MARCH 2008 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in MARCH 2008

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

The biggest event that happened to the gaming world this month ... was the loss of Gary Gygax

I met him only once ... and that was last year at Gen Con ... he will be missed

As to dice events of note ...

  * I crossed the 23000 dice mark with a
KING ZOMBIE d6

  * I  finally finished entering all the reciepts for the dice into a spreadsheet
         and the results by year are posted
here

  * I revamped the website a bit ... changing to alternating oval and rectangular mouse over buttons
