HIGHLIGHED DICE FOR AUGUST 2014
AUGUST 2014 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in AUGUST 2014

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

The planets must have been in conjunction this month ...
    or somewhere there was a 'perfect storm' and the opposite effect was felt

    August 2014 was the best month to date (+1440) ... it surpasses August 2006 (+1142)

August has traditionally been the best month for collecting ...
    for the most part due to Gen Con Indy

August (8257 dice) is now almost double the count of the nearest next month ...
     July at 4599 dice
     
The inflow of dice made the addition of the 50000th die almost a non-event

I did not give MDG a fair chance at Gen Con as I pointed out that their metal dice
were using the same mold that was funded by the 

foam brain gamesKickstarter for which I was an investor
Now that I have had time to think about it ... it really was not their fault ...
unless they purchased the Chinese made dice knowing
that the mold was funded and made for FBG

These dice are very nice ..
They have the same look and hand feel as some of the older
