So, if it could be done (if the boxes aren't made yet),

Too late.


I will look on the bright side... too late means the boxes are already made... which increases the chances that these new kickers will be ready in time for GenCon!

They did put a dice picture on the box... the cannibal is on the reverse side. Razz

That's fine. I think the dice on the kickers (like Firewalkers) or the two-player starters looks really lame. It's like they tried to make it look like dice hurling out of the box, but it looks really cheesy.

I don't mind seeing a picture of a die, like "See? This is what one of the dice might look like. Just this little picture up here in the corner." Having them splashed across the artwork or scattered haphazardly around is ugly, in my opinion.

I think the reason they did the dice splash initially was to show the different shapes of the dice, and the new colors.


I've seen an ad where they actually added flames to each die,
in an attempt to make them look like they are flying out of the page.

When you design things,
you do sometimes go too far,
but that's how you get new ideas...
in the final, the BOD's decide what they like, and what they want to see.

BTW - the 'second thing' I meant to point out was that there will be a rules sheet in the box. something that we haven't done for several years to cut down costs. However we have enough new players and gamestores and distributors who buy the dice w/o ever visiting the website that we decided it was needed this time.

Definately! Especially this last 12-18 months. We aren't all getting cars as bonuses or anything, but as a percentage we are seeing more sales from more channels and while we have lots of growth potential, there is a measurable change.

Personally, I think the largest contributor is attending the local conventions. That way people see the game being played and we can share the story of our company with them.

Cliff one of my favorite things is telling folks how SFR.inc saved Dragon Diceâ„¢. Many people i talk to say "Gamer Cred" or something along those lines. It also makes them want to play the game a bit more. Hopefully having a vid of how to play will give it some boost too. Btw i still have that Die up for trade if your up for it Smile
