Stuff We Love: Spinning for a saving throw with a stylish dice ring

Ever since I started playing Dungeons & Dragons, I’ve accumulated a number of dice that come in all different designs. However, sometimes I don’t roll one of my d20s when the time comes for an ability check or attack roll. Occasionally, I’ll decide to go a slightly different route and instead of roll, spin with a dice ring!

CritSuccess is the company behind these clever dice-ring designs. Each one features numbers on the outer ring that correspond to the numbers on dice like a d20 or d12. With a quick touch, you can spin that part and the number that stops between the arrows is the one you use as your “roll.” There are a lot of options so you can basically use these instead of all or some of your dice.

I was hooked the moment I saw these rings and eventually purchased one while attending PAX East, where I went with a d20 in black. I’ve been wearing it for a while now and it still works like new. I love using it during D&D and outside of game, when I just need something to occupy myself with as I think.

There are other fun rings, too. You can get a ring to display your alignment so you can show your mood for the day, whether it’s lawful good or chaotic neutral. You can also keep track of your hit points and more with their counter ring. There are non-tabletop options as well like a rock, paper, scissors ring and Tarot card ring. The choices don’t end there. You can choose the color of your ring — black, blue, rainbow, or gold. The rings start at $19.99.

Whether you're looking for a new way to "roll" during your game or are just looking for a new piece of geeky jewelry to add to your outfit, these rings are worth a look!
