|Arkham Horror | Published 16 December 2009|
The newest unique item you can wield against the dark powers of the Ancient Ones arrives in the form of a set of obsidian black cubes, carved with eldritch symbols. Designed by Q-Workshop, esteemed producers of unique polyhedral gaming dice, this set of custom six-sided dice are cast from exquisitely hand-carved originals.
True to both the spirit of H.P. Lovecraft’s mythos and the mechanics of the Arkham Horror board game the ornate, sculpted faces feature Elder signs on both the 5 and 6 sides, to indicate a successful skill check. Keep an eye out at your local retailer over the coming week, then arm yourself against the horror of the Ancient Ones!
Arkham Horror is a board game of mystery and madness set in Arkham in the 1920's. One to eight players cooperate to investigate the strange happenings about the town, and race to prevent ancient evil from surfacing.
orderd 4 set's hope 20's enough :D
Great, now we can have cursed dice to go with the curses, madness, and injury cards!
I've ordered 3 sets - hopefully that will be enough.
Already ordered two sets through Q-Workshop [drool]
Too bad they're not planned Cursed and Blessed sets.
Hey, still nice to have something a bit more thematic. I'll definitely pick these up.
Very nice, but a little hard to read I think.
A glow in the dark set with the dark inking over luminescent plastic dice would have been nice, and a little easier on the eye contrast wise...
corkysru- no, I don't think they glow. Q-Workshop- who produced the dice make a Call of Cthulhu RPG set of dice that glow in the dark. Unfortunately, they're like $25 for a set and you only get 1 d6 (I think).
These are very nice looking dice and I'll be getting a set (either for Christmas or with Christmas money) soon enough.
As a fan of Lovecraft related stuff, these are pretty appealing and have a nice price!
I really hope they glow in the dark.. but i doubt it because they didn't mention it....
These will go nicely in my special Arkham Horror dice bag... muuhuhuhahahaha.
