DECEMBER 2010 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in DECEMBER 2010

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

The big thing of note (at least for me) that occurred this month is that with the acquistion of the  'Mrs Norris' die the HARRY POTTER DICERS collection (36) is finally finished ... it took nearly 5 years to do this

Fellow collector Frank Apollo divested himself of a good bit of his collecton this month
He is going to focus on collecting a 'niche' of dice .. so he is not quitting the hobby

Over the past few months ... I have been experimenting with dying SHAPEWAYS DICE dice

HERE are the results

This month closes another calendar year of dice collecting

Here are some conclusions that can be made from this years stats

*
SHAPEWAYS DICE was the top producer with 514 new dice
                                  they also could be called the 'rookie of the year' as I discovered them
                                  in February 2010 ... and they went from the bottom to #7 of all time

* 2010 was the most prosperous year to date with 3826 dice added

Here's hoping that 2011 will be even more prolific for dice collectors world wide
