About



A Dice Tray and Dice Bag in one!

The Dice Friend is a simple to use, durable Dice Tray that transforms into a Dice Bag with a couple of snaps!


Our elegant dice trays are designed to keep dice contained, preventing them from falling off the table, knocking over components and wreaking general havoc.

But wait - there’s more! The Dice Friend is equipped with a special press stud system, allowing you to snap it into a portable dice bag with a couple simple clicks. Rest your precious dice collection, safely tucked into your pocket or backpack!


Please note that shipping costs are not included in the pledges. They are presented in a table further down this page.

There are many designs to choose from and even more are set to be unlocked during the campaign! Mix and match as you please, or even use your own image!

You will be able to choose from any of the unlocked designs after the campaign ends, in the Pledge Manager. Spread the word and help us unlock more stretch goals to have more choice!

Risks and challenges

We're an international supplier of playmats and game accessories. We serve retail customers, often to individual clients' specifications, either with one of our existing products or according to a given customer's design. We also ship wholesale orders to retailers and publishers such as Lucky Duck Games (Vikings Gone Wild), Phalanx (uBoot, Hannibal&Hamilcar), Q Workshop (Cthulhu mats) and Rebel/Asmodee (Keyforge official vault tour mats).

We have a reliable production line and a trusted logistical network that has fulfilled many bulk orders. Our worldwide shipping expertise allows us to minimise the risk of the project being delayed, while our ongoing commitment to quality gives us confidence in providing you with a product you'll be proud of.

We are manufacturing neoprene dice trays for over a year at this point so the Dice Friend will basically be an upgrade to an existing product. The main challenge that's still ahead of us is the aesthetic side. We created many beautiful designs, some are very generic while the others are specifically created to suit a particular setting like Call of Cthulhu. But even though we are gamers just like you, we might have missed something. Feel free to tell us in the comments if there's any specific niche you'd like our Dice Friend to fill!
