Wooden Dice!

Finally back in front of a laptop and not just my phone.  Has been a crazy week followed by a long weekend out of town.

Here are my Yucatan Rosewood Polys.  Was one of the initial offerings before the public release.  The green inlays aren't for everyone but I love them.  First picture is on our bay windowsill in natural light on a sunny day.  Second picture is in my photo booth and a little diffused lighting (nothing fancy).

As advertised, they are light in the hand, but have a much more pleasing texture compared to boring plastic.  

We have another D20 that arrived Friday, but I scrammed out the door to make our weekend commitment and only just opened it.  It's intended for Mrs. Zoxe, so she needs to see it before I post pics. :)

They are stunning @Zoxe.   This BoRo lover gives 2 thumbs up!

I'm having dice fantasies thinking about what's in the next dice drop.  DMG hasn't disappointed me yet.

Pretty! Honestly I think the green inlay works really well!

New arrivals: Tambootie, Leopardwood, and Pink Ivory/Pink Elephant D6.  Note: something rotated the picture 90 degrees.  >:(

The one on the right looks like olivewood.

On the left - looks like it might be a pale yucatan rosewood.

Eric, my guesses would be rosewood, bloodwood, and olive or marble wood on the right.

I need to get pics of my dice done.

I'm a bit surprised how difficult it is for me to tell the difference between the Tambootie and the dark Olivewood set that I picked up (and that's assuming I've got them correct to begin with) :D

I had that problem with my Ziricote and Chacate Preto.  But I'm giving myself a pass because according to Mike "It is visually almost identical to Ziricote"

I'm pretty sure I have them right.  I just was surprised how dark the olivewood set is, given the color of most of the olivewood dice.

I'm expecting another die today or tomorrow, but here's my stash so far, minus the Chacate Preto which has found a new home with Jaemus.

I'm still a little annoyed I missed out on the dark olive set.  You beat me by about 10 seconds!  But I ended up with my dark bloodwood set, so it work out good for everyone.

Nice collection.  More woods than I have at the moment in them.

But I do have two full poly sets (Tambootie and Olivewood) and 6 singles (Blackwood, Bloodwood, Yucatan Rosewood, Chacate Preto, Timborana and Bocote).

forgot that Timborana and Yucatan

You definitely had your shot.  That was up for almost quite a bit before I bought that one.  I think almost a day in fact

I know.  But then we both tried to pull the trigger at the same time.   Weird.

I didn't realize we had raced on that.

I knew I raced on the Tambootie set, and some of the d20s.

I ended up having a lot of favorites.  The mulberry was a cool surprise as the picture was all sap wood.  The redwood really shines.  The leopardwood is sick.

Wowsa that’s quite a collection you are amassing!  I like the variety  you’ve got going.  What’s left on your want list?

I got an email message from a DMG mole that I missed out.

Chakte Viga is the one that's coming today or tomorrow (plus a sheaf for my bloodwood polys).  Pau Rosa is on my to do list.  And I'm working on @Konas for another pink elephant D6.
