I would buy multiple sets as well.  We used two sets when we played (2 copies of the game), and peole were still scrambling for the dice.  I am not sure why they don't take the RPG approach and market the heck out of these things:

- sparkly dice

- gothic looking symbols for the Overlord set of dice

- swirly dice (everyone likes swirly, right?)

- etc., etc.

 Created an account just to respond to this thread. Got my copy finally this week and the first thing I thought upon unboxing and reading the rules was would be nice to have extra dice. Would ideally have a set for each player. So would buy four sets.

 Minimum of 2 more sets. From there as many as needed to keep game flow going. "Who has the blue die? OL, can I use yours?"

While you are waiting, just do what we do. They are all six siders. Created a simple chart in word with the numbers matching sides. Roll some normal six siders and compare to the chart. Easy peasey.

 I would definitely pick up 2-3 sets.  I have players who tend to "lose" their dice in all their table clutter and waiting for them to gather them up can be irritating.

 I would buy a set of extra dice, and depending on the price possibly more than one set.

Have played 1st edition for the first time the other day, the main comment was "I wish there was an extra set of dice". I immediately went out and bought 2 sets. It's a shame they aren't compatible with 2nd edition.

So, from experience, YES I would definitely buy at least one (probably 2) sets of dice.

I had the chance to play an evening of 2nd Edition on Friday, and can confirm that I would without doubt purchase a second set of dice.

I'd buy 1 set. Mainly for the extra blue die. 1 blue die is not enough for this game. It's a pain to pass that main attack die all around the table. With 2 blue dice, 1 can be for the OL at all times and 1 can be passed between the 4 heroes.

 I would buy 1-2 sets, I believe.

Love this game.  Have played a few of the campaign encounters and would absolutely buy at least two extra sets of dice.

I made account here only to come tell that I too would definitely buy 2 to 4 extra sets, having extras really make things move more smoothly. Currently it's kinda "pain" to keep track of the dices. Nothing else to complain about whole game.

And that alone says quite a bit about the quality of this game :) <3

I would love a second set just so I wouldn't have to roll the one brown die twice when using armor of faith and having leather armor on my Disciple. It gets even more confusing when you use Shield of the Dark God to re-roll all your defense dice as well.

Yes, I  too, would purchase an additional dice set.  Two players definitely need a set each.  Then there's no excuse for not having the dice you need right in front of you.  Three players also require at least two complete dice sets.  That's worked out really great for our group with Descent & RtL.  However, a set each may result in too many dice on the table, where eventually the extras will make their way onto the floor, or worse, into my beer (don't ask!).  Four or five players, I haven't yet had the pleasure.  Even then, I can't imagine anything less than three sets.

Expansion looks great! But, man, I could really use a couple more sets of dice. I know ROI is exponentially better for FFG with an xpac, but I'm dyin' here.

 I ordered blank indented dice - they also give a template to create stickers.

Here is an example of a site that sells some very cheap : javascript:void(0);/*1345751073331*/

I created a template (pdf) for a double set of D2 dice. You can d/l it here (BGG will eventually place the file in its file section) : javascript:void(0);/*1345751176910*/

 The template file has been approved by BGG.

You now can find it here : javascript:void(0);/*1345996977981*/
