Will FF sell Dices in the future? I would especially like to see Arkham Customized Dices on the catalog

Custom dice would be great. While not necessary, they would add a lot to Arkham Horror, which is already dripping with theme. I would buy some. Maybe they could be packaged with a base game plastic investigators pack? That would be neat.

BTW

Die = Singular

Dice = Plural

Dices != a word.

But dices sounds so cool - like when you use "peoples"!

Anyway, tossing my vote in for an Arkham Horror themed dice set.  maybe another vote for upgraded BattleLore dice.

 Gets my vote too. Though if I would need to choose between the dices and plastic investigators I would pick the investigators any day.

I would love Doom Dice. Mine don't have any ink on them any more :P.

Would be nice to have some of those in Descent quality.

Wow. According to that forum (sorry, I'm not sure how to insert double quotes on this forum...) :

[...] The "near future" mentioned before (way way before) refered to our talks with Fantast Flight Games about creating special Cthulu d6 dice for Arkham Horror boardgame.. and we are still talking and working on the project. We hoped to have signed a license agreement for those during Essen, but we still are talking over the details of the project of the dice for them..."

I want that. Those dices look incredible.

Customized dice are always nice, it definately adds flavour. :)

 

 

p.s. 'die' is single, 'dice' is plural, and 'dices' are something probably doing with cooking. =)

"Dices" works better as a verb than it does as a noun. I agree, jgbaxter, it does have something to do with cooking ( as in, "it slices, it dices, it does julien fries!" ) hmmm... I suppose you could make the arguement that when one "dices," they are adding there own flavour!

 

Yes... I am a sick, sick, twisted individual, and I am truly sorry that I have subjected you to my corn-ball humour.

Avoiding the topic of how to best communicate the idea of multiple polyhedral numbered plastic blobs;

Some WFRP themed dice would be nice.

One idea that has been much mooted was the ide of a d12 with the Hit Locations marked upon it.

I'll add my voice to the call for custom dice.

Some lovely Gothic Imperial dice for Dark Heresy would be great.

Also some hit location dice would be fun.

And perhaps some economically priced 'casino dice (d6)' (sharp squared edges, no dimples, transparent).  The rounded-edged, dimpled dice that seems to have become the 'standard' for d6, have twice the probability of rolling a '1' than a 'casino-style' die...

I'd like to see some Oathkeeper and Oblivion die for Kingdom Hearts. I'm sure I can find ways to put them to use.

I second the call for sharp-edged, flat numbered 'casino' dice.

But for all types, not just d6s

Another vote for nice die. Would get them in a heartbeat, especially for Dark Heresy, Arkham Horror and Tide Of Iron. They would add some nice presentation to the game that would complement the game and theme well.
