My hobbies are my wife, my daughter, collecting dice and computer.

history of my collection



NoD logo d6
Collecting started about 1991. That thime i only collected speckled dice from Chessex
All started with DSA (The black eye), a pen & paper rpg.
I got a speckled d20 (water) as gift from a friend.

I got some dice here and there. But collecting dice besides the speckled ones, was not so interesting
Around 2010 i started to collect different materials and shapes. A gemstone dice was the reason of this.
2012 i started the Facebook group "collecting dice / Würfel sammeln", which is now the official Dice Maniacs' Club community page.
At the end of 2012 i started my database with pictures of every single die.
2013 the collection expanded to 3000 dice
2014 the collection expanded to 6000 dice
Mid 2015 over 9000 dice. There was also a tv interview on the 14.11.2015 by the SWR.
