NOVEMBER 2007 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in NOVEMBER 2007

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

LOTS of dice this month ...

The biggest event this month was I finally got ahold of those elusive odd sided dice from

      BEAR CUB MACHINE so now I am closer to owning at least one example of every
      die on the
dice shapes page


The next biggest event is DIE # 22000

Q-WORKSHOP concluded their dice design contest that began in September here are the results

       Contrats to Thomas Pasieka of 3d Attack for his winning submission

Seems an entire cottage industry is rising from custom made dice
    Both
JSPASSNTHRU and KINGDOM DICE
    gained their own themes this month with custom dice


DICE OF PARTICULAR NOTE




The Call of Cthulhu dice from Q-WORKSHOP are starting to trickle in
     I really love the glow in the dark ones



Thanks to Wayne Gardner for having these D2's made ... and for trading me one



Q-WORKSHOP also released their two tone Elven II's this month 





Two more lanugage dice (Swedish and American Sign) from KOPLOW were added this month



This TINY d32 with the sharpest edges and no 'MADE in CZECH...'
      was found on ebay this month




Cheryl of JSPASSNTHRU now created enough dice thru CHESSEX
    
to warrent her own dice theme ... her dice may be purchased
     via the JSPASSNTHRU ebay store page



Many thanks to Greg Turkich of

KINGDOM DICE
      << I designed this company logo ... let me know what you think >>

     for these and so many others that his company now has its own
     theme that includes both military and
     SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism
) dice




I finally broke down and bought the DICELAND games from
    JAMES ERNEST GAMES (Cheapass Games) ... including
       Space ... Deep White Sea ... Cyburg ... and Dragons







I finally acquired the d3, d5, d7, d9, d11 and d13 from
    BEAR CUB MACHINE
that I have long been wishing for

Now all I need is the d15 and the soon to be created d17 and d19



Can you believe it ... I actually found some
     ARMORY dice that I hadn't already owned?




Here is an interesting twist on lottery dice








Many thanks again to Pedro Takeo
   my former manager ...
   mentor ...
   and good friend in Brazil
      for the donation of these to the collection




Here is an interesting NEW spinner that I won on eBay








FLAMES OF WAR and GALE FORCE NINE added these this month




Thanks again to Kirk and Kelly Steingreaber of Mulligan Dice Golf for
    pointing out their product for me





Added several divination rune dice from
     the ebay vendor ... My Skyes The Limit





This is an interesting Mobile Suit Gundam Destiny Seed die







These are my homemade copies of the 23 dice submitted for the
    Q-WORKSHOP dice design contest

The first is the contest winner
The next 3 are my favorites in order

NOTE: Just because something is my favorite does not mean
             that it would sell ... or would even be able to be mass
             produced

Again ...  here are the full contestresults
