A couple of year back SunDevil and Christer arranged for the Fumbbl dice designs used in the client to be turned into real life Block dice, selling them via a Kickstarter.

To mark that fact that I joined Fumbbl 10 years ago today I have arranged for a new batch of dice to be made. These are slightly different from the first lot, having circular faces rather than square with rounded corners, more in keeping with the GW block dice. The yellow stars and blue arrows are not an exact match either, but as close as I could manage. The image below shows the old dice (top) alongside the new ones.

The biggest change is that there are now different colours available, white opaque, black pearlescent and red pearlescent.

Image

Price is £12 per set of 3 dice with £5 of that going to the site, payment will only be accepted in UK funds via paypal. Postage will be extra and will depend on where you live. There’s no kickstarter this time, I paid for the dice upfront and painted the yellow and blue bits by hand myself.

If you are interested in buying them then you’d need to be a Fumbbl member (it is free to join and you are not obligated to play games) as orders will be done through the site forum and PM system.

More information is available in this thread.

I believe you are a FUMBBL member, or are you too ashamed to admit it?

Not that I know of... :o

Edit: I went and checked and obviously I once created an account...
Seems like I've been drunk at the time as I never got to grips with the FUMBBL client.

But as you can see, I never played any games on FUMBBL and have been logged in 8 years ago.
I really didn't remember creating an account and I'm gonna get rid of it if I can.

Edit2: Nope, can't remember the password and don't have access to the e-mail from back then.
Oh well, this will stand for all eternity then.

I was under the impression you had an account from a long time ago. Accounts are never deleted on FUMBBL, so if you know your account name, it be used.

That aside as spubbbba pointed out. It's free to join (just you can't have more than 1 account) and supporting FUMBBL is a good cause.

But I don't want to join. I'd like to get rid of the account but I can't.
Anyway, back to topic.

But don't you want the Dice Regash? What's wrong with FUMBBL anyway?

I'll definitely support FUMBBL it's a great site and what allowed me to get back into gaming all them years ago, albeit with multiple accounts but that's a long story which I guess nobody would be interested in hearing :orc:

Since the dice originate from Fumbbl (designed by WhatBall) then that is obviously the main place I have been advertising. £12 with P&P on top is a lot for 3 plastic cubes so I assumed that would be the best place to find people interested. I'm using the Fumbbl forum and PM system to track orders and contact people about payments that is the only reason someone would need an account. e-bay or some sort of crowdfunder would have been other options too.

There is no Fumbbl purity test to buy them, I'm treating everyone equally be they veterans with 1000's of games, people I've met in real life and like a lot or someone who just signed up yesterday.

In any case the order thread is up now until 19:00 Uk time on Thurs 4th Aug. Looks like some styles are already spoken for, but not everything is gone yet.

So Spubbbba asked in the other thread for groups of the fabled FUMBBL dice collector's to unite in union and save on some postage (and Spubbbba's time) getting dice sent to one place.

I noticed there are a few of us attending Exiles Pieces O Eight in September (still 4 places free BTW) on the list for the dice and perhaps more going not on the list who arranged dice via PM.
So thought why not get them all there. Either post them to one person, or if someone is close enough to Spubbbba, collect them and bring them down to Exiles.

I'd be up for that. Anyone else want to try sort this out? If Spubbbba lives where I think he dose I could even collect them, unless someone else lives closer hint hint :wink: :wink:

As you have opened the conversation, I have already contacted Spubba and asked if I can collect in person next week (as I'm in Bristol) and take anyone's who is going to Thrudball so we would have them for Saturday.

I'm waiting to hear back if that will work with his timeframes and stuff. I'll let you know when I hear back.
