Yet another custom order from our 4dF fanatic, this time, quite an awesome unconventional idea ^^ Those, are two 9 sided dice, wich also work as fudge dice. The face ordering is as follows: 1       (blank) 3       | 8       + + 6       (blank) […]

Bipyramid D6

Some time ago, I showed a test prototype of this same die. Today, I give you the completed one. I agree that the die might benefit from bigger numbers, since there is plenty of area to do so. Unfortunately, numeric punches are not cheap, and a good set could have been easily, the cost of […]

Watchmen Dice: Comedian.

03/04/2010

Many have classified the Comedian as the only character in the Watchmen universe who is almost totally unlikeable. He is unrepentingly evil and for the most part he gets away with it. Since he is the first one to die on the graphic novel, he will be the first one to have a die. Also […]

With a super record of 500+ visits this week, it’s a little discouraging that only 9 people have voted this week. Some friends of mine, have complained they thought that it was an advertisement, so they did ignore the colorful “thing” at the side of the blog. I will adopt these new measures to ensure […]
