Just as a heads up Crystal Caste has posted up the convention dice sets for 2020 origins and gencon on their website. They have the options for full sets in the tins or just the D6. I hadnt seen it mentioned here yet but I remembered there were a fair few of us waiting for them to go live for purchase.

Crystal Caste has their site up and available to take orders. Gen Con 2020 dice are $2 each, commemorative tin sets, $15. Shipping is steep at $10 per order. Our group pooled our orders to make it economical as it is a flat shipping price. Here is a link.

I used to love getting the six sided GENCON dice every year when sides 1-5 were normal and 6 was replaced with GENCON and the year. They became a lot less useful to me once they also replaced the one with their logo. It made it a lot harder to figure out if you rolled a one or 6.

You'd think on one of those sides they could have found a way to still have the single dot for the one.

Thanks for posting the link! Got my order in, and now my die run can continue.

The change prevents the die from being useful. I prefer dice that have the symbol instead of the 6 pips/side to keep them all consistent which limits other free dice except for those from Flying Buffalo if they still give them out.

Edwin, I agree, the change keeps them from being useful dice (to me at least) and they're now just keepsakes.

For those interested Norse Foundry is also doing Gen Con dice and their dice are actually usable.

Not too bad pricing for aluminum dice.

GateKeeper will also have their version of Gen Con logo'd dice on sale next week.
We're all the kind of people who enjoy the game on a "meta" level. We like talking about the game year-round. We buy tokens. We enjoy crafting. We get together during the off-season if we can. We are a very skewed demographic that way. -Raven

As an FYI, I just got this email from Crystal Caste:

Hello,

This is Michael, the owner of Crystal Caste. Some time ago I mentioned to you that we were rebuilding our website in preparation of the upcoming trade show season. We believe we have worked the bugs out and are ready to handle the increased demand. With Gen Con coming up we expect that we will be swamped with sales. Don’t get me wrong, we’re not complaining. 😉 I only mention this because this gives you a few days to get your orders placed in advance of the expected rush. It is possible that you have done this already as the site has been running for a while now as we correct errors when we find them. I think we have caught all of them now and so I feel comfortable in reaching out to let you know.

We have several special discounts on the site to help you get the dice that you need during this difficult time. If possible please let your friends know that www.crystalcaste.com is up and running. I hope you like the new look.

As I said in our original email, thanks again for your continued support and we look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
Michael
