JUNE 2008 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in JUNE 2008

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE


The sun has set on Origins 2008 and according to reports ...

Colonel Louis Zocchi has announced that this is his last year at the helm of GameScience

GameStation.net is in the process of acquiring this fine old flagship of the gaming industry and hope to soon whip it back into battle ready status


-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

Gen Con Indy 2008 is a bit more than a month away ... so prepare yourself for a new dice hat

For those of you who have met / seen me ... I have worn several incarnations of dice hats

This years hat is a salute to Colonel Lou and GameScience ... and will be hard to miss

It is also being constructed so that when not serving duty as a hat ...
          it will be the largest die in the collection

No ... I am not showing any pictures as it is a work in process ... and I want it to be a surprise

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

Hasbro has released a number of new Trivial Pursuits 'Bite Size' editions in the UK and Australia this month

The following editions each have unique dice :

     Disney Pixar Edition
     Music Edition
     Girls Versus Boys Edition (2 unique dice)
     World Football Edition
     Celebrity Edition
     Star Wars Edition
     Genius Edition (the die with this version is shared by several others)

It is some possible these will be released in the US ... I do not believe all of them will ... so pick them up while they are available (ebay / Google shopping)


-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

This years Q-Workshop Dice Design Contest is soon to end new entries .. if you want to submit work to be considered .. you will need to act SOON
