MARCH 2009 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in MARCH 2009

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

In a further attempt to reduce the size of the

general themes

I created the GAMES menu to remove the direct game (Monopoly .. Trivial Pursuits etc) themes from the General Menu

If you notice ... the link to the new menu .. is plain ... I seem to be having an artists block ... as I am at a loss as to what the header for this theme should look like ... SO I am soliciting ideas ... if you have any ... and I use them .. you will be duly compensated (with dice ... of course)

I have already rejected the idea of using a 'ransom note' type header like I did for
MATERIALS and SHAPES


MTG SPINDOWNS In March ... I managed to purchase one of the remaining 5 ... and recently I purchased another ... leaving 3

If anyone has (even if you are not willing to part with ..) any of these:

BLACK APOCALYPSE
RED ODYSSEY
GREEN TORMENT

Please contact me ...
      as I am not totally convinced that they actually exist


Profitable dice trades occured this month with
