Our Curated List of Custom Dice Trays
So the goal here was to have a spot for our favorite dice trays. There are just so many options, and we can’t buy them all. I personally like to have a few of them and change it up from time to time.
I find that I also have some I use at home, and others I take with me if I’m traveling to the FLGS.
At this point in my life, I’m more about the aesthetics of the gear I have. I just want it to look cool, while also being functional.
I’m really feeling the longer style of trays now though like this one.
We will keep adding to this but for now, have a look at the ones we like most.

What are Dice Trays?
Simply put, dice trays serve two purposes. One is to keep the dice on the table, visible to all players, and reduce the chances of an obscured roll to near zero. It’s functional and keeps the game moving.
The other purpose is frankly that they can look cool 🙂 You can get dice trays in all shapes and sizes, in a wide variety of materials. Leather, wood, plastic, even stone.
You can craft your own or buy someone else’s work. In some cases, they are works of art, gorgeously fashioned pieces. In others, it’s a simple plastic box that keeps your dice from clattering around.
What Should I Look For?
The main considerations you need to factor in are size, shape, and portability. Will it fit easily on your table. Will it hold the amount of dice you typically throw?
Some games like Warhammer can have a large number of dice being thrown at a time. DnD is typically less. So find something that fits your needs.
The other thing is portability. If you need to take this to your weekly game, it needs to be able to travel.
Dice Trays are different from dice towers.
