So would someone like to explain how the GENCON 50 dice sets basically sold out the first day? This is inexcusable.
I had a feeling this would happen. I'm guessing there just wasn't enough cash flow to pay for the vast amount they could have sold. What they should have done was take orders and cash and send them AFTER the convention.
Koplow Games had a very nice commemorative d6 that was on sale with one of the coupons in the Con coupon book. It's my favorite souvenir from the Con actually. My only peeve is that like so many commemorative dice, they put their "Gen Con 50" logo on the side corresponding to the "1" side of the die - which means that instead of feeling great about rolling "Gen Con 50", you feel crummy because you rolled a "1". Come on, people! You want us to associate Gen Con 50 with something positive!
I was not aware that there even WERE GENCON 50 dice sets. Might have liked to get one.
So which crystal caste die did everyone get? My brothers was just marked with gencon 50. Mine was marked on two sides, one with crystal caste and one with gencon50- going to make using it a bit of a problem:which is 1 and which is 6 :-). Saw a picture of someone else's that had both logo's but still had the 1 pip on the die.
I have (2) of the Crystal Caste, don't start yelling my friend gave me hers. One just says GenCon50 the other has both faces.
The Koplow dice are FRAKING BEAUTIFUL! I use the coupon for one and bought the 2nd.
Others are asking how they ran out? I think two reasons
If your Crystal caste die has crystal caste on one side you should see a pip in center of the crystal caste side indicating that to be the "1" side. Apparently this year was also crystal caste's 25th anniversary.
As popular as the dice are, please, use a line system to prevent the throng of pushing, shuffling, and cutting.
Love the product eenough.
I stood in line on Thursday and bought mine -- I remember not being able to get them last year.
This year's set was, essentially, black and white. :)
