Mix up the nostalgia with 80s-inspired dice sets from Rad


Ah, the heady days of the 1980s before there was on-demand and DVR, when you recorded (and re-recorded) your favorite TV shows as they aired. Relive that era with every roll of the dice with beautiful new 1985 Games sets inspired by classic VHS tapes! The crowdfunding campaign is now underway and you don’t want to miss your chance to add these retro beauties to your dice collection.

Not an 80s kid you say? Its good. These dice sets are simply magnificent. Nostalgia is a bonus for us elders.

1985 Games

The sharp-edged resin dice feature color combinations inspired by VHS tape packaging. Choose from five dice sets with seven polyhedral dice each, available in a rainbow of hues. 1985 Games pours, polishes and hand paints each die, they write in the campaign description.

What do VHS tapes and Dungeons & Dragons have to do with each other, you might ask? It could be that wonky episodes of the D&D cartoon are often recorded with handwritten labels stuck on dusty tapes. 1985 Games reveals the real reason these sparkly sets are 1980s themed: “It’s just the box they come in.”

We’re cool with that too. You’ll be the envy of adventurers when you set this box down on the gaming table.
