February 9, 2010: We've Looked, But Didn't Touch. Yet.
We're providing the retailers with point of purchase displays (commonly known as POP) for our new dice games, and we just got images from the printer. We posted them on our Flickr account for all to see. Here's the Zombie Dice POP series, and here's the Cthulhu Dice series.
You will, of course, notice that the packaging filling the POP is actually empty. Don't be alarmed -- when the samples arrive here, they'll be filled with genuine dice, cups, and rules. We expect them any day now.
Yes, by the time you read this we'll likely have the actual samples in our hands, and could have taken photos of those. But that would have taken time away from our playing with the dice, so we'll save those for later. I tell you, those dice cups are addicting -- shake, shake, rattle, rattle. And rolling big ol' twelve-siders across a conference room table? Can't stop!
If we can tear ourselves away from playing with these in the office, we'll be showing them off at the GAMA Trade Show (for retailers) and PAX East (for EVERYBODY) this March. You'll be able to get your own copies right around the same time.

(Postscript from SJ . . . Or you can come see me Thursday night in San Francisco, because through the miracle of FedEx, I expect to have actual samples of both games by then.)
