More Photos and Other News
As we get very close to the end of the year and the beginning of the holiday season, we thought we could squeeze in one more update before 2023.
The delivery of the dice had to be delayed, as mentioned in update #27, but unfortunately for a little longer than we had hoped. This has meant the completion of the dice moved from the end of November to this week. Our shipping agent has been kept in the loop and is ready to collect the shipment when it is forwarded to the holding warehouse. Shipping dates and links to the tracking of the delivery will be posted up here when we have them.
In the meantime we have been busy preparing for the arrival of the dice and spreading the news. Below we have posted some more images of the dice, some of these pictures will be appearing on our website to replace the renders previously used.
Coming Soon to a Shop Near You.
Back in October Spidermind Games went to the Essen Game Fair in Germany to meet with a number of global distributors to talk dice and other Spidermind Games products. These meetings went exceptionally well and we signed with a number of distributors from Canada, Europe, the UK, South Africa and Australia. The reactions we had from the people we met, especially showing off the dice, was very encouraging and we are looking forward to building some amazing partnerships with these contacts.
We are expecting a number of orders to come through by the end of January and so we are currently looking at a second order of the Dragon Eye Dice as well as the first run from our Dice Collectors Club. These distribution deals will hopefully see our products in game stores around the world in the second half of 2023, which is a very exciting prospect.
Lord of the Rings
A little earlier in the year we were contacted by the team over at the charity game event company Lost Odyssey. They produce high-end celebrity gameplay shows and a few weeks ago they hosted their biggest event at the LA Comic Con to benefit Extra Life for Kids and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. This event was a play through of the Lord of the Rings Roleplaying game with some recognizable participants. We were delighted when we were invited to provide dice for the event, and so swiftly forwarded on to them the sample sets we had received from our factory prior to them beginning the full production run.
To get a glimpse of what the event is and how everyone will get an opportunity to see it, they released a number of trailers on these platforms. See if you can catch a glimpse of the dice and the eggs in action.

Also do take a look at the ebay hosted market place for the charity. We will be placing the Dragon Eye Dice in the market place closer to the release date and this will be covered in a future trailer.
The Spidermind Games team will be on holidays from this weekend until the 5th January 2023. We will be working behind the scenes on the delivery during the holidays but our customer service team will be off between these dates.
For now we would like to wish you all a Happy Holidays and a Prosperous and game filled New Year.

And the Spidermind Team
