Yes! The Gen Con dice were air shipped in from China. We have a handful of sets left over from Gen Con which will go on the web site in a couple weeks. The second, larger shipment is currently on track to sail later in the year, and we hope it will be available to fans by December.

I would love to hear more official news!!! Like shapes, size, color... Pictures would be awesome.

Believe it or not, but I've had a hard time selling DCC to my regular group since getting the dice is such a hurdle.

I think the two colour choices on the pics from the front page are....

AWESOME!

I wasn't that bothered about getting the impact dice as I have gamescience ones but seeing the pictures and colour schemes...I will definitely be getting some of these. They look cool.

The only thing...and it is a minor one...looking at the kickstarter updates...why don't the dice all share the same font style? I see the d30 numbers look different. I think it would look much better if they matched more...same boldness etc...maybe that's just me though :)

Anyway, hope these get into distribution to the UK and I will buy some.

As someone who has a tube of the new dice, I gotta say that I love them. I love that they are all the same scale as the rest of the dice in my collection, and I love the funky shapes on those that are so funky.

Also, each tube of dice features either Hugh with the white dice, or Shana with the black dice. Well, that sheet of paper in the tube does more than just hold a SKU number and price tag for the dice. On the other side of that paper is a Doug Kovacs drawing of a brand new monster with full DCC stats. Each monster is different.

I purchased Shana's dice, and I got the monster listed on her sheet. Now I need to purchase Hugh's dice to get his monster and the amazing Kovacs art that goes with it.
