OCTOBER 2006 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in OCTOBER 2006

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

Not much this month

The Collectors Guide to Casino Dice (Small Town Edition) from Andy Johnson and Rick Olsen came out this month

Ripley's Believe it or Not has decided that I am wierd enough to grace the pages of their latest book ... released this month (not a far stretch for those who know me personally)

GALE FORCE NINE rereleased several of the Battletech / MechWarrior faction dice this month ... these are updated versions of the old Armory dice shown HERE and  HERE


DICE OF PARTICULAR NOTE

 These are some nifty handmade Bronze Dice acquired this month
  Finally got my hands on 2 sets of these expensive (and somewhat rare)
     Social Distortion dice
 These wooden d8's were a real find ... Anyone fluent in French? ... These
  are possibly the oldest d8's ever production made ... rivaling the
  1881 Celluloid Poker Dice
  These are oversized bowling dice from Australia
