Mistborn Dice Set
« on: August 07, 2012, 06:55:13 PM »
Will there be any way for us folks unlucky enough to attend Gen Con (my oldest starts Kindergarten that week, so no way am I getting out of the house!) to pick up a set of the Mistborn Premium Dice Set or Mistborn Elite Dice Set, or even the 11th metal promo die???

I would LOVE to have a full set of these!

I'd guess you could use a ninja-shopper.

Jeff, we're looking at doing some limited online sales, but our sales system's being a bit of a punk right now. Even if/when we get it up, those Premium Sets will be *very* limited. The 11th metal die and/or the Elite set will not be offered for any online sales, as they're limited enough in supply we can only keep them for cons (we're virtually certain to need all of them for the show - if we don't, well, we may put them up for sale online afterwards; we'll see).

Dave's suggestion of a ninja shopper is a good one if you want all the fancy stuff; best way to be sure :)

Well it looks like my Saturday 1-day pass was a good one day to be there for the signing and the drawing... now I just have to hope some of the dice survive that long.

Yeah... those dice look great, and my heart totally fell a bit when I read they'd only be available at the con. :(

If you want everything you'd best ping someone going to the show, but if you're happy to live with the base set you should be fine. We just need to work out the kinks with getting that product into the online store.

Alex, when I told you how cool these dice were, I didn't expect to get frozen out of buying them...  ::grin:: Sounds like a job for Kickstarter!

Is the only difference between the premium and the elite sets the dice bag?  The bag's cool and all, but I'm not sure it's $13 worth of cool...

You're not totally frozen from getting them...we're looking at how we can sell through remaining sets during or right after the show, though they will be very limited.

Yep, that's the only difference. Not everyone needs another dice bag; we're offering the bag as an upgrade for those folks that want it all (and an exploration of how well those sorts of products do) :)

Ah, this assumes there will be any left. I think they will do insanely well at the Con and therefore be extremely limited indeed. Are you taking pre-orders?  ;D

No pre-orders but it's important to note that we're actually leaving some of the dice home. There will be online orders but as Alex says they will be extremely limited.

OK, is anyone going to Gen Con that can possibly pick me up a set of the Mistborn Elite Dice Set? Let me know and I am happy to send you money via PayPal or some other means, including whatever S&H costs may be.

Please send me an e-mail at jscifert@bellsouth.net if you can help!!

Thanks :)

Aww man...it sucks not being able to go to GenCon  :(

Those dice look awesome! And if you have a full 11 dice set, you're the coolest kid on the next Mistborn Game  ;D

I think a Kickstarter would be a good idea ;) Because chances are very low that i'll get my hands on all of those 11 dice otherwise.
