Totally Crucial Opinion Poll!

Yesterday I received my first ever set of Gamescience dice!

Yes, I have gulped the Elitist Dice Marketing Kool-Aid!

I now have eight precision edge high impact dice - the standard 7-piece set plus an old-school 0-9 d20, all in opaque crimson.

... but what color should I ink the number with? I have no idea! Tell me!

(not red, smartass)

  1. I'd do white if I had it available.

    If not, black is always the obvious answer.

  2. White is most readable on red in variable lighting conditions. A white gel pen does the job well -- just be careful to let it dry properly before handling, it takes a bit longer than spirit-based sharpies

  3. Sky blue. Love that contrast.

  4. Yellow. Gives it that "oh your PC is on fire" effect.

  6. I prefer white. Here's my attempt at inking some opaque GameScience dice with white acrylic.

  7. For maximum contrast, how about bright green.

  8. I did mine in purple. That didn't work. Neither did green. So I went with black.

  10. Lime green crayon, if those are the type of dice that you can color with rubbing crayon on them.

  11. Totally white on red for legibility

  12. I’ve found that white crayon works best on every color I or my friends have. Even when I thought it wouldn’t be. On the other hand, all our GS dice (so far) are gems rather than opaques.

    My gf is an assistant principal at an elementary school. She asked the teachers if they happened to have any unused white crayons, and they did! We’re supplied with dice crayons for life now. ^_^
