AUGUST 2010 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in AUGUST 2010

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

Gen Con Indy was truly productive ...
    * Q-Workshop ... had a truly amazing number of new dice
    * Chessex had its usual fare of Menagerie dice
    * Wizards of the coast released From the Vault: Relics
    * Tomas the Lapidary ... had some amazing hand carved stone dice

Unfortunately this was the first year in likely 40 or so ... that Lou Zocchi did not attend
     No .. his health is not failing ... He just decided to take a break this year

Due to the hyper-productivity of Shapeways artists this month ... 9 new DICE SHAPES were added this month

even though they were a very
limited release
