No dice?

an alternate history pulpy retro-sci-fi space opera planetary romance. It's throttled up rocket packs burning radium on the long blast to the farthest reaches of the Solar System. It's hunting thunder lizards in the upland jungles of Venus. It's battling Ancient Martian killing machines piloted by the Deutsche Marserkorps across the baking red deserts of Mars.

I know, right?

I kinda like the DW dice for that though...

Actually a while back I remember seeing some rocket shaped dice on Kickstarter, but I'm pretty certain it was a bust.

Maybe Cubicle 7 could do something similar.

The polyhedral versions were a bust but they did somewhat successfully make rocket shaped d6s. That being said, the reviews are horrible so it might all be bust depending on your view point. Regardless here's a link so you can see for yourselves.

Thought they'd be to good to be true...

Anyway, pretty certain there'd be plenty of people who'd be up for some Retro Sci-Fi dice.

Hello!

I'll be completely honest - there's a pretty easy to draw graph that shows how many dice we can sell based on how many core books of a given game we've sold. And the set up costs for dice are pretty heavy duty, so we need to be careful when deciding which lines get custom dice.

Rocket Age has done very well for us as a non-licensed game. But it isn't quite in the place where it can support it's own line of dice. Which is a shame but there it is.

Well I guess I'll have to drag more people into Rocket Age games then.

...though disappointed, I really appreciate the honesty. Class act from C7 all around. Thank you, Jon.

As an alternative, I've been mulling getting a few metal (chrome/copper) dice for RA. They're a bit pricey but, I think, have the right feel.
