I know that this is in the wrong spot, but can someone tell me if its possible to get the black block dice on the front page. I think they are awesome.

As in the real items?

With prototyping it should be possible to create any kind of die these days.

Maybe fummbl could do a run and create these dice and get a small revenue on it for running the site.

Chessex are doing custom dice

So, if 100 dice were ordered, they would be 3.60 each. Am I reading that pricing structure correctly?

I have had custom normal and block dice made from a UK venue and it is relatively simple, especially once you have the designs.

When I got the Star Bowl block dice made they cost 1.80 each but that was for 201, the more you order the cheaper they get per die.

I think you would need to contact a company such as Chessex as the dice on the front page have several different colours so would be trickier as the standard ones are just a single colour. In particular the both down and defender stumbles have 2 colours on a single face which could cost more.

Funny enough, I had someone else asking about getting these dice done as well. If there is enough interest, the price is reasonable, and I can ensure getting the investment capitol back, I would happy to clean up the artwork to get the dice done and give all the proceeds to Christer/Kalimar as they see fit. I sent an email to them about this a week or so ago, and am awaiting an answer to see if it is ok, as I did the dice for them and consider it their property to allow or not allow to be made into real dice.

I think a run of 300 dice (3 to a set, 100 sets) is reasonable. What would be the cost for those that have experience with this? I would do all the art in single colour, white on black.

I would love to see some 'real' FUMBBL dice.

well the NAF gives you a set of Block dice with there $10US annual membership. However i was just reading that they dont sell them individually, due to limited numbers. i for one would purchase 1 set of dice and be happy to pay $10US and let the proceeds go to the website. However a limited number of 100 sets honestly may not be enough. I can think of 6 guys here in AUS that would buy them straight away.

Full credit to WhatBall for the design of those dice mate they are awesome.

I don't think the site would be allowed to commission them. I think someone would have to do it as an individual and then, if they wished, donate the proceeds to the site.

Put me down for a set Smile

I'd love a set as well, but the whole topic reminds me that my fumbbl t-shirt is looking a bit the worse for wear and it'd be fantastic if there was a chance to get a new one

+1

Thou I thought it was Angie that fixed that one and she's kinda not around at least not under that name. But I guess it could be done any how.

I actually dont wear mine so much any more as to not wear out the last. need it for special occasions.
