How many dice are required?

The standard amount of dice per player is 6. Ideally you want a 4 sided die (aka a D4), a D6, a D8, a D10, a D12 and a D20. You also need a D100, aka a percentile dice.

How many D6 do you need?

The only die that you really need more than one of is the humble d6. d20 – handy to have two, so you can roll attacks or checks with advantage/disadvantage. d12 – only need one.

Why does a d10 have a 0?

The one with two digits is just telling you the tens digit, and the one with one digit is the ones digit. If you’re rolling only that die with 0, 10, 20, etc., then a 10 = a 1 and the 00 = a 10. 0 or 00 on a d10 just means the highest number.

Should I buy more dice?

The more dice you have on hand, the faster you can get rolls done which keeps the game flowing. My players most often use d4s or d6s for damage dice – most have a bag each. If they need more dice, such as 8d6 for a spell, I have a stockpile of different dice I can lend to them for the session.

How many dice is a DM?

The dice set you linked to should have enough dice to make that happen. As a player and a DM I use four sets of distinct dice. Distinct sets can help you in swarm fights of lots of low damage so you match the d20 with the same set damage die like the d6 or d8.

How many dice do I need for Age of Sigmar?

40 is the most I could fit in my hand at once. Generally, the size of your biggest unit x the number of attacks they get. However if that number gets really big (like 50+) you’re probably going to want half or a third of that number because that many dice just gets unwieldy.
