WEBSITE of ARJAN VERWEIJ

I am actively collecting dice since I got several special dice around 1990.
On this site you can see more than 1800 pictures of a few thousand dice from my huge collection:
dice from different countries, dice with 2-100 faces, dice from different materials, promotional dice,
dice spinners (teetotums), dice with various types of markings, and dice as old as 2000 years!!!!

If you have no time to browse through the 250 sub-pages, then at least consider to have a look at:
Ancient ivory/bone 'stick' dice
Dice from China
Dice from Nepal
Dice from Peru
Gambling tops with pips
Crown&Anchor dice
Promo poker dice

This site is best watched with a screen resolution larger than 1200.
