I am trying to find where / from whom this was initiated ... I get the impression that it is a US 'day' ... if it is officially recognized ... I would think it would be in the Congressional Record somewhere ... I searched back to 1994 and did not find anything

Mr. Cook, you are a wonderful madman! :up: I just wanted to say that.


Also, we would like to order 12 special, six-sided bad boys, with "StrolenCon 07'" in small print on one of the six faces of the cube.

Is that doable? How much? Say if we wanted them made out of, ummm, anyone have any ideas?

Very doable ... Just 12? ... Chessex is the way to go ... They charge about $1 a die for a standard 5/8 in ... Would you mind making and extra pair ... so I can add them to the collection and the Gaming Industy dice theme?

30 of those look good to me.

And by the look of Kevin's collection they can get really detailed with it.

I will get in contact with them with a few graphic ideas and see what they can do!

Yes, Kevin, we can hook you up. :)

It depends on the series ... I have most of them now (89 of 105) ...

I typically pay about $5 a die
