Cliffside Bunker Battle Dice (UPDATED)

    Hey everyone,

    Around this time last year I shared an idea with the community via my YouTube channel about custom dice for playing Axis & Allies games. Well… I have found some partners and a manufacturer to help me make that idea a reality.

  • Looks great!


  • What kind of price per set are you thinking?
    How about country specific option…ie
    black with one iron cross
    green with 2 us flag
    Blue with 3 french surrender flags (lol)
    red with 4 hammer n sickles
    Maybe an orange/yellow with 5 for japan…5 for 5 and below on house rules
    Love your vids by the way

    Hey Bob, I like your suggestions, but we really need these dice to work for all Axis & Allies franchise games… so they have a mechanical purpose rather than a cosmetic one. Thanks for the comments.

    Sorry IL,

    Black = 1
    Green = 2
    Blue = 3
    Red = 4

    I’ve got my reasons for this color scheme.


  • I meant 2 options of the dice. You roll out ( no pun intended) your dice, THEN after you recoup the investment you offer the country specific. I only said those countries cause they tend to match your colored dice.


  • So are you going with these instead of the d8 dice

    I kind of like your idea about your battle dice idea Young Grasshopper, but why are you going to use rounded corner dice???

    So the Larry-Marx Formula can be actualized on a higher level with D8.

    Because that’s the type of dice Axis & Allies players have been rolling for decades.

    I would definitely be interested in these!


  • Thanks for making these reality YG.  You mentioned that you have a reason behind your color choices.  Do you mind me asking, out of curiosity, what that reasoning is?


  • Nice job YG! It might be too early but can you ballpark the price for a set of these dice? Are you going to sell them yourself or kickstarter or sell them through one or more of the gaming companies?

    My reasons would sound very superficial to many people, but I can say that they involve information recognition, and subliminal association (if any of that helps).

    No promises, we are still working out many details… but retail cost would be anywhere from $40 to $50 a set, each set would consist of 10 dice per colour, so 40 dice total. We are currently working out a deal with Historical Board Gaming for distribution… no plans for pre-order or crowdfunding on the 6 sided, but our future plans for our 8 sided dice will require more backing… all this however, is speculative ball parking at the moment.

    No, subliminal/intuitive association makes perfect sense to me.  The colors of the IWNGU dice were very intuitive to me.  The color scheme seems like a “heat (hit) index” - White (1), Yellow (2), Orange (3), Red (4).  The “hotter” the dice, the more hits it should make.

    I loved what IWNGU did with their hit dice, but at the last time I checked, the yellow and orange were far too close in tone to tell apart at a quick glance, which was a shame… did they ever fix that issue?

    all chessex dice have round corners, which make them spinners.  Only casino dice have sharp corners, which only spin on firm surfaces.  At least those are my observations looking over the 2 booths at gencon

    $40 to $50 CAD per set? Or USD
