Dice boxes are easy for Geralt to obtain in Chapter I:
- Carried by the racists harassing Zoltan in the fishing village. As the boxes are considered quest items, the racists' corpses will not de-spawn until the boxes are looted.
- On the corpse in the Outskirts crypt, next to the Circle of Inner Fire.
If Geralt does not obtain any dice boxes in Chapter I, he will still unavoidably be given some by the elven convict at the beginning of Chapter II.
