I like that the gif shows a critical miss every time. Is that to use them all up before you need to roll for real?
I have the d20, d100, and 3d6 version of the rings. I can roll my stats, check psionics, and critical hit you with just my jewelry
I’ve got the D20 version of this, which is pretty much worthless. Despite following every instruction avaliable, it doesn’t spin freely.
I wouldn’t trust the spinning ring for actual rolls, but the counter looks useful, although too expensive to keep multiples around to hand out for a game.
Yeah, the problem with a lot of Thinkgeek products is that they sound cool, but have terrible build quality. I say this as someone who bought their “Blade Runner” light-up umbrella.
When they make a 3d6 or fudge dice ring I’ll be impressed.
I have some friends who got a better version of this as a d10 for their engagement rings.
What ThinkGeek fails to mention is that these are made by CritSuccess (http://www.critsuccess.com/) who held a successful Kickstarter for the line a few years back. I have a 2r6, a 2r10, and a counter ring. All are great, though they’re sized a little smaller than what I had measured at a jewelry store.`
You can order directly from them (and probably give them a higher percentage of the profit), and check out their full catalog of different rings - they had a D&D alignment ring I think and others that I don’t think ThinkGeek is carrying, as well as two other colors (blue and gold).
I don’t have any problems with my rings spinning freely, unless they’ve gotten dirty or something, and a quick wash in the sink with several spins usually takes care of it. YMMV, I guess.
[edited to add that you can buy from them]
Lucky for you, they do (if you order from the company that actually makes the rings)! (I just posted another comment with the link, but here’s a direct link to the product page with both of those rings: http://www.critsuccess.com/index.php/shop.html?p=2)
According to the CritSuccess company’s FAQ (https://www.critsuccess.com/index.php/faq/), they have a lifetime exchange policy, so long as you pay for the shipping… Dunno if it’s worth your time or energy, but it seems like they’d have no problem sending you a replacement that hopefully spins better!
I see myself becoming quite annoying wearing one of these D20s…
