From TM to R (and beyond)
Today is my 36th birthday and the USPTO made me a beautiful present:
Dice Age is now ® and not TM anymore. We won.
This foxy-dodgy episode ended this morning for sure and I listened to you and we held the ground.
This was the first battle that turned the tide of the war.

MAXWELL'S REWARD. Cheap functional art. For a mere $7 pledge you are pre-ordering and will receive two different Dice Age dice. Let's be honest, you don't play many games yourself, but you want to support this game because you think it's a great idea and would love to see these beautiful mini sculptures exist in the world. (Or maybe you're just a collector of fine art under one inch in height.) Your pledge will put us that much closer to making this game a reality, and you'll be rewarded with receiving two different dice chosen at random. You can keep one and gift one to a friend! Or maybe you can create your own dice mini-game that uses your two unique dice. Let me know what you create and I may add it to the growing list of games used with the Dice Age dice. Includes shipping within the USA. (Shipping to Canada add $5, International add $10 to pledge amount.)

ADOPT A DIE OPERATION. For those who really care! For a $150 pledge, you will receive one full Alpha collection of the 23 different dice, and become the godfather of a new die. Every die has the right to just be. For the 23 Dice Age dice that are released now, a hundred of others are still waiting in the laboratory to be reshaped and heralded to the Alpha master level. By adopting a die, you choose a die-to-be that will be redesigned. You will receive a polyurethane unique unpainted casting of the master: what we use to confirm the master before it is carved into the steel mold. Furthermore, when the master appears in the next Dice Age Compendium rulebook issue, your name will be marked as the godfather of this die. Contact us for choosing the die you want to adopt.

DIPLOMATIC POUCH. For a $500 pledge, you will receive: - One draft PROXY ultra-limited set of the first 16 different dice, - Eight sets of the alpha edition, in deluxe leather pouches: a huge 184 Alpha dice. - A lifetime scoop shipping of one copy of each adopted die PU prototype (see adopt-a-die operation, There are three as of today, may the 30th 2011). - Tournament Expert level promotion and Official Dice Age referee's Orange necktie. With this unbeatable lot, shipped for free anywhere in the US (shipping to Canada add $15, International add $25 to pledge amount), you become an Ambassador of the game. You have all it takes to discover the game, have others discover it, and even make discoveries as a part of the Research and Development. You will be, for years to come, one of the pillars of the growing player's community and specialist of the game with first access to its developments. The PROXY set is handmade and hand painted for you by the designer (yours truly). This is a piece of art and it comes with a signed serialized certificate. Those sets are cast in the silicone mold, therefore there can be only a very limited series. After all, this project sounds the death knell and will end the limited era of the handmade sets. They are closer to the art that inspired this game. The crazy diplomatic pack of eight full Alpha collections of the 23 different Alpha edition dice, including deluxe leather pouches, is for you to have others around you discover the dice. You can hoard them up, make gifts, give dice away one by one as a unique souvenir or reward, as you will have anything it takes to organize your own tournaments: You will also receive the tournament organization kit and the official Dice Age referee's necktie, used at every Dice Age tournament since 1997: - http://jeuxsoc.fr/article/bes_2002/gellule.jpg - http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150100677194039&set=t.747449038&type=1&theater. Each time a Dice Age die is adopted, you will receive a scoop copy (physical die) of the prototype. Now and forever. Furthermore, you will really help the game in its history and we thank you for pushing forward new game concepts like this one!
