In this article, I wan to show you the difference between the original prototype dice that consisted of a Lego dice with sticker images, and the new custom dice I just received from Gamestation.Net.
For the prototype, I took a Lego dice (that is only sold with Lego board games) with its many fun and colorful interchangeable face plates; and added cut-out images made from a shipping label. This dice was fun to use and I'm sure will come in handy when making another game, but I wanted a more professional looking dice to be sent with the board game when I enter it for submission @ KublaCon 2011.
I drew the images (posted a while back) and had my friend Gil edit, crop and add borders. I am also glad Jason Witten over @ Gamestaion.Net (www.customdice.com) recommended the 25mm d6 because the images look amazing on this giant dice!
Here are more pics of the prototype and custom dice side by side:
P.S. HOPE YOUR HAVING A GREAT BIRTHDAY GIL! :-D
