OCTOBER 2011 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in OCTOBER 2011

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

I will remember October 2011 not only because

J & S CUSTOM LASER ENGRAVING   used some of my dice designs to make dice

* or it was a big month for the number of dice (+351) ... October is not usually a big volume month

* or a D144 was first added to the collection

* or a full set of
wassergal spielevertagWassertal Spieleverlag Rail Road Dice was finally added

* or that it was a big
yahtzee dice month and Usaoploy was not involved

* I will remember this month because this is the month that the feature was added
which corrected several database mistakes as well as caused several overlooked BRAND themes to be created

         << Many thanks to
Matthew Cornelisse(MCTrivia) for doing most of the work for this >>

I would like to thank Daniel Martinez
and Tom Anders of IMPACT MINIATURES

Daniel designed and made these 'Passing Shot' dice ..
