Recently I was given the opportunity to check out a new product from Dog Might Games. That product was the truly amazing looking Dragon Tray. Here are my thoughts and opinions on the product. Enjoy!
First off let me explain exactly what the product is and give you some more details about it. To begin with, The Dragon Tray comes in many different designs, not just the dragon design. As a matter of fact, the design I was sent was the Celtic Double design. As you can see in the pictures below. It is designed to act as a rolling surface for your dice when playing RPGs or any other game requiring dice to be rolled. It keeps your dice from going all over the table and getting lost in a very fashionable way. The version I received was made of White Ash wood with brown Dragon Hide lining. I’m not exactly sure what the Dragon Hide is actually but it’s pretty cool looking. The intricate designs and hand craftsmanship reek of high quality. As I said, there are tons of different designs each with their own unique set of dice to compliment whatever you choose. Needless to say, whatever you’re looking for in terms of design and necessity, you’ll be able to find something that will more than work for you.
Now what I’ll do is show you several different angles on this particular dice tray so that you can get a good idea of exactly what to expect with your order. It should be noted however that mine did not come with the corresponding dice, so I used my son’s random set of role playing dice instead.
Here’s a look at the back side of the tray. As you can see there are some rubber bumpers that keep it from sliding around on the table, as well as a sawtooth picture hanger for being able to hang it up on your wall.
As you can tell from all the pictures, the tray is well designed and expertly crafted. The wood is really strong and sturdy. The finish is really nice and smooth. I love how beautiful it is and how nicely designed it is. The craftsmanship is excellent. I’ve seen many other dice trays over the years but nothing else compares to the quality of this one. Rolling dice is easy but normally carries with it quite a loud noise when the dice hit the table. This doesn’t completely silence it but it does make it a lot quieter and gives a nice healthy wooden sound that I rather like. Overall, the materials are outstanding.

No instructions needed, as everything is already assembled and ready to go.
As I mentioned earlier, these are expertly made. The added benefits of the rubber pads on the bottom keep the tray from sliding around on the table and also from scratching up the table if that bothers you. The hanger on the back makes it possible to hang it on the wall as an artistic or conversation piece in your game room. Didn’t think a dice tray could also be a piece of art. I really like how pretty the tray is and how well it works. My 16 year old son took it out to his friend’s house where they were playing a local game of 4th Edition D&D. Everyone was impressed with the look and design and really enjoyed using it. It was a big hit with everyone involved. Not only does it work for RPGs but it also can be used with any type of board game. I think it’ll help my daughter keep her dice from going all over the place when she rolls. That’s an added bonus in my book. Basically if you play board games or RPGs like D&D, Pathfinder, Shadowrun or anything else, you will enjoy having one of these to play with. With the many different designs, there’s sure to be one to fit your mood or game type. It’s really beautiful to look at and does an excellent job. I’m thoroughly impressed with it.

The Dragon Tray is a high quality gaming accessory for RPG and board game players alike. The tray is beautiful and is made of sturdy wood with a gorgeous finish applied to it. I really love the overall look and design of it. Speaking of designs, this is simply one of many different designs that are available to choose from. There’s guaranteed to be a design that fits your game or play style. The tray is not only great to play with, it also makes a pretty neat decoration to hang on your wall. I highly recommend this product, as does my son and all his friends. As a board and RPG gamer, I can tell you that you’ve never seen something this high quality in a dice tray. It’s a great addition to any game night. You’ll be happy to have this and you’ll be the envy of your gaming group. Super well done!
