on the two stone dice stores I've used, and neither had spindown dice.
