Whamodyne suggests everyone should have a pair… of big brass dice.

With Father’s day coming up, I wanted to do something a little different. Now, dad plays a lot of board games and occasionally I’ve seen him have to squint a bit to see how the dice wound up.

I used to work in a gaming store (board, not video) and saw a lot of dice styles cross the counter. One of them was the long polygon style from Crystal Caste. I liked the basic idea and its stuck in the back of my mind ever since I first saw them.

Now that I thought of doing something for Dad, the two things, easy to read dice and the “rolling log” style from Crystal Caste clicked and I was off to the races. The fact that I could make up a little box and label it “Big Brass Ones – One Pair” when giving it to him was too good to pass up.
