JANUARY 2008 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in JANUARY 2008

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

   The website underwent a facelift over the holidays ...
        new base page ...
        new buttons ...
        new color scheme to match the forums (see below) ...

   DiceCollector.com has also moved from its old webhost to GoDaddy.com
     I chose this webhost due to the great experience I have had with my girlfriends site
     which I also design and maintain

   Yes ... I have heard some complaints about GoDaddy ... But I have not experienced ANY

   The reason I moved was that I am now hosting collections from other collectors
      and did not feel it is right to use BMEZine.COM's webspace that was so graciously donated for
      years ... to host info that was not mine - Thanks for all the great time Shannon and Jonathon

    Along with the host move ... I discovered that GoDaddy offers free forum software

        As such ... I just had to create the Dice Collector Forums ...
                << if for no other reason that to learn how to setup and maintain a board >>

Feel free to come and join

   Several people have been discussing the D1 / D<infinity> ... so I decided to go ahead and design
         and have one made (see below)

   There is a new 'Worlds Smallest Die'

   Koplow released a new catalog (16 part 2) with a large number of new release dice


DICE OF PARTICULAR NOTE

   This is the real thing ... although I dont count this towards the
        actual count for the collection ... as it isnt really a die

   This is a trick (weighted) cue ball from
        CueSight and engraved by
CHESSEX


Dice : NON NUMBERED OPAQUE ROUNDED SOLID SCENARIODICE DOT COM 01 CHORE DICE    This set is from a new company called Scenario Dice
       I hope to add their entire line soon
          so that I can have a dice theme for them


   This is a neat spinner die that I traded for with a fellow collector
        in Singapore


   This is a another die from the above trade ... it isnt remarkable ...
         but I discovered that 'charging' a glow in the dark die ... with
         a black light ... is much more effective


   Another trade die ... can anyone identify this symbol?




   HEY HOO HOW dice from ... guess where?


   Any idea what this die is?


   Added this neat die sculpture from France


   Another (and different) billet die from David Blackburn


   Many thanks to Alexander and Keng Ho for helping me with the
        translation of the dice packaging so that I could create the
       
DAISO dice brand theme





   Thank you to the nice lady at SMIFFY'S for supplying these and
         I have created a new dice brand theme in return


    These dice from a company called Unicorn ... seem to have been
        produced for BOAC


   This is an oriental hockey team (who knew?) die for the One on One
         hockey game





  These are the coffee cup and shot glass that accompanied last months
         christmas gift mouse pad
