I used something similar when I hosted TPIR for a convention in Toronto.  We played Dice Game and I was lucky enough to find a matching set of four dice on eBay.

This will get you eight 3-inch foam rubber dice, four black, four white:

Note, though, that if you're actually interested in playing the lawn dice game, the hoops included are two pieces of tubing that are much flimsier than what's pictured. A pair of hula hoops would do the trick, though.

Same site has these 3.5" wooden dice.  You get 6 for $29.95.

Oriental Trading has a set of lawn dice that look an awful lot like 70's High Rollers dice:

Interesting that they have the larger (but not red, thankfully) Chinese one-pip but not the Chinese two. 2 3/4" is going to be a little small (mine are 3 1/4") but not unusably so. Those are a really good option!

These are a good buy for any US folks - $23 USD plus shipping with today's exchange rate nets you 6 nice dice

Problem is that they won't tell you what the shipping is gonna cost you until after the fact, which is a large blocking issue for a lot of people. (It does look like they have a form to have them send you a quote, but ugh, what a pain.)

Damn shame, too, because those are nice.

EDIT: Amazon's got them for $35, Prime-friendly.

From my experience, these are great for any oversized-game-show-dice needs:

I decided to go with these to pair with Zapp Zerapp to have things for kids to play when they come to my game group.

Yeah, I noticed that too unfortunately.  On the plus side they sent me a $5 CAD coupon code for registering on their website.  I think I'll roll the dice and let everyone know how things land.

Try flaghouse.com instead of flaghouse.ca; they will still send you a $5 discount too!

Found lawn dice at Target, which at this point doesn't surprise me. Only had five in the pack, though.

My local game store had some good-looking dice that were painted and even had the corners rounded. There were also giant playing cards and multiple sealed copies of the High Rollers board game.

I know there are some Chicagoans on this board, so for anyone near the Bolingbrook/Woodridge area, the Goodwill on Boughton east of I-355 has a Tyco Jeopardy for $2.99, an Endless Games Card Sharks for $1.99, and an AYSTA5G box game for $1.99. I picked up a Millionaire 1st-edition box game for 99˘.

Sucks that I moved to the Bay Area a year ago; but since my wife is there this weekend…

During Friday's airing of a new Family Feud episode, a brief, five second, promotion came up for a new Family Feud "Platinum Edition" box game.  It appeared to be another product from Cardinal Industries.

Although the announcer mentioned "In stores now," I haven't seen it anywhere, yet.

Recently, Endless Games updated their website, but there has been no updates to show their Family Feud Sixth Edition game (yet at least).
