MAY 2008 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in MAY 2008

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

Not much news this month other than a 'boat load' of new themes due to my discovering
     of several new dice companies


For some reason Armorcast has decided to make a mini of ME!?! for sale at conventions
   
HERE an artists rendtion from which the sculptor will carve the original

     When asked for a style ... I chose Steam Punk as I was so impressed by their
          Steam Buddha and Metal Easter Island Heads

I need help in two areas:

1) Can anyone ID the logo on THIS beer die? ...

    It was thought to be TsingTao ... but I cant find a logo on the web to match it
         Please cite URL's if possible

     IDENTIFIED: Many thanks to Erystelle of Dragonsfoot for showing that this is
                                    a San Miguel Beer die                            

2) If anyone has or knows how to ahold of any of the original Dragon DIce (no not the collectable dice game)

     Please contact me ...

     I see these on ebay every so often ... but it seems there is a collector out there that
           really wants nearly ALL of them


Oh ... and the GENCON 2008 Dice Map is posted
