Wooden Dice Friday, Apr 18 2008 

11 April 2008
Goodness, a lot of product came in this week. Marcus and I were up quite late getting everything labeled, inventoried & displayed. Although these 30mm wooden dice did not come in this week, I liked the play of light from, on & through the glass bowl that contains them. So, that’s the image we get today. 30mm wooden dice in a glass bowl at the East Wind Games shop at Scarborough Renaissance Festival.

Polyhedron Dice Thursday, Mar 13 2008 

10 March 2008
A man who helped shape my pre-teen world & defined my teen-angsty geekdom has recently passed away. Gary Gygax, co-creator (with Dave Arneson) of Dungeons & Dragons died in his home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin on 4 March. The man, while not necessarily visionary, took the mundane and with the help of his friend, Dave Arneson, re-wrote rules to create one of the greatest phenomenons in recent history. The Age of Role-Playing was born in the minds of those two men. While animosity & credit soon got in the way, the contribution of Gary Gygax cannot be overlooked or understated. These, now-ubiquitous polyhedral dice collections, were his brain-child and with this I salute the man, the husband, the father — Gary Gygax.
