I just acquired two King's Die....well 3 total now. I'm recently getting back into Dragon Diceâ„¢ as I've taken a 10 year break from it =p Are these die rare, popular, or just eh? I ask because I may be trading them, but unsure if it's worth it...etc

I recently made a post, and didn't see it go up, so I'm unsure if maybe I didn't post it.... So apologies if this is repeated

Anyways, after a 10 year break from Dragon Diceâ„¢, I came back. And loving it more now, than I did years ago.
I've been trying to beef up my army, and just get different kinds of dice in general.
Well....recently I went on ebay and acquired 2 King's die for $25. First off, is that good? And secondly, how important/how big of a role has the King's die played in your guy's games? Just wanting some feedback on this die.

currently they are simply 'rare'.

This is the only die that is currently 'out of print' with no plans in motion to bring it back.

The reason for that is three fold: its not that popular, the rules aren't that great, there are more important things to be working on.

that being said... I can see a future where it might be brought back into the game, but I also see a future where it may just drift away...

I don't like the 2nd option as SFR prides itself that after all these years we have never banned or retired or excluded a game component...

I've approved your account and merged the two topics. you won't have the issue again.

now as for costs.... a die is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. everyone has a different opinion for every die.

Lets necro this thread, shall we. I haven't played this game in years, but just found some dice at a goodwill and found three of these King's Dice. Anyway, to the point. I noticed that all of the icons were uniform except one, where the coral elf faces the TSR logo instead of the Amazon like the other two. Is this a known misprint?

That would not be considered a misprint, but a variation. Check my website for all the known variations of the Kings' Die.
